Biography of Carla Bruni
Childhood and family of Carla Bruni
Full maiden name before marriage – Carla Gilbert Bruni Tedeschi.
The future first lady of France, model, singer and actress Carla Bruni-Sarkozy was born on December 23, 1968 in Turin (Italy). Carla’s family was musical. Mother Marisa Borini was an accompanist, father Alberto Bruni Tedeschi, an Italian by birth, was an opera composer and part-time industrialist.

Carla’s blood father is businessman Maurizio Remert, with whom her mother once had a rather long affair.
Carla also has a sister, who has become a popular actress, and a brother, who is now engaged in artistic activities.
The whole artistic family of Bruni lived in Turin, in the castle of Piedmont, as long as it was safe there. Beginning in 1974, a terrorist group appeared in Italy, which was engaged in the abduction of children. Fearing for the lives of their children, the Bruni family moved from Italy to France. There, Carla went to study at a Swiss school, and also mastered playing the guitar and piano. After school, Carla Bruni entered the Faculty of Art History at the Institute at the Sorbonne, where she studied quite a bit, as the girl was captured by the modeling business.
