Edoardo Agnelli Buried in Italy

November 16, 2000

ROME (AP) _ Edoardo Agnelli, the son of the head of the Fiat dynasty, was buried in the family tomb on Thursday, a day after his body was found under a highway bridge, an apparent suicide.

Only his closest relatives attended the private funeral in Villar Perosa, outside Turin. They included his father Giovanni Agnelli, honorary chairman of Fiat, his mother Marella and sister Margherita.

Fiat factories around the world observed a minute of silence.

Edoardo Agnelli, 46, never held any position with the auto company. His younger cousin, Giovanni Alberto Agnelli, was being groomed to take over, but he died of cancer three years ago at the age of 33.
