Franco Gatti’s death cause hasn’t been revealed to the public. The closest guess the media can so far make is the connection to his past diseases. Franco once had Crohn’s disease while fighting off the coronavirus in October 2020. On the Storie Italian program with Eleonora Daniele, Franco once discussed that he had the disease as a kid, but it was gone for 30 years. His doctor, Dr.Furnari, treated him with cortisone which gave mixed results as it caused candida overgrowth in his stomach and herpes.
Crohn’s disease or covid does not certainly cause Franco’s death, but the disease significantly affected his immune system. The media had been trying to reach his family and relatives hoping for any information regarding his death. As of yet, any information regarding his death has not been revealed, but we hope the family soon speaks of his death cause.
