The case against fashion duo Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana - who have been found guilty of tax evasion - dates back to an investigation that began in 2008.
A judge ruled that the pair sold their brand to Luxembourg-based holding company Gado in 2004 to avoid declaring taxes on royalties of about 1 billion euros.
The designers are one of the few high-profile cases to have come to trial so far since Italian authorities launched a tax avoidance crackdown.
