Former Miss Italy contestant Gessica Notaro is scarred for life after her jilted boyfriend Jorge Tavares allegedly threw acid in her face in January. Gessica, 28, spent two months imprisoned in her hospital room in Cesena, Rimini, being treated for her horrific injuries, after she was ambushed. She could only speak to visitors through a glass window. Her mother had to be sterilised before entering the room. Now, she faces a year-long wait until she is well enough for plastic surgery, spending £600 a month on medication, eye drops and lotions, to subdue her pain. Gessica, who still wears a protective face mask, bravely recalled the moment she looked in the mirror for the first time and felt relieved that, despite the scarring, she still recognised her face. Tavares, from Cape Verde, who denies the attack, is in jail in Italy awaiting trial.
