A FORMER Miss Italy finalist has been scarred for life and may be left blinded after her ex-boyfriend allegedly threw acid in her face and EYES.
Gessica Notaro, 28, was attacked outside her home on the east coast of Italy and also sustained injuries to her hip and leg.
The model was reportedly left with ‘deep’ burns to her face and eyes following the cruel attack.
Cops have arrested the model’s former lover Jorge Edson Tavares, 29, in the connection with the horrific assault.
Gessica, who is in a serious but stable condition in a specialist hospital unit, took out a harassment order against Tavares after the pair broke up, reports La Stampa.
Tavares, from Cape Verde, claims he has an alibi, police confirmed.
The former couple reportedly met while working at a dolphin show at an aquarium together.
After appearing as a finalist in the 2007 Miss Italy contest, Gessica worked as a TV presenter.
A close friend of the model said her family are devastated by the depraved acid attack.
They said: “She was always smiling, always optimistic.
“Her mother is destroyed by this.”
