rmenegildo’s brilliant business mind was not limited to his particular industrial field. He understood that the quality he sought for his products couldn’t be separated from a positive relationship with the local territory and the community. For him, the beauty of the natural environment and people’s well being – and not just that of his own employees – were indispensable for a company aspiring to long term success.

Angelo Zegna, current Honorary Chairman of the Group, describes his father’s achievements as: "I see four forces acting throughout my father’s life. First of all, he was born in the right environment to develop his business aptitudes. There were various small firms competing in a small area. Secondly, he was always determined to get the better of his British rivals, by offering creative Italian fabrics with unbeatable quality. The third force was an exceptionally open mind, especially regarding the social welfare of the territory and redistribution of value to workers. Lastly, there was his fundamentally important relationship with nature, his awareness that natural resources are limited and that we must protect them. He was an ecologist long before the term even existed!"

This commitment continues today. Each year the Zegna Group pursues continuous research to ensure the highest quality of its products in respect of the environment. The Oasi Zegna, a protected area spanning 100 km2 incorporating the Panoramica Zegna, was established in 1993 safeguarding a beautiful part of Italy, to be used and enjoyed by the public.

Moreover, the Group manages the philanthropic activities of the Zegna family in support of organizations that work to improve society and the environment. These activities are promoted by Fondazione Zegna, of which Anna Zegna is President.

 

The Foundation plans and coordinates international humanitarian initiatives in four areas of activity: conservation and amelioration of environmental and cultural resources; fostering of sustainable development in local communities, in Italy and beyond; support for medical and scientific research; and education and training for young people.
