Gorgeously designed, handsomely bound, and abundantly illustrated, this is the first book ever to present the 100 year history of a leading multinational in mens luxury clothing and one of the oldest business families in Italy. The name of Zegna immediately conjures up two inseparable realities. On one hand, one of the oldest families of entrepreneurs in Italy, and on the other a leading multinational company in the mens luxury clothing industry, distributing its products in over 80 countries worldwide. As a family business, Ermenegildo Zegna goes back to the second half of the 19th century. Angelo Zegna, a watchmaker by trade, decided to open a wool mill. Of his ten children it was the last, Ermenegildo born in 1892, who took over what was to become one of the best known and most dynamic family businesses in Italy.
