The Zegna family, together with the Group’s top management, have pledged personal donations to the Civil Protection in Italy totaling 3 million Euros. This donation is in support of the nurses, doctors, scientists, and volunteers across Italy who have been working tirelessly to fight this epidemic.

The Zegna Group will also convert a part of its production facilities in Italy and Switzerland to the manufacturing of medical masks, that will provide critical supplies to both Zegna’s employees and to the wider needs in Italy and Switzerland.

The Zegna Group has also made a direct financial contribution to provide several hospitals with ventilators and medical masks.

“At Zegna we believe our actions today will shape our tomorrow,” said Gildo Zegna, CEO of Ermenegildo Zegna. “The pandemic we are all facing is a call for people around the world to take action. Each of us must do our part, in every way possible, to stop this global emergency.”

Zegna added, “Our thoughts are with all those affected by the Coronavirus outbreak, and we join in the appeal to people in affected areas to stay at home and remain safe.”
