Milan, 27th March 2020 - “At Zegna we believe our actions today will shape our tomorrow. 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”, says Gildo Zegna, CEO of Ermenegildo Zegna.
The Zegna family, together with the Group’s top management, have pledged personal donations to the Civil Protection in Italy totalling 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 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 masks.
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.
UNITED, WE WILL MAKE IT!
