Our Road

Ermenegildo Zegna Group
The road ahead that Ermenegildo Zegna Group keeps following originated in 1910. Physically and passionately, we are still journeying down the 232 Road our founder built over 110 years ago in Piedmont, Northern Italy, which at the time was no more than barren rocks and one man’s unwavering dream for the future. This road is our inspiration as it defines our path, woven into innovation, creativity and sustainability by echoing the essential truth of our founder. It is OUR ROAD TO TOMORROW.

Our founder not only built one of Italy’s most successful family companies, but along the way he built a community around his wool mill and planted the Oasi Zegna nature territory sprawling 100 km2, on what was once a near lifeless mountainside, establishing a legacy of environmental protection and sustainability. He built a new kind of ethical entrepreneurship and an ethos of giving back.
Every day since, the road he paved has guided our responsible development, having steadily evolved from a superior wool fabric producer to a global luxury group, encompassing the brands ZEGNA, Thom Browne, TOM FORD FASHION and a Luxury Textile Laboratory Platform, an unrivalled textile manufacturing division assuring continuity, preserving know-how, and continuing to create value for "Made in Italy" in the name of craftsmanship and innovation.

Our Road is a powerful symbol for the Ermenegildo Zegna Group. It charts our history and our mission, entwined in progressive ideas. It always looks forward, forging a future that is worthy of our dreams, while also leaving a path that others might follow, purposefully enabling our community with a shared mindset. Led by Gildo Zegna, Chairman and CEO, the Ermenegildo Zegna Group designs, creates and distributes luxury ready-to-wear and accessories under both the ZEGNA and Thom Browne brands. The Group also operates TOM FORD FASHION through a long-term license agreement with The Estée Lauder Companies Inc.

"Our Road began with a vision and a dream of a man, my grandfather, who transformed ideas into fabrics, weaving a forest, a community and a new style of life. Inspired by the journey he traveled so far, we move forward on Our Road to Tomorrow”
The founder’s mission, passed on from one generation to the next with visionary entrepreneurial finesse, is to create beautiful things of the finest quality applying a responsible approach to production. In this sense, superb fabrics, impeccable clothing and outstanding accessories come together to preserve a unique ecosystem.
