MILAN — Giannino Marzotto, heir to the Marzotto textile dynasty, died on Saturday after battling cancer. He was 84. A funeral service will be held today in Trissino, Italy, near Valdagno, where the Marzotto group is based.
Marzotto, a count, was the son of Gaetano Marzotto, who shaped the family company into one of Italy’s preeminent textile manufacturers. He worked for more than two decades at the family-owned company, and left his role as chairman in 1969, succeeded by his brother Pietro. He remained a shareholder and was actively involved in the business. Charity activities and giving back became priorities for Marzotto, just as they were for his father, to whom he was very close. Last year, marking the 150th anniversary of Italy’s unification, he created a Gaetano Marzotto Award to help support future entrepreneurs.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
