ROME — “Culture is important for the country. There is no growth without culture nor any development,” said Gildo Zegna, chief executive officer of the Ermenegildo Zegna Group, following the unveiling of a work commissioned from artists Lucy and Jorge Orta, “Fabulae Romanae,” and presented on Wednesday at the Maxxi, Rome’s National Museum of the 21st-Century Arts.
“The public opinion is taking more interest in culture. Customers want to know more, it’s more than just about fashion,” Zegna added.
