As part of the 25-year project, which donates one million euros on a yearly basis, the men's wear group invited 163 students to Trivero, Italy, where the company was founded in 1910 and where it is still based.
MILAN — Starting in 2014, the Ermenegildo Zegna Group earmarked 25 million euros to stimulate excellence in Italy.
The Ermenegildo Zegna Founder’s Scholarship is a tribute to the namesake founder of the giant men’s wear firm, who died in 1966, known for both his philanthropic activities and his innovative approach to business. Every year, in a 25-year project, the group provides one million euros to enable talented Italian graduates to pursue postgraduate studies or conduct research outside of Italy. The funds are granted on condition that those students return to Italy upon completion of their programs abroad.
