| ||Ermenegildo Zegna
founded the company in 1910 in Trivero in the Biellese
Prealps. Zegna quickly gained a reputation for
producing fine quality wool for suits, and by the end of the
1930s, the Wool Mill employed 1,000 workers. In 1938 the
Zegna Woollens Corporation was set up in New York although
exports were not helped by the privations of war. When
Ermenegildo's sons Aldo (born 1920) and Angelo (born 1924)
joined the company in 1942, it was renamed Ermenegildo Zegna
and Sons. By 1955, the company employed 1,400 workers.
Ermenegildo died in 1966 at the age of 74. Aldo and Angelo
took over the business and two years later they launched a
line of ready-made suits, produced in Zegna's factory in
Novara. || |
