Designed to an innovative archive and museum concept in a building from the ’30s that was once the family’s home, it now has, in addition to a splendid collection of 19th century samples, a permanent exhibition and a space for temporary exhibitions and teaching.
“A Century of Excellence. From Textile Factory to Style Factory” reveals the story of a family business built by four generations committed to realizing the vision and ideals of the founder: quality, continuous innovation, social and environmental responsibility. Archive records and visual documentation find new expression in the exhibition display and in the historical garments gallery.
Casa Zegna hosts exhibitions on the history of the Zegna Group embracing both the entrepreneurial heritage and the philanthropic activity. The origins of the Wool Mill, the evolution in the brand and style, the Panoramica road project and Oasi Zegna are narrated in exhibitions through historical items and documents, thematic researches and images by acclaimed photographers.
Educational activities are organized for small children.
In the “From Sheep to Suit” workshop, kids can discover the production process that transforms wool into suits, from the distant origins of the raw materials to the wool mill in Trivero, via the history of Ermenegildo Zegna and his family.
In the “A walk around art” workshop, young visitors are accompanied by a guide and an actor on a tour to discover the contemporary art works created for the ALL'APERTO project and the relationships between the people of Trivero, the Ermenegildo Zegna Wool Mill and the surrounding country.
Casa Zegna opens in spring and autumn, every Sunday and for special initiatives, from 14.00 to 18.00, with expert staff at visitors’ disposal.
