Rediscover ZEGNA’s Narrative And Ethos In Their Latest Born In Oasi Zegna: The Book

Born in Oasi Zegna: The Book is a multifaceted expression of ZEGNA’s core identity, capturing its ethos through a blend of imagery, historical anecdotes, illustrations and words. This book is a tribute to Ermenegildo Zegna’s vision, who initiated a reforestation endeavour in the Biella Alps, creating Oasi ZEGNA as a convergence of humanity, industry and nature. Spanning 100 square kilometres, this territory symbolises ZEGNA’s commitment to community and environmental stewardship since its inception in 1910. During the recent Milan Design Week, the book was showcased through an immersive narrative, bringing its pages to life amidst lush greenery sourced from Oasi ZEGNA itself. Born in Oasi Zegna: The Book is now available exclusively at ZEGNA stores worldwide and online.
