Designerul care investeste milioane pentru a restaura un sat italian

Designerul Brunello Cucinelli este renumit pentru actele sale de caritate si ne surprinde acum din nou in mod placut prin noul sau proiect. Are in plan sa investeasca milioane de euro pentru a restaura un sat italian fondat in secolul al XII-lea. Este vorba de Solomeo, aflat la o distanta de doua ore si jumatate nord de Roma. 

Un proiect similar au avut si alte nume din industria modei. Casa Bulgari a renovat Treptele Spaniole din Roma, Fendi a renovat Fontana di Trevi, fondatorul Only the Brave, Renzo Rosso, podul Rialto din Venetia.

Brunello Cucinelli va restaura intreaga zona, va oferi locuri de munca, considerand satucul drept microcosmosul ideal al civilizatiei italiene. 

@brunellocucinelli, the Italian impresario of cashmere clothing, has an impassioned, mesmerizing, almost operatic way of speaking—complete with charades-like gestures and harlequin expressions. Taken in context with his English translator, Cucinelli’s booming proclamations have a cinematic quality, especially on location in the self-made billionaire’s native Solomeo, a hilltop hamlet tucked in the province of Perugia, about 90 miles southeast of Florence. It’s here, in the town peering down on valleys of rolling hills, olive groves, and pinstripe vines, that Cucinelli lives and runs his global enterprise. (The company was started in 1978 with the equivalent of about $550—a sum he has recently gifted employees to spend on items like books, opera tickets, and museum visits.) He speaks about the location in philosophical terms, the physical embodiment of an ideal. “Over the years, we have restored this hamlet by following the teachings of great architectural masters from the past,” the 65-year-old mogul says. “They showed us the importance of listening to the genius loci of a place—that is the way people live in a given area, the local culture, the respect for the community, and the architecture of these places.” Take a closer look inside Cuccinelli’s campaign to make the world more beautiful through the link in our profile.

Solomeo è un borgo di origini medievali (1300 circa) ed è immerso nel verde delle colline umbre. Il paesino è composto da un complesso rurale denominato Villa Solomei, a cui si aggiunse successivamente il Castello di Solomeo. A partire dal 1985 Brunello Cucinelli ha fatto del borgo la sede della sua impresa che lavora il pregiato tessuto in cashmire, conosciutissima in tutto il mondo. In foto la Chiesa di San Bartolomeo.
