Anna Zegna

Anna Zegna is the president of Fondazione Zegna, the charitable arm of Italian luxury brand Ermenegildo Zegna. She is an avid home cook who loves to share recipes from her native Piedmont.


Anna Zegna inherited her great-grandfather's appreciation of the land on which the family's business was founded over 100 years ago. According to her, the water in Trivero is the magic ingredient that produces both superior wool and excellent risotto. The connection is the love and care with which an ingredient is used. For Anna, this is the key to great cooking. When she is not overseeing the Zegna foundation's international philanthropic work, Anna can be found cooking for her family.
