An Italian Fashionista’s Diary – 30 Days in Milan – Day 6: Economics, Zegna and Kwanza’s Birthday Celebration

Today we are learning about Italian Economics, Italian life and everything else that happens here.  The country is not in a good place financially, and the government is very sketchy.  Northern Italy tends to be more affluent than Southern Italy.  Italians are very laid back, no one is really in a hurry here.  Lunch is not usually less than 2 hours.  Work can be from 10am to 12pm or 1pm and then resumes around 3pm or 4pm in the evening ending around 6pm or 7pm.  I must say I like that!

Later in the afternoon, I had the privilege of visiting Ermenegildo Zegna’s showroom.  What a treat!!  I made a new Italian friend named Francesca Pedrazzi who was kind enough to show me around.  There are three lines: Ermenegildo Zegna, Zegna Sport, and Z Zegna









Ermenegildo Zegna

Thank you Francesca for a fabulous time!!!

Kwanza is turning 20 today so we are going out to Old Fashioned to celebrate!  Needless to say we had a great time!!!
