Cav. Lav. Brunello Cucinelli Executive Chairman and Creative Director

Brunello Cucinelli was born in 1953 in Castel Rigone, a small 13th-century hamlet in the province of Perugia, to a peasant family.

After obtaining a diploma as building surveyor, he enrolled in the faculty of Engineering, but dropped out his studies. In 1978 he set up a small company and amazed the market with the idea of dyeing cashmere. Since he was a boy, he witnessed his father's painful working events and became a close observer of the world, thus developing the dream of work that respected human being's moral and economic dignity.

This aspect is crucial to understand his personality and the success of his company, which Brunello sees not only as a source of wealth, but also as a sphere of action to develop and increase the dream of a capitalism that values the human being. The knowledge of the great men of the past fuels his dreams and ideals, but his gaze is constantly turned to the future, and each of his actions, works is designed to last through the centuries.

In 1982, after marrying Federica Benda, with whom he had two daughters, Camilla and Carolina, Brunello moved to Solomeo, which became the home of his dreams and the great laboratory of his successes as an entrepreneur and humanist. The benevolent welcoming that the market, which in the meantime had become international, reserved for his Made in Italy quality products, gave him the opportunity to realize his ideals. In 1985 he bought the hamlet's 14th-century ruined castle and made it the company's headquarters; in 2000, in order to adequate the production facilities to the growing demands of the market, he bought and adapted an existing factory at the foot of the hamlet of Solomeo, avoiding the construction of new ones.

The new building of the “Forum of the Arts”, with the annexed Aurelian Neohumanist Library, the Gymnasium, the Amphitheater and the Theater, became the deputed place of culture and art. It was at that time that the desire, concretized in 2012, to present the enterprise to the Milan Stock Exchange was born. Even in this caseit was not only about the financial aspect, because Brunello saw in the broader participation in his activity as an entrepreneur the possibility of widely spreading the ideals of a new capitalism, a "Humanistic Capitalism."

From the experience of the “Forum of the Arts”, built by Umbrian master craftsmen and inspired by William Morris and John Ruskin, came the idea of the "School of High Contemporary Crafts for Arts and Crafts," which came to light in 2013. Brunello's vision for the future wants the memory of such an important humanistic factor as craftsmanship should be preserved and transmitted, and the school is the place where this aspiration is transformed into reality.

In 2014, the Brunello and Federica Cucinelli Foundation presented the Project for Beauty, with which three vast parks were realized in the valley at the foot of the hamlet of Solomeo (Parco Agrario, Parco dell’Oratorio Laico, Parco dell’Industria) by recovering part of the land occupied by old disused factories in favor of trees, orchards and meadows. The initiative symbolizes the crucial value of the land, from which, according to the thought of Senòphanes, "everything comes." With this project Brunello emphasises the imperative of restoring dignity to the earth, and feeling himself a little custodian of creation, he demonstrates that "Beauty will save the world," whenever the world, in turn, will save Beauty.

Brunello Cucinelli has received an extraordinary number of national and international awards for his "Humanistic Capitalism": in 2018, the University of Messina, deeming Brunello Cucinelli a "concrete thinker, cultural promoter and true patron of our times," awarded him a PhD in Philosophy honoris causa. In previous years the prestigious appointments, in 2010, as Cavaliere del Lavoro, given to him by the President of the Republic of Italy, and in the same year the Honorary Degree in Philosophy and Ethics of Human Relations with which the University of Perugia wanted to pay tribute to his high activity as a humanist entrepreneur. In 2017 he received the "Global Economy Prize for the World Economy" by the influential Kiel Institute, which commented that he was able to "[...] perfectly embody the figure of the Honorable Merchant". In 2018, another prestigious title of excellence was awarded to him with the appointment as Cavaliere di Gran Croce al merito della Repubblica Italiana. In September 2021, he received in London the "Designer of the Year" award, conferred on him by the leading British men's fashion magazine "GQ", in confirmation of his constant humanistic commitment as a fashion designer and entrepreneur and for various Human Sustainability projects. In October 2021, Brunello Cucinelli was invited to attend the G20 in Rome to bring his idea of "Humanistic Capitalism and Human Sustainability" to the attendance of world leaders and the then His Highness Prince, now King, Charles of the United Kingdom. In 2022he was awarded the title of Doctor Honoris Causa in Management,Banking and Commodity Sciences, by the University of Rome "La Sapienza”, a prestigious title that Rector Antonella Polimeni commented with beautiful words, "for having been able to combine a successful entrepreneurial story with respect for the vocation of the territory and social values, giving birth to a new humanism of enterprise." The special feature of his entrepreneurial action has always been to offer work with full respect for "the moral and economic dignity of human being." Business was therefore conceived by him, not only as a means of generating profit, but also as a means of developing a model of capitalism that places human beings and their enhancement at the center. In March 2023 he was awarded the prestigious "Neiman Marcus Award for distinguished service in the field of fashion," which the Dallas-based luxury department store confers on figures around the world who have most influenced fashion since the 1930s. In December, the prestigious men's fashion magazine GQ China gave the "Designer of the Year 2023" award to Brunello Cucinelli for "distinguishing himself as a trend-setter in fashion and lifestyle."

    Camilla personally supervises the development of the collections and all their phases, scheduling periodic research trips and attending major international exhibitions in order to gather and study trends and materials. The in-depth analysis of textile fibers and yarns constitutes one of the most intense moments of the entire process, together with the selection of colors, which also involves continuous comparisons between Camilla and the Style Office team.

    Great importance in her activities is the aspect of sustainability, the pillar and founding value of the entire Brunello Cucinelli philosophy, which is applied methodically and with great rigor to the creative process.

    Camilla studies the silhouette of individual garments in detail, placing particular emphasis on proportions and dimensions, finally arriving at the complex phase of garment industrialization that will lead to the production.

    Camilla's activity focuses on both ready-to-wear collections and the varied universe of accessories, and both lines are conceived and created with the aim of producing a total look that harmoniously combines the two types of products.

    She is constantly devoted to the development of all those activities that involve sociocultural initiatives for the benefit of the local community and the enhancement and maintenance of the hamlet of Solomeo.

    Executive Director

    Born in Perugia on Feb. 23, 1991, Carolina is the second-born daughter of Federica and Brunello Cucinelli.

    After graduating from high school with an artistic diploma in Fashion and Costume-a course of training that enabled her to learn about cutting, tailoring and printing on fabric-she became increasingly passionate about studying the subject in the creation of garments.

    In 2010 she joined the family enterprise Brunello Cucinelli. While initially she worked as an assistant in the Women's Style Office and then took on the role of head of the Accessories Division department, she later made a fundamental contribution to the realization of the digital project, "Artigiani umanisti del web," whose main results of which were the e-commerce platform (online boutique) and the redesigned company website. Carolina supervises the company's image and communication, especially through social platforms, which she often uses to give visibility to projects that are more strictly aimed at the younger generations, with a view to enthusing and involving young people who want to express their vocation.

    While closely following communication projects, she has also gradually become interested in the company's business strategy in the commercial sphere and its development, both wholesale and retail.

    She significantly contributed to the development and consolidation of the fundamental understanding of the Brunello Cucinelli brand with prestigious companies such as Oliver Peoples (2021) and, more recently, Luxottica (2022) and Euroitalia (2023), which led to the conception and creation of exclusive products such as eyeglasses, sunglasses and the recently presented fragrances for Women and Men.

    Carolina has been capable to better express such qualities by creating and cultivating, over time, pleasant relationships with all those friends of the brand, who are used to attend the events that from time to time are organized by the Cucinelli family, by profoundly sharing the founding values of the Impresa di Solomeo.

    In particular, together with her sister Camilla, she has been very active in the renovation project of the hamlet of Solomeo and in a series of social and cultural promotion activities that have brought significant benefits to the area. More precisely, by hosting international performances every year at the Cucinelli Theater and organizing open-air cinema in the summer at the Foro delle Arti in Solomeo, Carolina gave an impulse to an artistic-cultural program capable of strengthening the sense of community and making Solomeo an attractive hub for quality events.
