Brunello Cucinelli saves Norcia’s civic tower
The Italian company keeps on investing in restoring Norcia, which was significantly affected by the earthquake that took place in the center of Italy in 2016.
Brunello Cucinelli bets on Italy’s buildings. The Italian company has decided to contribute to the restoration of Norcia’s civic tower as well as Museum della Castellina and the town’s theater, which were significantly affected by the earthquake that took place in 2016 in the city.
The chief executive officer and founder of the company, Bruno Cucinelli, confirmed the plans of restoring Museum della Castellina, and the restoration of civic tower is set to finish in August next year. The civic tower built in 1700 is considered to be part of Norcia’s artistic and cultural heritage.

Even though the company’s headquarters are located in Solomeo, two hours away from places affected by the earthquake, Cucinelli will contribute to the restoration process of the city. “The earthquake that hit Norcia caused damages which can only heal when the city goes back to being the same and that is why I felt the urgence to take action,” stated Cucinelli.
The Italian company closed the first half of its fiscal year with a revenue of 291.4 million euros (324.3 million dollars), up 8.1% year-on-year. Founded in 1978, Brunello Cucinelli opened a textile factory specialized in the production of cashmere and knitwear. In the mid-eighties, the company started its international expansion with the opening of its own stores.
