Entrepreneur and manager, born in Rome September 26, 1966 and a descendant of the Marzotto family of Vicenza, Matteo Marzotto has style in his blood, son of Count Umberto Francesco and Marta Vacondio.
In 1836, his family has launched a company of fabric production that has survived the Great Depression and two World Wars, the Marzotto SpA: company that has a strong influence on the fashion industry, constantly trying to offer technologically advanced materials.
President of the Vionnet, of the school management Fondazione CUOA of Vicenza Altavilla and of the Vicenza Fair, but also Vice President of the Cystic Fibrosis Research Foundation. He was the general manager of Valentino, for which, in 2002, he rolled up his sleeves to get out the company from a negative moment.
Present in the 2009 International Best Dressed List of Vanity Fair, Matteo Marzotto is not only a successful businessman, but also a sportive, he is, in fact, a skier, a cyclist and a motorcyclist.
Undeniable style icon and representative of the most elegant magnates in the world, the smiling Matteo Marzotto is an out of the ordinary businessman, with a refined and unusual sense of taste. He wears tailored suits that lives in freedom, slipping his hands into the pockets of a double chest suit and makes a wink. But what is matter is not so much what he wears, but how he wears: his wardrobe doesn’t differ so much from the one of any elegant man of Milan, made of wool dresses, white and blue shirts, sober ties, trench coats and tailored coats.
The Marzotto’s tailor size his clothes neatly: there are the classic Italian-style shoulder, a relatively high throat and large lapel of his trousers, which might be considered unfashionable. Despite his connection to the major brands of Italian fashion industry, his clothing has nothing to do with brands, but he wears handmade suits. None of his style is left to chance, but it wasn’t meant to be noticed.
Great lover of suits, Marzotto always shows an elegant style, characterized by neutral colors like black, navy, brown and gray, and sometimes proposing pinstripes models. He uses accessories to add a personal touch and a way to bring his ensemble: was seen wearing either a tie and a handkerchief, an IWC or Patek Philippe, in line with his refined style, and a small gold bracelet engraved with his family motto. Matteo Marzotto pays attention to fabrics, cuts, as well as the size of the collar and the placement of buttons: details that make the difference between a common suit and a dress to impress.
