Pal Zileri was founded in 1980 in Vicenza, in the heart of the Veneto region, by two Italian entrepreneurs, Gianfranco Barizza and Aronne Miola. Named after Palazzo Zileri, an elegant landmark building in Vicenza, Pal Zileri’s home land not only has defined the brand’s legacy over the years, but still serves as an endless source of inspiration. Since the Renaissance, the Veneto has been a fervent cradle of art, history and excellence in all its forms.
Inspired by visionary architect Andrea Palladio, Barizza and Miola revisited tradition in a contemporary manner. They founded Forall Confezioni S.p.A in 1970, introducing the idea of ""democratic tailoring,"" that led to a revolution in style via new shapes, fabrics and colors. A new business “for all”. This process culminated in 1980 with the launch of their own high-end menswear label Pal Zileri.
Today the company is fully owned by Mayhoola Group of Qatar, which in July 2016 acquired the full stake in Forall Confezioni S.p.A. As part of its new course, Giovanni Mannucci was named Chief Executive Officer in October 2016. His aim is to steer the business in a new era of global development, growth and consolidation. The creative direction is guided by Rocco Iannone, who was appointed in July 2017. Shaped by his deep Italian roots, he adds his vision and aesthetic to the established codes of men’s wear.
