BACK TO SCHOOL: Diego Della Valle has donated a spanking new public elementary school for the company’s hometown, Casette d’Ete, in the Marche region. Called Scuola Elementare Della Valle, the school will be filled with students beginning on Sept. 16. The project, which started a year and half ago, is Della Valle’s thank-you to the community that helped support his business. Designed by Della Valle’s wife, architect Barbara Pistilli, the plan was to create a real campus, a rarity in Italy, where schools tend to be old palaces or structures. The 15-class school boasts 30,000 square feet of green landscape, eco-friendly solar panels, a library, a gym, a sports field and a botanical garden.
