SHOWING SUPPORT: On the sidelines of the Pitti Uomo press conference in Milan Friday, and responding to the recent tax probe that has hit a few members of the Marzotto family, Pitti Immagine president Gaetano Marzotto told WWD: “Of course we are sorry for what happened to our cousins and we hope that the investigations will confirm their version of the facts. But what hurts us more is the media thrashing. Journalists have treated them as they are guilty, and this is totally unfair. Even if [the Marzottos] will be acquitted, the media has already damaged the image of a family and of a company, which has invested millions in Italy.”
