A Trip to Italy for Brunello Cucinelli's 70th Birthday Celebration

A visit to Italy should include a stop in Umbria - a beautiful region bordering Tuscany, Lazio, and Le Marche.

Last month, I traveled to central Italy for the 70th birthday celebration of Brunello Cucinelli, the Italian luxury creative director and chief executive of the brand bearing his name. I traveled to Perugia, the historic capital city of Umbria. Situated on a hill, Perugia is the largest walled medieval city in Italy. Then it was a short drive to Solomeo, a hamlet within the Province of Perugia, that, since 1982, has served as Cucinelli’s home and, since 1985, his business headquarters. It was a brief trip - just two days - but it was filled with gorgeous views, historic walks through the village, delicious food, and great company.
