We are the foundation of OTB, the parent company of fashion brands Diesel, Maison Margiela, Marni, Paula Cademartori, Viktor&Rolf, and companies Staff International, and Brave Kid. Driven by the belief that social entrepreneurship is an alternative model of development, we support many social enterprises in the implementation of solutions to social-environmental issues, generating a positive and long-lasting impact on society.

We use simple selection criteria to choose the projects we support: they must be innovative, have a direct social impact, and be sustainable


Il Gusto Per La Ricerca supports OTB Foundation. All of the proceeds will be donated to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of the Hospital of Padua, the Pediatric Hospice of Padua and to the Piccolo Principe organization.

Since our creation in 2008 we have supported many different projects and initiatives worldwide. Most of the foundation’s funds are invested in international projects, playing a significant social, economic and environmental role in the communities and countries the group is present. Without of course forgetting Italy, and in particular in the territory where the group OTB is based and where the foundation invests in several programs chosen according to its overall selection criteria


Innovation, direct social impact, sustainability


“Innovative, sustainable, generating a direct social impact. This is what I want to do and how I want to do it. Less talk and more concrete results”

In 2008, inspired by his Holiness the Dalai Lama, Renzo Rosso established the Only The Brave Foundation to structure his social engagement efforts into a proper program. Because of his personal commitment with the Only The Brave Foundation, Renzo Rosso was appointed Millennium Development Goals Global Leader by the United Nations with the task to generate awareness on issues like social inequality and sustainable development within the industry, the administration and the general public
