Italian entrepreneur, a major Italian industrialist, the founder and owner of Luxottica (luxurious optics, frames and sunglasses). From 1961 he was in partnership until 1969 when he and his wife bought the entire share packet and began under their own trade name. In 1978 they transformed the business into a joint-stock company and in 1981, they created their first commercial branches abroad. In 1990, the company was first quoted on the N.Y Stock Exchange and in April 1995, offices were opened in the U.S.

Del Vecchio is presently the President of Luxottica Group and has received the Knight of the Order of Labour Merit of the Italian Republic. He is married to Luciana Del Vecchio and they have three kids.
