Natalie Dompé’s Milan
Nathalie Dompè, Milan, 1986.
A socially aware and determined young woman, with her own vision of ethic and aesthetic matters. She began doing volunteer work during her high school years, at the Institute for the Blind and with the elderly. After graduating in Business Administration from the Bocconi University, Nathalie studied theatre and in the meantime spent a period of time in Africa, volunteering at an orphanage.
Daughter to Sergio Dompè, the Chairman of Dompè Farmaceutici S.p.A. and former President of Farmindustria, two years ago Nathalie joined the family-owned company, where she is responsible for Corporate Social Responsibility activities, an area of special relevance in the healthcare sector. To her company ethical issues are a top priority, to her these issues are an instinctive concern.
Knowing full well that she belongs to a generation that is aware of the social context and social impact, she has chosen a role that enables her to promote – consistently and in a structured manner – projects with specific targets, in keeping with the values of a company which is an active part of our time. A recent pathway that is already developing along clear-cut lines and that looks to the future.
Nathalie wears her clothes with the simple and essential elegance handed down by her mother, Patrizia Signorini. To her, style of dress and living accommodations are an important form of communication. She adores her home that looks onto the rooftops in the centre of Milan, a home she never wants to change and where she gives precedence to a choice of highly sophisticated colours and extremely clean forms. Sometimes she enjoys wearing highly refined clothes. Says: “It’s wrong to minimise, life must also be light-hearted.”
“Milan is a city that has to be explored. The best places are all hidden away. I love the unusual restaurants like Mitsuba, the miniscule Japanese restaurant in Piazza XXIV Maggio, and La Brisa in Via Brisa with its unexpected courtyard. I am very fond of Vicolo dei Lavandai on the Naviglio canal because of its olde-worlde charm. I always walk in the Indro Montanelli gardens with Oki, my golden retriever.“
