If sustainability gains its concrete and most interesting dimension in the yarns exhibited on the stands of the 48th edition of Filo, Filo inauguration conference proposes a debate on the different approaches taken to the theme by different supply chains. It is not by chance that the title of the conference, organised by Filo in cooperation with ITA-Agency and Sistema Moda Italia, is ‘The thread of sustainable chains’. In order to participate it is necessary to register on the website.
The inauguration of the 48th Filo edition and the conference ‘The thread of sustainable chains’ is scheduled on the 27th of September 2017 at 2.30 pm at Palazzo delle Stelline in Milano – Sala Pirelli (entrance from Filo or from Corso Magenta 59). Carlo Piacenza, president of the Unione Industriale Biellese, will officially open the 48th edition of Filo. The program of the convention continues with the greetings from Marinella Loddo (director of ITA-Agency, Milan) and the interventions of Gianfranco Di Natale (Smi director and Confindustria Moda), Ercole Botto (president of Milano Unica), Alessandro Zucchi (president of Acimit), Andrea Crespi (Sustainability Commission, Smi), Roberta Ianna (Divisione I, Inverventions for sustainable development, Ministry of Environment), Francesco Laera (European Commission, Milan). The conference ends with the “focus” dedicated to Russia.
The first working day of the 48th Filo edition ends with the FiloHappening, the usual meeting at the FiloLounge: an opportunity to meet conference’s speakers, exhibitors and textile industry’s operators, tasting the products belonging to a different but well-known and sustainable supply chain: Biella’s food one.
