Sull’emergenza economica causata dal diffondersi del coronavirus è intervenuto Carlo Piacenza, presidente dell’Unione Industriale Biellese. Ecco il testo del suo intervento.
To Zegna Baruffa Lane Borgosesia, attention to detail remains an essential constant of all products, at the service of high quality products. An all-Italian realization, whose substance is the culture of know-how; a knowledge accumulated for years, a mix of aesthetics, technical and technological ability, a quality in balance between utility, functionality, beauty, real respect for people and the environment.
A great deal of curiosity had been created around the 53rd edition of Filo for the many new features planned, starting from the new exhibition venue at MiCo in Milan Convention Centre, Unfortunately, the exhibition that was due to be held in late February was canceled due to the coronavirus epidemic.
Now Filo is already looking proactively at its 54th edition, scheduled for 6 and 7 October 2020. However, the fact remains that with the cancellation of the 53rd edition of Filo, the exhibiting companies lost the opportunity to show their collections to international and national buyers during the two days of the fair. FiloNewsLetter then proposes itself as a space at companies’ disposal to present their products, albeit “remotely”.
Following the cancellation of the 53rd edition of Filo, the exhibiting companies missed the opportunities to show both to national and international buyers their collections during the two days of fair. The FiloNewsLetter then proposes itself as a space at their disposal to present their products, albeit “remotely”.
As it has been already communicated, the 53rd Filo edition, planned for Thursday 27 and Friday 28 February 2020 at MiCo in Milan, has been canceled. The decision was taken due to the emergency caused by the spread of Covid-19 virus and, in particular, following the order from Lombardy Region issued on Sunday the 23rd of February 2020.
The 53rd edition of Filo, scheduled for Thursday 27 and Friday 28 February 2020 MiCo – Milano Convention Center, has been canceled.
The decision has been taken due to the severity of the emergency related to the virus Covid-19, confirmed by the recent measures of the public authorities, and in particular the Regione Lombardia decree released on Sunday February 23 2020, signed by the President of Regione Lombardia, Attilio Fontana, and by the Health Ministry Roberto Speranza. The decree provides for the “suspension of events or initiatives of any nature, of shows and of any form of meeting in public or private places”, thus objectively making it impossible to carry out the 53rd edition of Filo.
The rapid – and extremely critical – evolution of the health emergency in Northern Italy, and in particular in the Lombardy region, made this decision necessary, determined by reasons of force majeure, as well as protecting the safety of the exhibitors and visitors themselves, their collaborators and their families.
Filo is aware of the problems resulting from this decision for all the operators involved, national and international, but can only comply with the decisions of the public authorities, given the continuous dramatic evolution of the crisis caused by the new Coronavirus. To cancel the 53rd edition of Filo is therefore a decision taken with great regret, but also with a sense of responsibility.
