For Filo, a brief tour around Italy – or better around some Italian textile districts – is going to start. Indeed, the road-show to present its 48th edition is starting and it is obvious that the starting ‘Go!’ comes from Biella, the district of wool excellence: the meeting is then scheduled at 10.30 at Unione Industriale Biellese (via Torino, 56). The journey continues in Milan on the 20th of June, at 10.30 again, at Palazzo delle Stelline (Corso Magenta, 61). The third and last stage is scheduled on Thursday the 22nd of June in Prato, at 2 pm at the local Chamber of Commerce (via del Romito, 71). These three meetings represent also the opportunity to present and show the products’ development proposals selected for the 48th Filo edition.
Filo considers these meetings for presenting the exhibition fundamental. The reasons why are explained by Paolo Monfermoso, manager of Filo: “The road-show for the presentation of the 48th edition of Filo are paramount for us since allow us to meet the exhibitors some months before the opening of the fair. Therefore, we have the opportunity to listen to their needs and, from our point of view, show them news about the fair in September, through a direct dialogue, aiming at strengthen the features of efficacy and concreteness that have always characterized Filo”. Not only. An important part of these three meetings is dedicated to yarns and stylistic aspects, with products’ development proposals selected by Gianni Bologna: they are inspired to Planet Earth and at the same time they represent a preview and a perfect appendix of the general issue chosen for the 48th edition of Filo: sustainability.
The 48th edition of Filo is scheduled on the 27th and 28th of September 2017 at Palazzo delle Stelline in Milan.
