The 58th edition of Filo, which took place at Allianz MiCo Milan on 14 and 15 September 2022, was brimming with business, meetings and events. There was great satisfaction among the exhibitors for the constant flow of visitors and, in particular, for the arrival at the fair of many foreign buyers, with numbers that exceeded the levels of 2019.
“Sustainability and creativity: from new Textiles to new Fashion” was the title chosen for the opening ceremony of the 58th edition of Filo.

The “Dialoghi di Confronto” – the short talks that accompany the two days of Filo – are intended to enlarge the discussion on crucial issues for the textile industry. At the 58th edition of Filo, particular interest was raised by the research on the opportunities and challenges of the UK textile market, carried out by the Piedmont Region and Ceipiemonte as part of the “Textile” Integrated Supply Chain Project (PIF) promoted by the Piedmont Region and financed thanks to the POR-FESR Piedmont 2014-2020 funds.
An exceptional exhibition was set up in the 58th edition of Filo: “Aesthetics ’70. Brunetta’s genius dialogues with Franco’s creativity”, curated by Elisabetta Invernici.
Filo, the Exhibition of Yarns and Fibres, welcome you to the 58th edition.
The ideal starting point for visiting Filo is the Dialoghi Creativi Area, which offers the “highlights” of the exhibitors’ collections. From this edition it incorporates the Quick Delivery Area and “Un Filo per la Maglia”. The inspiration is taken from “Languages” proposed by Gianni Bologna (creativity and style responsible for Filo). By focusing attention on the product and its possible developments, the inspirations of Filo’s “Dialoghi Creativi” have a unique connotation in the panorama of textile fairs.
Totally dedicated to the “green” proposals of the exhibiting companies is the Sustainability Area, which gives space and prominence to Filo’s sustainability project, FiloFlow. In the Sustainability Area, a specific “Green” Guide Book is available to visitors – with the exhibiting companies that adhere to FiloFlow – and which accompanies the general guide book.
At 10.30 am today 14 September the appointment is with the opening ceremony of the 58th edition of Filo: “Sustainability and creativity: from new textiles to new fashion”. Speakers are: Paolo Monfermoso (Responsible for Filo), Pier Francesco Corcione (President of ITS TAM Biella), Elena Chiorino (Councilor for Education, Work, Vocational Training, Right to University Study of the Piedmont Region), Massimo Crivelli (designer) and Martino Midali (designer). To follow, the press conference for the presentation of the exhibition “Aesthetics ’70. Brunetta’s genius dialogues with Franco’s creativity”, set up exclusively for Filo.
The Networking Area is the stage for the “Dialoghi di Confronto”. They are short talks, led by illustrious personalities in the textile-fashion sector, which follow one another over the two days of the fair and address highly topical issues for the sector: in the foreground there is sustainability and the reuse of materials.
Filo is looking forward to welcoming you at Allianz MiCo – Milano Convention Center (via Gattamelata 5).
Biella, September 14 2022
The opening ceremony of the 58th edition of Filo on “Sustainability and creativity: from new textiles to new fashion” takes place on Wednesday 14 September 2022, at 10.30, in the Networking Area of Filo in Allianz MiCo-Milan (via Gattamelata 5).
An increasingly effective internalization is one of the objectives that Filo has been pursuing for many years. And it is for this reason that the Exhibition of Yarns and Fibers has started, maintained and strengthened over the years a fruitful collaboration with Agenzia ICE – the Italian Trade&Investment Agency.
ICA Yarns, an Albini Group company specialized in the production of high-end yarns made from natural, noble and sustainable fibers, presents at the 58th edition of Filo the novelties of its Spring/Summer 2024 collection.
