Sauro Guerri, vice president of the Italian Wool Trade Association, led the Filo audience through the problems and successes of a complex manufacturing process, underlining how “in the search for greater sustainability, it is crucial to act sensibly and not dismantle century-old traditions and methods, without having first thought of how to replace them”.
