Today, the 28th of September at 9 am, Filo opens its doors, even though the official inauguration of the 46th edition of the exhibition will be held at 3pm in the Sala Pirelli within Palazzo delle Stelline through a conference organised in partnership with ITA-Italian Trade Agency and Sistema Moda Italia.
The title of the 46th edition inauguration’s conference is ‘Il Filo del design. Design tra tradizione e innovazione’. Among the participants there are Michele Scannavini, president of ITA-Agency, Carlo Piacenza, president of Unione Industriale Biellese, and Gianfranco Di Natale, general manager of Smi-Sistema Moda Italia. Danilo Craveia, responsible for Biella’s historic archives, Marco Bardelle, president of PoinTex, and Mototsugu Amaike, CEO of Amaike Textile Industry will intervene about the development’s strategies and textile companies’ internationalisation.
Paolo Monfermoso, manager of Filo, says that “The choice of organising the conference-inauguration in partnership with ITA-Agency and Sistema Moda Italia reaffirms our total adhesion to the concept that Made in Italy textile chain should face together challenges on international market. On the other hand, we have just concretely demonstrated the research for synergies: Filo’s collaboration with ITA-Agency already has a notable history and produced, and is going to produce, great results”.
