BIELLA, Italy — February 24, 2021 — “Filo continues to operate and never stops. We will return to normal soon, we will meet at the fair and experience first-hand the know-how of Filo’s spinners”: these are the words chosen by Paolo Monfermoso, general manager of Filo, to start “Con le mani”, a series of meetings in view of the 56th edition of the Salone, to be held on the 29th and 30th of September 2021 at MiCo in Milan.
“Con le mani – Episode I” is available on the Filo website (www.filo.it), on the Facebook page and on the Twitter account of the Salon starting from February 24, 2021, that is from the day on which the 55th edition of Filo should have been opened, if not cancelled for the well-known reasons.
However, Filo wanted to send a message of confidence to its exhibitors and visitors.
In his speech, Mr. Monfermoso also announced the initiatives that Filo intends to undertake on the way to the 56th edition in September. The most significant is the series of interviews with some important testimonials from the textile world, who have always been close to Filo in their respective roles. With them, Filo will address relevant issues: internalization, supply chain, sustainability, human capital.
The FilonewsLetter is also renewed, with greater spaces reserved to the exhibitors and a totally new section: “Pronto? Filo!”. Curated by Gianni Bologna, creativity and style manager of Filo, “Pronto? Filo!” proposes short flash interventions with suggestions on types of yarns and fabrics aimed particularly at the short-term market.
