Artisanship but also innovation, industrial manufacturing but also widespread entrepreneurship, cutting-edge technical schools, and universities, but also knowledge handed down for generations: from this happy and unique combination formed over the centuries, a district and a supply chain created textiles that are the reliable and efficient reference point for those who make fashion and clothing all over the world
