MILAN — Benetton Group closed a year of transition with a 10 percent drop in sales, which actually was a pivotal part of establishing the foundation for future growth.
Chief executive officer Biagio Chiarolanza on Tuesday presented the first steps in the changes ahead with the official unveiling of the new United Colors of Benetton concept store at the historical and central unit in Milan’s Piazza Duomo, overlooking the Gothic cathedral. “This concept we called ‘On Canvas’ is fundamental; it was developed in-house and it’s like a theater [stage] for the brand,” said Chiarolanza, noting that Benetton will now start to increase its focus on the women’s category.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
