GRANDATE, Como — Under the aegis of a fragmented government and a shrinking fashion industry, the machines of the Taroni silk factory continue to churn out the swathes of duchesse, taffeta and faille preferred by Valentino, Fendi, Lanvin and the princesses of Europe.
Even for vanguard silk makers like Taroni, increasing energy costs, taxes and a grim domestic economic outlook for Italy make it difficult to grow.
