“Thanks to a great teamwork, president Claudio Marenzi managed to have the Italian fashion and textile industry recognized as one of the leading sectors in the national economy because of its turnover and the volumes of its exports,” said Vago, highlighting the leading role of textile small and medium companies in this process. “We have to do another small effort: we need to have the ability, combining the excellent skills of our textile districts, to present ourselves to the world as a unique district able to guarantee the best, most modern and innovative solutions for any request coming from the fashion industry and [beyond].”
