Pitti Immagine Filati is the main international event for the knitting yarn industry, a research lab and an observatory on global lifestyle trends.
Pitti Filati presents world-scale excellence in yarns to its audience of international buyers and designers from the biggest names in fashion who come to Florence looking for creative inspiration, in a unique atmosphere offering a new, original entertaining take on the many ways that fashion, art, sport, and design come together.
Pitti Filati is hosted by Pitti Immagine the Italian company devoted to promoting the fashion industry worldwide. From the top down, its motivated staff fully believes in the concept of the modern trade fair as an event that is in a constant state of renewal and development – indeed Pitti Immagine has recently expanded its scope to include other industries such as food and fragrance. According to Pitti Immagine, the trade fair must create clear and stimulating relationships involving the exhibitors, their collections and the buyers and the public, by offering information, and knowledge.
