Also for this edition, the organizers have chosen a weekday to allow those working in the sector to participate. “This event – UNPAC specifies on its website – is essential to reconnect ties with the market and create new opportunities, safely. Participants will be able to check the news on-site and join the technical discussions; in addition to fashion items, there will also be displayed leathers made with sustainable technologies, in line with current regulations and market demands. The event will also showcase the trends proposal 2022 / 2023 developed by Pier Francesco Pitasi.
PROSSIMAPELLE interprets the artistic soul of the material to show the art of our know-how, becoming a material and visionary Art Exhibition, projected into the digital age. Digital tools will be used for the first time, with films that project the event beyond the physical boundary.”
