“Italy is the country of “the beauty and well done. Some markets recognize the quality more than others: among these, certainly we count South Korea.

Ours is a vocation to internationalization, this is the meaning of our commitment “- comments Danny D’Alessandro, AIMPES Director General and CEO of MIPEL.

This will be followed by a round table open to buyers and professional press on the theme “Creativity and sustainability in Italian leather goods”. The event is organized in collaboration with UNIC – National Union of the tanning industry – and with Studio Mattori, which was entrusted with the development of trends. Some entrepreneurs holding exhibiting companies will take part in the initiative.
