Pitti Filati, the key international fair for the world of yarns and knitwear, returns to its original location at the Fortezza Da Basso with its 91st edition. After having staged two editions at the Stazione Leopolda, the fair reclaims its initial dimension, from June 29 until July 1, 2022, with the collections of the most important Italian and international yarn manufacturers.

The trends of tomorrow will be presented in the Spazio Ricerca with special installations by Angelo Figus and Nicola Miller, along with the new knitwear proposals of Knitclub and the special Fashion at Work and CustomEasy areas. In the Fashion at Work area, D-house by Dyloan will present "3D Is The Future", a concept that combines traditional designs with innovative and responsible materials with a focus on a 3d printing. Instead, the CustomEasy project returns with its fourth edition and will be staged on the Lower Level of the Main Pavilion under the creative guidance of Maurizio Brocchetto with a layout by Alessandro Moradei. In this space, companies will also have an opportunity to present their customization work applied to the world of luxury knitwear through the dummies displayed in their stands.

All the yarn trends for next fall/winter 2023-2024 will be showcased with the help of the total of 114 brands of which 18 from abroad (United Kingdom, Japan, Turkey, Romania, Peru, China - Hong Kong, Ireland, South Africa, New Zealand).

The fair is provided by MAECI-The Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the Agenzia ICE-Italian Foreign Trade Promotion and Internationalization Agency, together with UniCredit as main partner.
The theme of Pitti Filati is Pitti Island, as for all other summer fairs of Pitti Immagine.

At Pitti Filati 91, on the ground floor of the Central Pavilion, Fondazione Pitti Discovery in collaboration with the Centro per l’arte contemporanea Luigi Pecci presents the special installation "Wiild Life Wild Heat" by the artist Maurizio Vetrugno, which opens on 29 June. The work of Maurizio Vetrugno starts with the selection of individual elements (objects, images, signs, artworks) that are celebrated for their beauty and then transforms them according to a contemporary aesthetic.

Indigo Eden will also make its debut at Pitti Filati 91. It's a special capsule collection created by Alessio Berto, proprietor of the pattern-making firm, The Tailor Pattern Support, inspired by primitive cultures which are projected into the future, a better future, with greater care taken in the manufacturing processes and the recycling of materials for garments that last longer in time and space.
