As part of the prestigious Pitti Immagine portfolio of events, Pitti Immagine Filati boasts a storied history since its inception in 1977 and a place at the top of the yarn and knitting industries not just in Europe, but the rest of the world. This fashion fair explores the research, stylistic and material innovations in the sector and presents the hottest new yarn collections from the very best Italian spinning mills. All this takes place at the historic Fortezza da Basso. The former fortress, once in the possession of Alessandro de' Medici, now fulfils the purpose of a modern venue for various exhibitions and trade shows. It’s only natural that it would be here that Pitti Immagine Filati takes the stage.

The Outlook for 2023

The theme for all Pitti Immagine in June 2023 is ‘Pitti Games,’ which creates a unique and stylish atmosphere. The concept and look are brought to life by Leonardo Corallini and creative director Angelo Figus. For Pitti Filati, the theme of games is interpreted through game of cards as well as card tricks. In the hands of a skilled magician, the movement of the cards evoke the spirit of the thread, structure and knit. It’s truly going to be an unforgettable event and triumph!
