The dates for Pitti Immagine Uomo in January 2014
The 85th edition of Pitti Immagine Uomo will be held at the Fortezza da Basso in Florence from 7 – 10 January 2014. This is the final decision taken by the top management of Pitti Immagine given the impossibility of changing the international calendar that had already been scheduled.
“We worked until literally the last minute”, says Gaetano Marzotto, president of Pitti Immagine, “to confirm the normal postponement of the opening of Pitti Uomo by one week when the dates are particularly close to the New Year celebrations, but this was not possible for 2014. However, we already have an understanding with the organizers of the men’s catwalk shows in Milan and Paris to schedule the usual postponement from January 2015 onwards, so that the series of international winter events can return to its natural course. With regard to January 2014”, continues Gaetano Marzotto, “we will try once again to reason with the organizers in London in order to find a practical and principled solution to the problem of overlapping that, albeit only partial, means that buyers and journalists do not receive the best possible service”.
The next summer edition of the fair, Pitti Immagine Uomo 84, will be held, as already announced, from 18 – 21 June 2013.
