I attended Pitti Filati at the new location of Stazione Leopolda for the first time, and I was pleasantly surprised. A truly creative edition, in which nothing was lacking! The fair is a unique event in the world and an unmissable opportunity to meet all the operators in the sector: spinning mills, knitting manufacturers, and embroidery specialists.

This is the first time we have been back at the fair since the pandemic broke out and we are shocked by its positive turnout. It's great to be here! Summer collections in the yarn world are sometimes less innovative, but we were surprised by the novelties companies presented: recycled, printed, sustainable yarns, each collection has its own uniqueness and the trends are really clear and well developed.

Can I say that the Stazione Leopolda location is even more functional? More structured, it allows a better visit to the event. Pitti Filati marks the beginning of the season and this edition was really fresh and stimulating. It was important to meet in person again: I think it is possible for more things to happen if we see each other.

I found this edition of Pitti Filati very functional in terms of space and the atmosphere was very nice. The fair is an important event because it allows me to gain a wide overview very quickly. I noticed a great deal of attention to sustainability and really liked the installation of the students of the CKD Master, a really nice introduction!

An essential and very concentrated edition. The fair is an unmissable event in my calendar because it offers me the opportunity to see the trends and various interpretations by companies in their entirety. An overview that stimulates my experiential memory: I would be lost if I didn't come to Pitti!

Pitti Filati is not the classic business fair: the atmosphere is pleasant, relaxed, despite the excellent turnout of visitors, the set-up is well-kept and its size is perfect. It’s the knitwear event: the whole community in the knitwear world is here!

Pitti Filati? It looks like an art gallery! Surely a fair much more stimulating from an aesthetic point of view than other events in the sector. It was a wonderful experience and an opportunity to connect with those who work with yarns directly, learning many aspects about processes and production. The Spazio Ricerca research area was beautiful.
