Welcome from the President

Milano Unica 38th edition

I would like to thank you warmly for your unfailing contribution to the success of Milano Unica. 


The trade show has been steadily growing in terms of the quality of the proposals, services offered, and innovation. You all have the credit for this success, because you have demonstrated – edition after edition - your determination and strength, your endless quest for creativity, and your contribution to team up. 


In this respect, I also want to thank - on behalf of all - the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the International Trade Agency - ITA for the promotion of Italian businesses abroad and the development of communication activities.


In addition to the many areas of the trade show, the growing space dedicated to womenswear collections and the MU Tendenze Sostenibilità project, constantly outlining the values, and evolving more and more at the service of companies, the 38th edition of Milano Unica will feature insights and content projects with a focus on creativity and high quality. The latter have always been key characteristics of the trade show of high-end textiles


Milano Unica has always paid great attention to education, inclusivity among the new generations, and the development of the industry. As customary, the February edition dedicates the Back to School event to fashion school students with Sabato De Sarno, Gucci’s Creative Director, interviewed by Emanuele Farneti, Director of D, Door, DLui and Deputy Editor of La Repubblica. Sabato De Sarno will share his story and path to success.


The opening ceremony will address the theme of Artificial Intelligence in the B2B context for the textile and accessories industry, confirming Milano Unica's ongoing commitment to offering a privileged observatory on the most current issues for the industry.


Thank you and see you soon!



Alessandro Barberis Canonico

President of Milano Unica
