On 21 September at the Mudec (the Milan Museum of Cultures) Crafting the Future: Storie di artigianalità e innovazione will open its doors. An exhibition open to the public, with the organization and backing of Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, and support from the Italian Ministry of Economic Development and ICE, the Agency for the foreign promotion and internationalisation of Italian companies. The exhibition, curated by Franca Sozzani, brings together crafts excellence and ‘Made in Italy’ companies investing in the development of new technologies applied to fashion, with particular attention paid to the issue of sustainability. The dialogue between these realities has brought about a series of projects created especially for the occasion and ready to be put on sale. Alongside the products created for the occasion, crafting the future aims to tell the stories of crafts producers and companies through videos and multimedia devices allowing visitors to investigate the themes of the exhibition, exploring the crafts production companies scattered across the national territory in an immersive fashion. It is interesting to underline how along the theme-based exhibition itinerary, a particularly rich panorama of skills and productive capacities spread right across the Italian territory emerges, highlighting specific production districts and a broad range stretching from knitwear to jewellery, from textiles to the most diverse and complex leather-working processes, right through to fine tailoring.
Panetta Tailor with “Camo” and the famous “Lanificio F.lli Cerruti” has created a suit conceived exclusively for the exhibition. We rethink the menswear suite with an essential and modern cut, based on the sketch of the young designer Stefano Ughetti, with a wool fabric with waterproof and stain-proof properties. The suit is composed by three pieces, shirt-jacket, V neck T-shirt and trousers, and represents the right match between the Italian manufacturing tradition, technological research of materials and design creativity.
