An exhibition that wants to start afresh to meet the needs of both the Italian and international market, but on a human scale, to which the Cavaniglia pavilion will be reserved. 3,300 square meters of strong allure and suggestion with the perimeter walls of the sixteenth-century ‘Medici’ monument in sight on one side of the building.

The intent is to show in all its vitality and breadth of expressions Italian talent and craftsmanship of Italian companies in the sector, which today more than ever we need to revive the Italian economy. With the made in Italy, the Italian product is perceived not only as a product of excellence and quality but also as a symbol of a set of traditional values without equal in the rest of the world. The comparison with foreign countries is open through an invitation to international companies.
The ambition is to bring back to Florence the reference fair on a national scale for textiles declined across all sectors. Carlo Amadori is the sole director of Acropoli, partner of Firenze Fiera in the design and marketing of the event, who says: “After having designed 78 events in Italy, from Abitare il Tempo and Tesori dal Tempo di Verona to the art fair of Restoration in Ferrara, up to AbitaMi, in September 2011 in conjunction with Macef and again for Fiera Milano, having collaborated with HOMI – I realized how much was missing a sector event: the importance of the fabric in Italy meant that I made myself I had to go back to thinking about a single event. The presence of Immagine Italia in this panorama, for the past 13 years, has meant that, together with Firenze Fiera, we returned to focus on a single textile fair, expanding the underwear / underwear theme to include the sectors: Linen, Tablecloths , Curtains, Curtains, Carpets, Textile and Nautical Publishing “.
“This is how Florence Home TexStyle was born – concludes Amadori – the new major event on home textiles that I hope will become the reference point for companies, exhibitors and buyers for the textile world.”
