The 81st edition of Pitti Immagine Bimbo (Florence, 25-27 June 2015) ended last Saturday. More than 10.000 visitors (5.600 international buyers) came to Florence to view the new collections for spring | summer 2016. The figures for Italy remained stable, reflecting the positive signs already registered for domestic consumption which has become more dynamic in recent months. According to Raffaello Napoleone, CEO of Pitti Immagine: “The Italian market has managed to hold steady and this is undoubtedly a comforting sign after several seasons in which the decrease in domestic consumption has been evident”.
“THAT’S PITTICOLOR” was the title-theme of the fair and was revolved around color and colors, the colors in which we are constantly immersed, the colors that are all around us, that we wear, that are inside us and in front of our eyes.

It was a special event dedicated to its exhibitors, top buyers and the international press on Friday 26 June, at 8.30 p.m., in the beautiful setting of Villa Le Corti in San Casciano Val di Pesa.
