The Textile Museum of Busto Arsizio hosted the exhibition “Le trame di Leonardo” from 9 to 27 November: an exhibition dedicated to the genius from Vinci and his interest in the textile sector. A way for the city of Busto Arsizio to pay homage both to Leonardo Da Vinci, on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of his death, and to one of the most important industrial sectors of our province. The exhibition, created by Fondazione Merlini with the collaboration of the Canceling Foundation and Centrocot and curated by Serena Colombo, recorded a very high turnout, in particular of the schools, demonstrating how Leonardo Da Vinci is always a source of great interest.

Tradition and innovation

Alongside the reproductions of Leonardo Da Vinci’s textile machines, made available by the Canclini Foundation, some of our most avant-garde garments were exhibited: a symbol of how Leonardo’s curiosity and continuous research for innovation still live in the textile sector today.
An example? Our sensorized Smart Jacket for the Fire Brigade combines our tailoring skills with the world of IoT and technology to guarantee the wearer maximum protection and maximum comfort.

An important visit

On November 22, we organized a special visit to the exhibition: our employees were able to visit the exhibition accompanied by President Roberto Grassi, the councilor for culture Manuela Maffioli and the curator Serena Colombo. It was gratifying to feel part of this project and to realize how a real revolution has taken place in our sector since Leonardo, but how they still unite us with the Genius win the continuous desire to innovate and experiment!
