the Association of Tailors of Naples is born

Naples, cross and delight, delight and love. Naples, a marvelous land, a mistreated land, a (often) forgotten land. Land that always rises from its ashes: the strength of Naples returns to reveal itself through one of its noblest arts, asNeapolitan sartorial excellence. In which we are investing and for which we are (re)starting to team up, in a historic moment (among other things) of maximum post-pandemic restart for local and national economies. Already born last January, the Mani di Napoli association officially presented its program and mission: with 26 artisan realities already associated, it aims to enhance the small Neapolitan “shops” and their excellent work in favor of Made in Italy.

To talk about haute couture is to talk about the history of Naples – pointed out Gaetano Manfredi, Mayor of Naples, in the statement reported by pambianconews.com. – Preserving our know-how means preserving our identity. At the base of the association there is a cultural and economic value, just think of how exponential tourism changes the quality and quantity of visitors. At the same time, it is right to invest in training, to attract young people to professions that amplify the manual tradition by also investing in digital innovation”. Expertisetradition and generational change: three key words in the intervention of the mayor of Naples, which the association already has in mind (and in the heart) to ensure the sustainability of its mission.
