Confindustria Moda, through a letter signed by President Claudio Marenzi representing 50 of the most important Italian companies including Calzedonia, Herno, Moncler, Roberto Cavalli, Ferragamo, Trussardi and Valentino, writes to the landlords of buildings, stores and offices dedicated to textile companies, fashion and accessory to invite them to suspend the fee payment request. The fear, unfortunately concrete and supported by the daily news, is that the reopening after coronavirus will be postponed after the deadline of April 3 currently in force and that “consequently the companies will continue not to sell, however having to pay the entire rent”, which has become in the light of these circumstances, excessively expensive and no longer sustainable until normal commercial, tourist and residential flows have completely recovered “. Confindustria Moda includes the companies associated with the Italian Fashion System (SMI), Assocalzaturifici, Assopellettieri, the Italian Fur Association (AIP), the National Optical Manufacturers Association (Anfao), Federorafi and the National Union of the Tanning Industry (Unic) and represents approximately 66 thousand Made in Italy companies in Italy, which generate a turnover of 95.5 billion euros and employ over 580 thousand workers.
