It was above all fundamental that we meet people who share our corporate culture and our values related to technology and sustainability. Stefano Casini from S.M.T. represents what we believe in. This company is based on the values of technological innovation combined with tradition and craftsmanship, which are then declined in the engineering and production of luxury knitwear for the most important fashion houses.
