Italy - Assopellettieri opens new HQ in Florence

Italian leather goods association Assopellettieri has opened a new Tuscan headquarters in Florence. By ILM.

In addition to its Milan office, the new headquarters will allow the association to work closer with the 2,300 leather goods companies in Tuscany.

Located within the Manifattura Tabacchi Firenze complex, which is a historic cigar factory abandoned in 2001 and has been refurbished to include concept stores, ateliers, co-working spaces and fashion hubs.

Assopellettieri President Claudia Sequi said: “We have imagined this headquarters as a home for associates, a place where they can find discussion and new solutions.

“In fact, the idea is to draw up a calendar of events and organise periodic meetings between Tuscan associates. Specialised consultants will be available to help on specific issues, such as sustainability for example, and adjustments to the new regulations.”
