Welcome to the leather space
We open this issue with the slogan that the UNIC hopes will become the catchphrase for its fair.
We also believe it can become a symbol of the new path that the Italian Association of Tanners has undertaken thanks to the efforts of the new Executive Committee guided by Gianni Russo, as President, and Fulvia Bacchi, as director.
A more open and collaborative Leather Space, willing to listen to its members, to talk to the press and institutions, and to think of an innovative future for the tanning industry.
We leave it up to Gianni Russo to better express the concept, «To deal will all the themes that lie ahead, we must invest in innovation.
The rejection of modernity does not belong to us, as demonstrated by the investments in research and development made by our companies. We are already preparing the fourth evolutionary phase. After mechanisation, industrialisation, and automation, there is digitalisation. We must all reach this goal, and soon.
It will be important to be flexible and fast in responding to changes. This process will lead to new technological tools, but also and above all, to organisational tools aimed at bringing companies closer to customers and markets.
Our industries and our association must grow together: the subsequent renewal will be based on new demands imposed by the market.
“There are people who look at things the way they are, and ask why? I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?” I think this quote by Robert Kennedy is significant for the innovation process that we are undertaking».
