The City is striving to relaunch its textile and clothing sector, heavily hidden by the economic crisis. The City has signed a memorandum of understanding with all the relevant stakeholders at this purpose, identifying two main directions: the stimulus to the creative and cultural industries related to its fashion industry and the sustainability of the sector by orienting R&D activities towards it. These objectives are to be achieved also through the participation of the City in EU funded projects, which are a fundamental driver to exchange knowledge for the benefit of the SMEs.
