Pitti Uomo Postponed Due To COVID-19
FLORENCE, ITALY — We could now add Pitti Uomo to the long lists of fashion shows and events being either canceled or postponed due to the worldwide spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
Pitti Immagine Uomo is officially postponed until September 2–4, 2020.
Pitti Uomo will still be held in Florence’s Fortezza da Basso. A statement released explained the decision to postpone further, “The Board of Directors of Pitti Immagine, chaired by Claudio Marenzi, met today by video conference. On the agenda were the decisions to be taken regarding the calendar of the fairs scheduled for the 2020 summer season.”
It continues, “Considering the evolution of the health emergency in Italy and around the world and in the light of the concrete prospects of an extension to the restrictive measures concerning production and commercial activities and the movement of people, the BoD discussed and deliberated the proposals presented by the CEO Raffaello Napoleone who, together with the heads of the various company departments, had carried out a broad survey of the opinions received from exhibitors, buyers, agents and other members of the trade over the past few weeks.”
