With the “Insieme” (Together) event, totally dedicated to the employees, Vitale Barberis Canonico wanted to celebrate its 360th anniversary in the family textile business. The historicity of the company is confirmed by the “quinternetto delle taglie» (list of sizes) dating back to 1663, which testifies to the wool mill activities of the Barberis Canonico family and describes how Ajmo Barbero supplied the Duke of Savoy with “saia grisa” (grey wool).

The event took place on Saturday 9th September in the Pray facilities, in the attractive factory buildings from the mid-1800s which were acquired by Vitale Barberis Canonico in 2001. The two large halls, which weren’t being used before, were completely renovated to shortly house a new twisting department, in confirmation of how the company continues to invest in the constant improvement service level offered to its international clientele. In a relaxed, convivial atmosphere, the evening was punctuated by different actions such as the group photo, the dinner, and the dancing.
