“Como is silk: the golden thread that weaves culture and creativity”, focuses on the Traditional and Creative Knowledge of Como’s silk production system. Silk was invented millennia ago in China; on its travels westward, it landed in Como. And when that journey from the East was interrupted due to historical and political events, it was Como that re-established the silk thread and became the European silk hub and weaving selling the fabrics that supplied the colorful markets of Europe’s main capitals, creating new yarns, new designs and always anticipating and interpreting the tastes of fashion of all times.
