Italian government creates a commission to make of fashion a cultural heritage



Italy continues to make of fashion a matter of State. The Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities led by Alberto Bonisoli has been the first to step forward regarding this issue through the creation of a study commission of public policies in favour of Italian fashion.


The task force will have to investigate which measures must be taken to make of fashion an Italian cultural heritage. The commission is presided by Barbara Trebitsch, responsible of academic curricula at Accademia di Costume e Moda di Roma, and counts amongst its members with dignitaries from academic, publishing and entrepreneurial ambits, according to Pambianco News.





The commission’s members, which will not receive an economic compensation for their work, will evaluate different elements that could determine this economic sector’s typical characteristics. It is estimated that conclusions will be presented next 30th of May.


The minister Bonisoli already commented last October that the cabinet wanted to create a commission to protect fashion as one of the country’s cultural heritages. From the conclusions extracted by the task force, there will be traced some guidelines.

For the time being, the first step taken by the Italian Executive to embrace fashion has been carried out in collaboration with the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities. It is still unclear what the next aids for the promotion of the sector coming from the Ministry of Economic Development will be like, as the cabinet has not expressed its opinion yet.
