A visit to Sartirana Textile Show can be combined with the pre-ICOC study tour to Lombardia organized by Stefano Ionescu 10-15 September 2014. ‘This is the final call for the Tour to Lombardia which also includes a visit to the Sartirana Textile Show and preludes ICOC 2014, but we can still take a few more people on board’ said Stefano Ionescu to Jozan Magazine for a couple of days ago.
