Salvatore Pennetta interviewed on RAI 3
The experience of an entrepreneur proudly Made in Italy
During the episode of Report strong>, a popular tv program hosted by journalist Milena Gabanelli on RAI 3, dedicated to the fashion industry and the production of garments outside the Italian territory, Salvatore Pennetta is interviewed to tell his experience about Made in Italy strong> and the difficulties experienced when a well-known brand international decided to "save" entrusting the production of garments to foreign industries undergoing minor quality checks (and about the treatment of animals in plucking) and less "costly" than Italian.
For the first time a public television succeeds in providing documentary evidence of the illegal live-plucking practiced on live geese in Hungary. The program reports this criminal, cruel practice which is common in the European Union. The UE is considered as the first responsible for the lack of supervision and for having a set of regulations which enables the easy “recycle” of illegal dawn.
Sabrina Giannini’s inquiry starts with the filling of the trendy down jackets, Moncler, analyzing every passage: from the fazone (the term implies the artisan and sartorial phases: from the fabrics’ cutting, to the sewing of all the item parts, including the filling of the dawn’s bags) to the outsourcing, especially in East Europe (but even in Armenia). She highlights the large saving margins which are incomprehensible for a product defined as “luxury” and that got rid of the Southern Italy artisans to save just a dozen Euros on the tailoring.
It is a long range inquiry (even geographical) on the choices of some fashion brands that move the production in countries not even recognized by the UN in order to save a handful of Euros on products sold at very high prices in the boutiques. We’re speaking about Transnistria, the Republic founded on the Soviet and self proclaimed independent from Moldova. Here, according to observers’ reports, human and workers’ rights are not respected.
