Silvio Albini, Albini Group head and ex-president Milano Unica dies

Italian entrepreneur Silvio Albini, 61, was found dead unexpectedly in his house in Bergamo. His death was probably due to a stroke. Albini managed Cotonoficio Albini — the fine quality shirting manufacturing company that employs over 1,400 people and registers over €147 million in annual sales.

His company, founded in 1876, celebrated its 140thanniversary in 2016 and is led today by the fifth generation of his family.

The entrepreneur,who had been president of the Italian textile show Milano Unica and vice president of the Bergamo association of entrepreneurs, strongly believed in the importance of promoting and supporting Made in Italy products.

He had recently started a series of initiatives targeted at expanding his group’s presence in the smart casual segment through its own Albiate 1830 company and a collaboration project started with Candiani Denim designed by Matias Sandoval.
