This new site, a renovation of an existing one, spans over 7,000 square meters and includes a range of manufacturing areas, offices, and warehouses.
The building expresses the Maison’s dualism in combining artisanal savoir-faire and handcrafting with technological transformation, always with an eye towards environmental sustainability. An impressive and innovative corrugated-aluminium façade with a leather-like wave effect gives to the building a modern and minimal flair where the lines between indoor and outdoor are blurred through ribbon windows, large see-throughs, and open spaces, harmoniously integrated into the natural conformation of the landscape.
Designed to be as environmentally neutral as possible, the building will make its maximum use of natural daylight with part of the electricity generated from solar panels with plenty of sunlight filtering through large glass walls and skylights together with the use of glass panels as internal partitions to ensure visual continuity between all the departments.
This new pole will also allow us to have a positive impact on the local community and future generations thanks to the first edition of the FENDI Shoes Master Class launched in collaboration with the State Professional Institute for Industry and Crafts ‘Ostilio Ricci’ in Fermo. The program aims to train a new generation of specialised artisans, passing down the values of craftsmanship and work with precision, manual skills, and creativity.
FENDI also kicked off ‘Adopt a School’, an educational project in collaboration with Altagamma and the ‘Ostilio Ricci’ Institute, also located in Fermo. The ultimate goal of the project is to fight unemployment and protect Italian manufacturing skills by connecting the luxury industry, including the fashion, design, hospitality, and automotive sectors with Italian schools, mainly, technical and scientific institutes.
