“Italy has been the biggest socks producer in the world, however throughout the years the competition of emerging countries has become stronger, and fewer are the companies still able to produce in Italy. These businesses are mainly located in theMantova and Brescia productive districts (District N.6 Castel Goffredo – Textile – Hosiery).
Boggiani Renato srl Company is exactly located in the Productive District N.6. The industrial history of the area goes back to 1925 when CalzificioNoemi, the first hosiery production company was founded. They produced cotton stockings, then implemented with silk hosiery. Its shutdown in the late Fifties gave brith to a myriad of small companies specializing in this product”.
