The Magician of Knitwear
Her innovative artisan techniques in knitting have made Albertina Giubbolini the Chanel of Italian knitwear.
Coming to the capital from Tuscany, she opened her atelier in 1952 and began creating knitted outerwear and suits with vibrant colours, her distinctive trademark. Her garments are today created exclusively on request. It is not by chance that the Metropolitan Museum in New York holds twelve of her models, considered as masterpieces of creativity and innovation.
