In the Sixties, the first, hard-won turning-point: Santo Stefano moved to Via Arezzo, where the firm's premises increased quickly in size, the workers in number and the orders in quantity. But the decisive change came only in the Seventies: in a processing market dominated by wool, Santo Stefano turned its efforts to flax, viscose, cotton and silk, as well, and began treating all these fibers with revolutionary new processes, that were absolutely innovative for the italian and European markets.

The material was "sanded", "washed", "aged" and transformed to obtain maximum wearability and at the same time a natural, comfortable elegant look that is a styling mark of all the Santo Stefano products. And thus, on the strength of an enviable record and the recently-implemented restructuring, the firm took on its present-day configuration, that of an avant-garde company as form and substance without forget those values from which it arose.
