Altaroma’s founding philosophy was based not only on creating an international stage but also on building an ideal bridge between tradition and contemporary living. In 1988, several Roman institutions joined forces to create Agenzia per la Moda spa. In 2002, it was transformed into a Share-holding consortium thanks to the commitment of the Chamber of Commerce, the Municipality of Rome and the Regione Lazio. In 2009, these three partners were also joined by the Provincia which thus became a member of Altaroma’s corporate team.
