Wanny Bio

Wanny Di Filippo was born in 1945 in Adria, in northen Italy. He came into the world on February 14th, but the bombardments of World War II prevented his grandmother from going to the town hall to register his birth. A farmer friend ended up going a few days later but gave the wrong date which is why the official registers have it down as the 16th.


Designed by Wanny Di Filippo in 1973 to embody his desire to blend aesthetic simplicity, lightness, functional flexibility and space-saving intelligence, Caramella is the first of Il Bisonte’s convertible bags.
