Assuming the tread is coming off the casing after using the tire on a trainer, but there’s no image. You could definitely glue the tread back in place of you wanted.

Don't risk it. Maybe contact vittoria to see if there's a chance for warranty replacement? Unless you ran it on a trainer...

Superglue probably not the best thing to use, unless it's the flexible stuff.

I've had 2 do this to me, with both replaced under warranty. I've kept the 2 as spares and superglued the tread back down, only small part about and inch long. No problems at all!

Had the tread come unstuck on older Open Paves, I used vucanizing fluid to stick it back on. Still riding the tires.

If you use the flexible type, yes.

The classic hard type can cut your casing.
