is culture

Today's factory has a new look and a new culture. And it also needs new representations.

Settimo torinese towards an industrial

Designing a beautiful factory and bringing light and quality to life

When places
ispire music

Paraphrasing Friedrich Nietzsche, we could say that every place should have its “own” music and should be able to inspire or host it. Now the factory surrounded by cherry trees in Settimo Torinese has its own music.
Salvatore Accardo

A creative and cultural

We believe that both the past and present of Pirelli – a great Italian multinational – are influenced by crossroads of scientific culture and the humanities. Indeed, this has influenced research, production, and innovation on a daily basis in the workplace to respond to market demands and to consumers which can be interpreted as an economic and social transformation.
