Christmases of Years Past. A Holiday to Share

For all Pirelli employees, Christmas is a time for sharing and for a tradition that is upheld every year, with festive celebrations in the world of Pirelli, with greetings exchanged before the Christmas holidays, with a little gift to be placed under the tree.

In 2017 Pirelli once again opened its doors to celebrate its wintertime Family Day, a special Christmas treat when we accompanied our colleagues and their families on a visit to discover the historical places of our Headquarters, such as the Cooling Tower and the Bicocca degli Arcimboldi. The splendid fifteenth-century villa was decorated for the occasion, and hosted a reading by a professional actor who recited some Christmas-themed excerpts from Pirelli magazine.

Pirelli magazine was again the star for Christmas 2018 with Le parole dalla fabbrica. Il Natale nelle “grandi firme”, and again in 2019, with the release of our book Industrial Humanism, an anthology devoted to this extraordinary publication. On both occasions we welcomed our colleagues to a festively decorated Foundation with an exhibition showing the original issues of the magazine devoted to the theme of Christmas. So, how many covers did the Pirelli periodical Fatti e Notizie devote to Christmas? How many times did the December issue open with pictures of a smiling Father Christmas, with trees decked out for the festivities, with foam rubber toys for the little ones? As many as the various other house organs of the Pirelli Group have published around the world: the ceramic cribs in front of the Sagrada Familia on the cover of the Spanish Hechos y Noticias, the shooting stars on the Brazilian Noticias Pirelli, the children on the Argentine Pàginas Pirelli, Father Christmas driving through the sky in a car designed by Riccardo Manzi, bringing gifts, on the cover of the Greek Ta Nea tis Pirelli Hellas.

Even from afar, in this very particular year, all we can do now is wish you a very Merry Christmas!
