La storia di Pirelli è densa di innovazioni che hanno cambiato il nostro modo di comunicare, vivere e viaggiare. Per ripercorrere questa storia, lunga quasi 150 anni, la Fondazione propone una settimana di attività digitali gratuite dedicate a visitatori di ogni età. Il nostro team condurrà queste esperienze virtuali, alla scoperta di un grande patrimonio di idee, arte, scienza “con la P maiuscola”.
Pirelli’s history is packed with new technologies and research that have changed the way we communicate, live, and travel. To retrace this almost 150-year-long history, the Foundation is putting on a week of free digital activities for visitors of all ages. Our team will guide you on this virtual experience, opening up a vast heritage of ideas, art, and science. All “with a capital P”.
Breakfast with the Inventors – online campus from 22 to 26 June, 10 a.m.
Every morning, a group of ten children aged from 6 to 8 will be able to take part in a virtual journey that will give them a close-up look at the stories of great inventors and find out how a revolutionary new idea is created. From the evolution of the wheel and bicycles, to foam rubber and photography: games, stories, and creative activities will show the children how to adopt a critical approach to the objects they have around them, helping them become inventors for a day.
Duration: about 60 minutes
Innovation in Art and Science – virtual guided tours, 6 p.m.
In the afternoon, the virtual tour of the Foundation will open the drawers and cabinets of the Historical Archive, revealing artistic prints from the early twentieth century, tyres that have won the most amazing races, toys designed by Bruno Munari, and much more besides. You will be plunged into a truly immersive experience in the spaces of the Foundation and in the Advertising with a Capital P exhibition, where you will find out about Pirelli’s many breakthroughs also in the development of visual communication.
