Four pictures of the Pirelli Industrial Centre in Settimo Torinese: our tribute to Peter Lindbergh, the great German photographer who died today at the age of 74. Taken from our book Il canto della fabbrica (Mondadori 2018), the images illustrate Lindbergh’s work in the Settimo factory for the project that led to the creation of the 2017 Pirelli Calendar. The striking black-and-white shot was first shown in the exhibition Pirelli in 100 Pictures: Beauty, Innovation, Manufacturing, curated by the Foundation and opened in January 2017 at the Biblioteca Archimede in Settimo Torinese. The show told the story of more than 140 years of the history of Pirelli in many of its very diverse aspects.
