Workers. The history and future of Pirelli in the faces of those who make it

12 September 2010.

One cannot speak of the factory, of industry in general, without speaking of its main protagonists – workers, engineers, managers, researchers. People who, in their very faces, recount the culture of machinery. A culture that changes over time, but which maintains its sense of community.

The factory has a soul which we have sought to capture in the faces of its protagonists. Expressions of different lifestyles and different relationships.
Inaugurated on 12 September, the photography exhibit “Workers” features seventy photos that tell of Pirelli’s industrial adventure – its history and its future – through the men and women who dedicated their knowledge, their energy and their skill to the company each and every day. And many of these men and women have attended the event itself. They have seen themselves in a shot taken at work, and some were moved to discover an unfamiliar look or expression. Photos that tell the stories of people and their lives. Some have hand that are still dirty with grease; others with eyes that show the fatigue of a life spent in the factory; still others smile or shed a tear. But they are all proud, their faces showing the pride of a job well done.
Also in attendance were Antonello Ghisaura, councillor responsible for Sports and Culture for the City of Settimo Torino, and representatives of Pirelli’s senior management, including Alberto Pirelli, Gustavo Bracco, Giovanni Pomati and Antonio Calabrò.
