History Lessons by Gatto Meo the Cat at the Pirelli Foundation

It’s looking like a busy May for the Pirelli Foundation. Every Thursday and Friday of the the month, the Foundation will host classes from the Giovanni Battista Pirelli elementary school, located in the Bicocca district of Milan.

The purpose of the initiative is to make kids aware of the history of the Bicocca area, its radical transformation from an industrial hub to a residential neighbourhood, and the important role played by the manufacturers who once operated there, and Pirelli in particular . The encounters with the school children are organised in two sessions: a ‘theoretical’ lesson, to be held at the Fondazione, followed by a more ‘experiential’ visit to the HangarBicocca.

During the morning at the Foundation, our young guests will have the opportunity to visit the Bicocca degli Arcimboldi, the cooling tower inside the Pirelli Headquarters, and of course the Historical Archive. Here, the kids will learn about the transformation of the area, the manufacturing process of a tyre (told through the metaphor of baking a cake) and the evolution of Pirelli advertising, using materials from the Archive.

The second part of the day takes place at HangarBicocca, where creative activities will be conducted, such as the realisation of an advertising poster, an updated map of the Bicocca district or the construction of a tyre using salt dough. Lastly, our guests will have lunch in the restaurant Dopolavoro Bicocca restaurant, which will offer them a special menu.

An intense experience that promises to enrich all the participants, and that reminds us all once again of the importance of historical memory and its preservation.

For further information or to find out how to take part in the event, please write to info@fondazionepirelli.org.
