Going Digital:
A New School Year with Pirelli Foundation Educational

The new Pirelli Foundation Educational programme for the coming school year is all set to become entirely digital. Two live-streamed meetings for teachers on Tuesday 22 and Thursday 24 September will give a detailed introduction to the courses for primary and secondary schools with an explanation of the new forms of access and programming. Since 2013, the courses have been focusing on issues related to Pirelli’s business culture and have usually been held at the headquarters of the Pirelli Foundation but this year they have been transformed and, for the first time, they will take place entirely online, thus reaching out to schools across Italy. In the second part of the presentation, participants will be able to go on a virtual guided tour of the Historical Archive and exhibition spaces of the Pirelli Foundation to discover the great wealth of the company’s historical and artistic heritage.

Ever since the spring, Pirelli Foundation Educational has been assisting teachers in distance learning by providing in-depth digital content that can be downloaded from the site. From September, interaction with school classes will be even closer, with several live events, and activities to be carried out independently. This will involve the use of e-learning content based on the materials in our Historical Archive (photographs, documents, audio-visuals, and vintage advertising materials), together with moments of discussion and debate with the students about the work they have carried out.

Primary schools in particular will be able to enter into the world of inventors and inventions, finding out about the relationship between artists and the factory, and listening to stories from leading authors.

Lower secondary schools will have the opportunity to learn about the greatest innovations introduced by Pirelli in almost a century and a half of history, with articles written by great twentieth-century writers for Pirelli magazine, and they will learn about the transformation of the urban territory of Milan.

Lastly, upper secondary schools will find out about the history of a multinational company and today’s digital factory, from the development of its advertising through to the modern concept of sustainable mobility.

To take part in the online presentations of the new programme, please write to scuole@fondazionepirelli.org, giving your name and surname, main areas of interest, and the name of your educational institution.

Full information about the project will be published in the area of the website devoted to education.
