“Our Bach”: Music and Science Together in the Auditorium at the Pirelli Headquarters

An Auditorium packed with over 300 middle- and high-school students from Milan welcomed Maestro Salvatore Accardo, his Orchestra da Camera Italiana, and Pirelli engineers, who all came together on stage to illustrate the close bond between art and science.

The event, Bach: Music and Science in the Factory, opened with a video with the vice chairman of Pirelli, Marco Tronchetti Provera, who talked to the students about the historic dialogue between the company and the world of the arts. He pointed out how liberal culture leads us to reflect on our roots, on our history, on interpersonal relationships, and on how this makes for open minds, far removed from any form of discrimination. Maestro Salvatore Accardo and Maestro Laura Gorna, first violinist of the Orchestra, accompanied the students in listening to the Concerto for Two Violins in D minor, BWV 1043, by Johann Sebastian Bach, an artist who, more than anyone, expressed the relationship with mathematics in his music. The students then heard the executive vice president of Pirelli, Maurizio Boiocchi, who explained how important it is for a company like Pirelli, which strives to be innovative and competitive, to create a continuous synergy between technical skills and creativity. Emanuele Schiavon, a young automation engineer at Pirelli, showed the students how the study of sounds and frequencies is a key element also in tyre manufacturing, in order to obtain high-performance, top-quality products. After a performance of Pablo de Sarasate’s Navarra Op. 33, the young people asked the artists a series of questions about the world of music and musical education. “It was really exciting”, said a student from the Quintino di Vona school, “because they gave us a much better idea about music and musical instruments and they showed us what music means for them and what it might also mean for us in future.”
