Robots and Innovation at Pirelli
Distance Learning
for Lower Secondary Schools

The second course put on by Fondazione Pirelli Educational to assist teachers in improving their distance learning activities uses audio, video, films, and readings to illustrate the most important innovations introduced by Pirelli in the world of science and technology, with a look at digital robotics and the transformation of production processes.

The content, designed for lower secondary school students, follows the evolution of innovation that has swept through the products and processes of the major industrial concern that is Pirelli. It ranges from the founding of the company in 1872 through to the very latest tyres, which are equipped with a sensor to make them “smart”, and to the most modern production systems of Industry 4.0. The course clearly illustrates the powerful bond that unites the world of scientific and technical innovation and humanistic culture – and music in particular.

The school subjects involved in this course are Science, Technology, and Music, and teachers can choose whether to make use of all the elements in the course or only one or more of them, to fit their course times and study plans.

The content is structured as follows:

Robots and Innovation at Pirelli

A video presentation that tells the story of the main technological innovations introduced by Pirelli in almost 150 years of history. From Ercole, the company’s first car tyre in 1901, to the “smart” tyre of today.

The Art of Making Tyres

A video that examines the role of creativity in different areas – an extract from the meeting with students entitled Bach: Music and Science in the Factory organised in 2019 in the Pirelli auditorium in Milan, and a presentation of the Pirelli Cyber Car tyre.

Analysis

Materials for an in-depth examination of robotics and coding. They include videos that explain how coding works and how a robot moves, with recommended reading and an online programming course.

Il Canto della Fabbrica

Il Canto della Fabbrica, a composition inspired by the rhythms and sounds of the Pirelli Industrial Centre in Settimo Torinese, and performed in the factory itself in 2017 by the Orchestra da Camera Italiana conducted by Maestro Salvatore Accardo, gave insight into the link between manufacturing and culture.

Il Canto della Fabbrica 

A site devoted to the project with Maestro Salvatore Accardo and Maestro Francesco Fiore in the “factory in the cherry orchard”.

 

VISIT TO THE FOUNDATION

The course ends with the fondazionepirelliexperience virtual tour, a visit to the Pirelli Foundation.

The young people are invited to search the different rooms: the video on Innovation with the 8 keywords at the entrance to the Foundation, the Scientific and Technical Library, with over 16,000 volumes, and Scientific Research by Renato Guttuso, which is a symbol of Pirelli’s long history of research and development, together with its “twin” mosaic.
