The Factory through the Eyes of Artists, in Images, Words and Music

A morning at the Pirelli Foundation to discover and examine the close ties between the world of industry and that of culture. More than 50 lower-secondary school students took part today in the “La fabbrica raccontata dagli artisti” (The Factory through the Eyes of Artists) course. The young people had a chance to see, read and listen to the works of great artists who have worked with Pirelli in its almost 150-year history. Photographers, painters, film directors, and writers who, with their different techniques, visions, and points of view have narrated and interpreted the twentieth-century and contemporary factory. From Fulvio Bianconi to Renato Guttuso, Alessandro Mendini to Ugo Mulas, Dino Buzzati to Silvio Soldini, and Alessandro Scotti to Carlo Furgeri Gilbert.

Music, in particular, was the star, from John Cage’s concerts at the Pirelli Tower to the experience of Salvatore Accardo in “Il Canto della Fabbrica”, explained on this special occasion by Maestro Francesco Fiore himself, the composer of the piece. The maestro, the famous musician of the Orchestra da Camera Italiana and first viola of the Orchestra del Teatro dell’Opera in Rome, guided the students through the work, which was commissioned by the Pirelli Foundation and composed in 2017. It was inspired by the sounds of the digital factory in the Pirelli Technology Centre in Settimo Torinese.
