Cinema & History 2015-2016
Narrating the Factory and Work

Starting on 15 February 2016, the Pirelli Foundation will host a series of meetings on the history of factories and work in the twentieth century, for teachers of lower and upper secondary schools of Lombardy Region.

The course, now in its fourth edition, is promoted by Fondazione ISEC in collaboration with the Pirelli Foundation and the Fondazione Cineteca Italiana. It will adopt a multidisciplinary approach to examine the issue of work, which is highly relevant today and of great social and cultural importance. After an introductory lecture that will provide a historical overview of the rise of industrial society in the twentieth century, two subsequent meetings will look at the factory and work, through the unique vision of the arts: literature, cinema, and photography.

The lessons will be followed by two workshops in the archive, during which the teachers will come into direct contact with documents and archive sources. The course for teachers will then continue with a guided tour of the Pirelli Industrial Centre in Settimo Torinese, one of the most advanced tyre manufacturing plants in the world, to which the architect Renzo Piano contributed by designing the Spina, the central “backbone” of the factory. The course also includes three film screenings introduced by film history scholars. The film screenings will be held in the morning and will be open not only to teachers but also to student classes who may be interested.

Teachers need to enrol on the course (including the lessons, the workshops in the archive, and a visit to the Industrial Centre in Settimo Torinese) by writing to didattica@fondazioneisec.it by Friday 30 January 2016.

Registered teachers will be provided with teaching materials related to the course.

Cinema screenings for classes must be booked. Please call +39 02 6442 3971 or write to schools@fondazionepirelli.org

A certificate of attendance will be available for teachers, upon request.
