Milan from a Car Window

Pirelli, a century and a half of places to discover

The close bond between Pirelli and Milan can be seen in the transformation of some areas and buildings in this city, such as the area around the central station with the Pirelli Tower, and the Bicocca district.

Meeting: As though sitting comfortably in a wonderful vintage car, we’ll go on a tour through the past and present of the city, with its Duomo, its theatres and factories, its skyscrapers and fog...

Activities: Together we’ll create a colourful map of the city of Milan. The children will discover and depict the main buildings that form the cityscape of the capital of Lombardy and they will design new ones, trying to imagine an increasingly sustainable future for our cities.

The course will take place entirely online and will be in the form of a meeting.

”Architecture is a crystal”
(Gio Ponti)

Pirelli, a century and a half of projects for the future

Pirelli has been behind some of the great urban transformations and innovations in Milan: the district where the Pirelli Tower stands, the Bicocca area to the north of the city, and the project for the world’s first metropolitan greenway (from Milan to Monza).

Meetings:
1. The Pirelli Tower: a building and a symbol, which turned 60 in 2020 and is as contemporary as ever thanks to its structure that, like a crystal, is traversed by light and that illuminates the city at night. We will study the architect Gio Ponti’s masterpiece with its diamond-shaped plan, designed to improve the conditions of those who inhabit it.
2. The Bicocca district: from the fifteenth-century villa from which it takes its name, to the historic cooling tower that is now the heart of the Pirelli Headquarters. Through videos, photographs and stories we will discover how the area has been transformed, all the way to the project created by the architect Vittorio Gregotti.

Activities: The students will play the part of tourist guides, creating interactive maps with a wealth of content to share with lots of new visitors.

The course will take place entirely online and will be in the form of two live meetings.

Planning and designing workplaces



Pirelli, a century and a half of industrial architecture

Find out about some of the partnerships between Pirelli and the great names that have made the history of architecture, and see how the conception of workplaces has changed over the past hundred years.

Meetings:
1. The Pirelli Tower: the masterpiece of the architect Gio Ponti paves the way for a new vision of architecture in Italy. 61 years and still going strong.
2. The Bicocca area: the great transformations of this district throughout the twentieth century, through to the architect Vittorio Gregotti’s Bicocca Project which looks to the future.
3. Pirelli Industrial Centre in Settimo Torinese: a factory with a wealth of history and now one of the company’s most advanced plants. As part of this technological complex, the architect Renzo Piano designed the so-called Spina building, which houses the factory services (canteen, offices and a library) flanked by 400 cherry trees.

Activities: For all school curricula: the students will be divided into groups and helped to create a blog with tourism and cultural itineraries on the theme of architecture, showing the most interesting aspects of the places examined during the meetings. For architecture-oriented institutes: the students will be asked to plan and design an ideal new headquarters for a company: a place that is pleasant to live in and that respects the criteria of sustainability and safety.
The course will take place entirely online and will be in the form of three live meetings.
