A heritage to be discovered, with an eye to the future

Pirelli, a century and a half of company stories

How can a company like Pirelli, with a history going back over 150 years, continue to innovate and consolidate its identity? First of all, by fully understanding its own cultural heritage, which combines science and humanism in almost 4 kilometres of documents protected by the Archival Superintendency of the Lombardy Region, and by promoting its heritage through research, publications, digital projects, exhibitions, events and a whole range of other activities. This is the mission of the Pirelli Foundation.  

Meeting
A guided tour of the rooms of the Pirelli Foundation, where the exhibition Pirelli, When History Builds the Future is currently on display, and of the Historical Archive, will introduce the students to the company’s corporate culture, which owes its origins to the intuition of the young engineer Giovanni Battista Pirelli. With video installations and digital displays, we will find out how Pirelli’s research started out in the world of racing and then moved onto roads the world over, with products designed for mass mobility.

From Track to Road

Pirelli, a century and a half of racing        

At Pirelli, experimentation to improve tyre production has always been closely linked to the world of sport, from cycling and motorcycle racing to rallying and Formula 1. The use of racetracks to push tyres to the most extreme limits and to innovate the company’s technology has always been globally recognised in the field of road safety and sustainability. Let’s find out about it together.  

Meeting
The students will visit the Pirelli Foundation, where the company’s Historical Archive is kept and where they will see the new exhibition Pirelli, When History Builds the Future. Here they will learn about the evolution of a multinational company that is about to be over 150 years old, with its eye firmly on the future.
They will be assisted as they examine photographs, audio-visuals and stories from the historic Pirelli magazine, finding out about the champions of the most famous road races. A look at the work currently being carried out by engineers in the digital factories of Industry 4.0 will show how a tyre is designed, tested in the laboratories and on the tracks, and finally produced in Pirelli’s most advanced technological centres.  

Description of the practical activity
The children will be divided into groups and asked to work together to build a robot that can compete with those made by the other teams in the class. This assisted activity aims to create a team spirit and introduce the children to the world of robotics.

A Story of Research and Innovation

Pirelli, a century and a half of digital experimentation and development

Throughout its 150-year history, Pirelli has constantly researched materials and technologies that are on the cutting edge in terms of safety and sustainability. It has always aimed to anticipate the future. Here we will find out about the main product innovations introduced by the company during its long history.

Sections of the course
1. Natural rubber, recycled materials and renewable sources used for the production of increasingly sustainable compounds for car, motorcycle and bicycle tyres. Suggestions will be given at the end of the meeting on how to organise the practical activities that the students will be able to carry out on their own, in groups.
2. The development of processes for the experimentation and virtualisation of tyres: a look at the simulator and technologies currently used in Pirelli's Research and Development laboratories.
3. Innovations in the production of cutting-edge tyres, from the first cars to electric cars, and the challenges of today and tomorrow: road safety and sustainable mobility.
4. The students will show their works, before final considerations and the end of the course.

Description of the practical activity
The students will be divided into groups and assisted as they create podcasts that describe the innovative technologies introduced by Pirelli in the field of experimentation for the production of increasingly safe and sustainable tyres.

The course will consist of three or four encounters and may be carried out entirely online or it may include a visit to the Pirelli Foundation, to be agreed upon subject to availability.

Going Fast Takes Time

Pirelli, a century and a half of research into innovative materials

“Even what seems the same to the eyes and heart is now profoundly different inside”: this is how one of the installations at the new Pirelli Foundation exhibition projects us into the world of tyres. A “round black object" that may look simple, but that actually reveals a very long process of research and development in terms of sustainability.

Sections of the course
1. We will find out about Pirelli's overriding commitment to sustainability, and its constant effort to protect the environment: from the creation of virtual prototypes, to the study of the best raw materials, recycled or from renewable sources, through to the factory production in 2021 of the world's first tyre to be awarded FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certification. Suggestions will be given at the end of the meeting on how to organise the practical activities that the students will be able to carry out on their own, in groups.
2. The students will show their works, before final considerations and the end of the course.

Description of the practical activity
The students will be assisted as they work on a photographic project that helps them reflect on the fundamental role that we all play in protecting our planet. They will be asked to take pictures of everyday life that, in their view, show responsible actions that aim to achieve the sustainable development goals set out in the United Nations 2030 agenda, which is supported by Pirelli.

The course will consist of two meetings and will be carried out online.
