The Rubber Factory Goes on Show
Pirelli, a century and a half of elasticity
Find out about the first production lines in Italy for innovative rubber objects and clothing, as well as the first tyres, set up by Giovanni Battista Pirelli in 1872. See how today’s “smart” tyres are made, from secret recipes and sustainable raw materials to production in the “beautiful factory”.
Meeting: During the online encounter we will go on a journey through time, from 150 years ago through to the present day: the children will learn about the various topics through stories, videos and interactive games.
Activities: The classroom will be transformed into an exhibition space that the children, who will play the part of artists and curators, will set up themselves. They will create the works and panels for an exhibition devoted to rubber, its various applications and the technological innovations that have revolutionised our everyday lives.
The course will take place entirely online and will be in the form of a live meeting.
