Bach: Music and Science in the Factory
Music returns to the workplace
Over three hundred young people packed the Auditorium at the Pirelli Headquarters, on Thursday, 21 November 2019, to attend an event entitled Bach: Music and Science in the Factory. Engineers and musicians came together on stage to explain to middle- and high-school students about the invisible but close bond that unites the magic of musical notes with mathematical numbers. Maestro Salvatore Accardo’s violin led the way, starting with Bach – who more than anyone expressed the relationship between music and mathematics – and reaching all the way to the perfection of robotic movements in the factory, which follow a sequence like a symphony, adopting the algorithms of Industry 4.0 like the system of marks on a pentagram.
