Playing a game with friends, completing a project with classmates, bringing to life a new idea by working together, and expanding our horizons with the knowledge conveyed by books. Teaming up with others and learning by reading are important aspects of everyone’s life, and they help us mature by making the most of our strengths and differences so that we can be successful together.
“Teaming up” is the theme chosen by the Pirelli Foundation for #ioleggoperché 2019, a project launched by the Italian Publishers Association (AIE) to promote books and a passion for reading. We will talk about this with students aged between 10 and 14, together with Luigi Garlando, a sports journalist and author of children’s books, during a meeting on the morning of Monday, 21 October at the Auditorium of the Pirelli Headquarters in Milano Bicocca. The event will have the extraordinary participation of Javier Zanetti, vice president of FC Internazionale Milano, Regina Baresi, Captain of Inter Women and Mario Isola, Motorsport Racing Manager Pirelli. Other speakers will be Marco Tronchetti Provera, executive vice president and CEO of Pirelli, Laura Galimberti, councillor for Education and Instruction of the Municipality of Milan, Ricardo Franco Levi, president of the Italian Publishers Association and Antonio Calabrò, director of the Pirelli Foundation.
The meeting will also provide an opportunity to talk about a project launched by the Pirelli Foundation to promote active cooperation between private companies, public institutions, and schools, showing how it is possible to make the territory prosper by creating synergies between the various entities that operate within it.
