Preserving Knowledge
and Promoting Reading

The first Pirelli library was set up in 1928, when a subscription library with 800 books was made available to personnel who were members of the Dopolavoro Aziende Pirelli, the workers’ club. It was one of the first examples of a company promoting reading and the start of long tradition that Pirelli has continued to this day with company libraries in the Headquarters at Milano Bicocca, in the factory in Bollate and in the Industrial Centre in ​​Settimo Torinese. But there is more, for the company has also been collecting scientific texts for over a century, and these now form part of the Scientific and Technical Library at the Pirelli Foundation. The panorama of Pirelli libraries ends with the Pirelli Foundation Library, which has books ranging from the history of the company to corporate communication.

Breve storia del mio silenzio

curated by Fondazione Pirelli

Poetry from the origins, from childhood memories, in the austere, age-old Lucania. The ambitions of modernity, with an eye on an enlightened Milan, built on the dynamism of work, and on consumption and profound social change. Giuseppe Lupo’s Breve storia del mio silenzio – “a brief history of my silence”...
– published by Marsilio, the most beautiful and intense novel by a writer who once again shows how he can brilliantly combine lucid, melancholy autobiography writing with an authentic sense of history. The first scene unfolds inside a family home in the late 1970s, in a small town in the south of Italy. The mother a schoolteacher, and the father too, with a love of organising cultural encounters. The announcement of the birth of a little sister turns on its head the world of a little boy who is as sensitive as he is filled with a feeling of marginalisation by the new arrival. He finds refuge in a long, obstinate silence. But then he slowly, and wearily, begins to reacquire the word, through books, until at last, in the pages he has read and written, he finds the true, profound meaning of his destiny. All the way to his arrival in Milan, and university, and the revelation of publishing.
