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.

A Milanese upbringing
This book by Alberto Rollo tells half a century of Milan's history through the author's memories – an autobiography that also becomes the narration of a city in constant evolution. The upbringing Rollo mentions in the title refers to the working culture he learned from his father, a labourer and...
a communist, and from workshops and factories that were almost seen as sacred sites in an industrial Milan that, even in summer, “smelled of hot steel and cooling oil. A smell that mingled with the strong, acidic one of handwash paste.” Rollo's stories begin in the 1950s, when his family lived on Via Mac Mahon, and continue throughout his youth, in the 1960s and 1970s, when together with his friend Marco, he discovered Milan as a different city, brimming with culture, theatres, universities and also student political struggles, rather than with just factories.
