Pirelli Libraries: A World of Books and Knowledge on the Foundation’s New Website

The Pirelli libraries are now on the Foundation’s new website, with an entire section devoted to the world of books. A space with a wealth of history and images, telling the story of a tradition that dates all the way back to 1928, when Pirelli opened its first library. A tradition that continues today to promote culture and industrial innovation. Part of this new section is devoted to the Scientific and Technical Library, which was set up by the company for researchers, engineers, and scholars. This library has over 16,000 volumes on the extraction, processing, and technology of rubber from the nineteenth century to the present day, with scientific texts and extremely rare copies of technical magazines, both Italian and international. Together with the Technical-Scientific Library there is also the Pirelli Foundation Library: about 2,000 books on the history of the company, economic history, corporate communication, art, design, sport.

The catalogues of the Scientific and Technical Library and that of the Foundation can be accessed online on the Italian National Library Service (Servizio Bibliotecario Nazionale, SBN) platform and now, thanks to the new “Help with your research” tool on our website, users can book an appointment to consult the volumes in person. And then there are company libraries, which are there to help improve the quality of life and work for employees: from the library at the Pirelli Industrial Centre in Settimo Torinese to the ones opened in 2016 at the Bollate factory and in the Milano-Bicocca Headquarters. The Pirelli libraries form part of the Sistema Bibliotecario of Milan and that of the Metropolitan Area of Turin, and work with other cultural institutions on special projects and initiatives to promote books and reading, especially among the younger generations.

The page devoted to the libraries also has a section called “The libraries tell their story“, with articles, images and videos of the events organised by the Pirelli Group and by the Foundation to promote reading. Finally, an important new feature is the space reserved for “recommended reading“, a column compiled by the Foundation, with suggestions and reviews of works on economics, company history, and corporate culture, but also novels and much more.
