To mark Italian tyre giant Pirelli’s 140th anniversary this year, company chairman and CEO Marco Tronchetti Provera, and the firm’s top management were received by the President of Italy, Giorgio Napolitano.
“It was a great honour for me and for all of us to be received by President Napolitano on the occasion of the 140th anniversary of the birth of Pirelli,” Provera said.
“It is an anniversary we are celebrating with the 36,000 people, throughout the world, who share in the pride of belonging to a group that has taken the excellence of Italian industry everywhere in the world.
“Over these 140 years we have grown greatly.
Since 1872 we have put passion and creativity into our work to reach new horizons. We have also realised ideas and the most advanced technologies, and claimed as our own the modernity displayed by Giovanni Battista Pirelli when he founded the company at the age of only 24.
“Always looking to the future means carrying 140 years of history without feeling its weight, but taking advantage of all that experience. And it is the only way we know of interpreting our role and our responsibility as an enterprise among the most deeply rooted in the country’s industrial fabric.”
