This is an in-depth tour taking into consideration the view of corporate museums. It is a reflection of the huge patrimony present in Italy, where iconic Italian corporations decide to tell their own story through a museum. This is in fact a journey through our economic and cultural history. Corporate museums are organizations that, on behalf of certain industries or most privately managed associations, collect materials, documents, and archives on the activities and operations of these very same companies. Consider post-war Italy, a period during which many production companies were founded, whose excellence is still prevalent today, becoming a point of international reference for product quality and creativity.
There is indeed a memory of these companies that still persists today and is carefully curated within specially designed industrial museums. This is also something extremely valuable for future production that should be as inspiration for new ideas and areas of application. It is crucial to see the past as a solid basis to build a great future. Often the buildings that host historic companies are truly museum buildings: with impressive architecture, particular infrastructures, taking over entire villages, and industrial districts. These buildings abound in Italy as the result of the industrial revolution throughout the centuries.
Our commitment is to present these buildings by preserving and disseminating their historical memory. By achieving this, we also collaborate with companies, whose mission is to promote tourism routes to their site and at the same time to promote their own journey internally. We wish to ultimately combine corporate tourism with an art itinerary, expressing a memory intertwined with artistic research. In our country there are different museums that preserve and truly value our companies’ memory: the Piaggio or Giorgio Amarelli, as well as the Olivetti, the Ducati, the Silk Village of San Leucio in Caserta, the Ferrari, and Pirelli, just to name a few. This is Italy’s uniqueness, disseminated from north to south and active in the main industrial sectors of Made in Italy. Exhibition structures linked to production companies that are our own trademarks. Our goal is to provide a path to historical reconstruction, offering exclusive visits to all these gems hidden across Italy.
