For Pirelli, Monza is a special Grand Prix.
Our headquarters is no more than 15 km from the Monza racetrack as the crow flies, which is why it is known as the home Grand Prix.
This year we wanted to make the Monza GP special, with a completely unexpected surprise for three fans of motor racing. Andrea, Giuseppe and Marco are big fans of F1®, have a common passion for motorsports and love sharing their point of view on races and drivers via their social media accounts or blog pages.
The idea was to share our passion for racing and our work, letting our guests experience all the things we do during competition weekends.
For Andrea and Giuseppe the weekend began on Friday afternoon when they had the chance to visit our Bicocca Experimentation Centre, where various tyre tests are carried out for both road driving and racing.
The visit then took them to the Pirelli Foundation, where documents, historical photographs and the whole archive of sketches and original designs which, over time, world famous artists and other creatives have made for Pirelli are collected. For these two racing fans we opened up an archive of images and photographs of more than 100 years of Pirelli's involvement in motorsport.
