Two groups of boys and girls from eleven to fourteen years old have participated to the “Girls’ and Boys’ Day” to discover the world of Pirelli’s manufacturing in Germany.

For the 15th time, Breuberg plant opened its doors to young students so that they could discover the manufacturing process and the different careers in the tyre industry.

It was a way to discover aptitudes and carriers which in the past were considered as a specific gender exclusive but that today have certainly overcome all gender barriers.

Divided into two groups, the students participated to a special “behind the scenes” tour into the Breuberg plant and in the nearby Pirelli Museum.

A great opportunity for education and to discover the different professions and careers paths.
