The three highlight projects 2018
“Lamborghini named as a 'Top Employer Italia 2018'”
Tracce Musicali – Partnership with Teatro Comunale Bologna
In accordance with its corporate responsibility strategy, Automobili Lamborghini supports cultural initiatives and institutions that aim to enhance the local region’s social development. In 2016, Automobili Lamborghini decided to engage in a partnership with the Teatro Comunale of Bologna, the main theater in Bologna, staging performances of opera, music and ballet. It has also established an opera school to support the development of young artists. In 2018, Automobili Lamborghini supported the Teatro Comunale’s activities by sponsoring the opera in four acts “La bohème” by Giacomo Puccini. Automobili Lamborghini further strengthened the partnership with Teatro Comunale by organizing “Tracce Musicali”, a CR initiative dedicated to students from Emilia-Romagna schools. The initiative aimed to foster a broader appreciation of musical culture among members of the younger generation by allowing students to attend rehearsals for the 2018 Symphonic Season free of charge.
MUNER (Motorvehicle University of Emilia-Romagna)
Automobili Lamborghini strongly believes in the value of professional training and the value of culture: not just automotive, but also academic and musical. For those aspiring to succeed in any field, knowledge is the essential first step. For this reason, the company has entered into major partnerships with the region’s universities with the aim of further strengthening the bond between education and business. In March 2017, the most prestigious automotive companies in the Emilia-Romagna Region, including Automobili Lamborghini, joined with the University of Bologna, the University of Ferrara, the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, and the University of Parma to set up a new high-level training hub, the Motorvehicle University of Emilia-Romagna (MUNER). The project was made possible by the commitment and support of the Emilia-Romagna Regional Administration.
The new university offers degree courses for training the designers of the future – the professionals who will develop tomorrow’s road and racing vehicles, sustainable propulsion systems, smart subsystems, and state-of-the-art Industry 4.0 production plants. Involving specialists across the entire region, this initiative aims to foster not only research, innovation and technological development, but also economic growth and employment.
Office Block Certified under LEED Platinum Standard
In 2017, the company began construction of a new office building that complies with LEED criteria and is eligible for full certification under the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standard. This international green building standard promotes a sustainability-oriented approach, evaluating the performance of buildings in terms of key criteria such as energy efficiency, water consumption, reduced carbon emissions, the ecological quality of interiors, the materials and resources used, the way the project is managed and the choice of site.
