Industrial Culture

Industrial Culture

Leonardo has made an essential contribution to the growth of industry in Italy by building up a vast heritage of high technology and skills which has taken historical brands to levels of excellence and made them capable of successfully competing all over the world. Leonardo has always been equated with progress and the modernisation of society, thanks to its ability to generate innovation, in technological, economic and social terms, as well as a widespread industrial culture.


The company museums, in which this cultural heritage has been capitalised, bear exceptional testimony to the historical, archiving and technological memory of this Company. True centres of culture, open to visitors, researchers, students, economic and cultural operators. An extraordinary helping hand in creating and managing the company museums has also been provided by the company’s employees, former employers and seniores, who have not only donated relics and reorganised the archives, but also often voluntarily repair these. 


Additionally, over the years Leonardo has participated in important projects which are expressions of industrial culture, such as Volandia in Somma Lombardo (Varese), the largest aeronautical park-museum in Italy, the Ansaldo Foundation in Genoa, and the commissioning of various publications of industrial literature.
