Finmeccanica and Italy's historic-artistic heritage

In support of those responsible for the protection and enhancement of the ruins of Pompeii, the Finmeccanica Group will donate to the said site the innovative services and technologies indentified in the agreement signed with MiBACT.

Rome   02 April 2014

The Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism (MiBACT) and Finmeccanica have sealed an agreement whereby the Group will donate innovative technologies and services for monitoring and protecting the archaeological site of Pompeii.

 

Through its companies, Selex ES and Telespazio, Finmeccanica is contributing its technological know-how free of charge, to those responsible for the protection and enhancement of one of the world’s most famous and fragile archaeological sites. Finmeccanica’s commitment provides evidence of the Group’s desire to give prominence and importance to the restoration of cultural treasures of particular interest, while being totally in line with Finmeccanica’s ongoing mission in the field of high technology.

 

The decision to focus on Pompeii derives, on the one hand, from the urgent nature of the challenges facing the site, and on other hand from the desire to restore to the Campania region - where the Finmeccanica Group employs over 6,000 people in the various controlled companies operating in this area - some of the technological research in which the Group heavily invests.

 

This agreement has seen the active involvement, not only of Selex ES and Telespazio, but also of all the institutional bodies concerned (MiBACT, the Great Pompeii Project, the Special Superintendence for the Archaeological Heritage of Pompeii, Herculaneum and Stabiae, Directorate-General for Antiquities) in an open exchange of ideas within a process of productive collaboration.
