During today’s press conference, TAL Group President has explained the initiatives that will take place in the next months to celebrate the Pipelines’s 50 years of work in the three countries: “Today we are celebrating the berth of the first tanker Daphnella in the Marine Terminal – explained Lilli – but there are many important moments until October, that have marked these 50 years since the beginning of operations. This anniversary is not only an opportunity to celebrate the past but also to look to the future.
We decided to dedicate this celebration to the territories we live in, what we call “Pipelife”: the environment, the economy and the life along the pipeline”. For this reason, last week, the Company organized a series of events for the young: two groups of students from technical institutes visited the Tank Farm, students from San Dorligo della Valle and Domio middle schools sailed across the Gulf to discover the Port of Trieste and the Marine Terminal, the pupils and cadets of the Nautical Institute followed a lesson about the maritime history of Trieste and the nautical professions at Siot.
This afternoon at 17.30, the Mayor of Trieste Roberto Dipiazza will inaugurate in piazza Unità a symbolic installation of the role of TAL Group in Europe. The installation will be on display in piazza Unità until the end of the month. “We wanted to explain – said Lilli – our activity with a work that depicts the pipeline as a bridge connecting Italy, Austria and Germany, an infrastructure that carries energy and knowledge, linking people, economies and cultures”.
On 27 April, the TAL group is organizing an international congress at the Ridotto del Teatro Verdi entitled “Friuli Venezia Giulia, Austria, Germany: energy for growth. The role of economy and finance within European integration”, that will feature a delegation from Austria and Germany as well as outstanding speakers. In addition to all these events, TAL is also preparing a book called “Pipelife”, that describes through 50 beautiful photographs taken by photo reporter Fabrizio Giraldi the life above the pipeline route.
