Sergio Mattarella inaugurates the Aula Magna (lecture hall) of the Milan Polytechnic, dedicated to Giampiero Pesenti: «I am delighted to be in this Auditorium named after an important figure of a student».
On June 22nd, the new campus and the Aula Magna of the Milan Polytechnic, dedicated to Giampiero Pesenti, were inaugurated in the presence of the President of the Italian Republic Sergio Mattarella.
During the meeting, Mattarella and Ferruccio Resta, Rector of the Polytechnic, commemorated the figure of Giampiero Pesenti – who graduated from the Milan Athenaeum – and after whom the Aula Magna was named.
In this regard, Carlo Pesenti, Giampiero’s son, president of the Pesenti Foundation and CEO of Italmobiliare S.p.A., said: «This will be an unforgettable day for me, my children and our whole family.
The words that the President of the Republic and the Rector of the Polytechnic said about my father are an extraordinary recognition of his figure, his history, his values.
Entitling the aula magna to his name consolidates the bond of our family with this great Milanese and Lombard institution, a path that began in the early years of the last century and has gradually consolidated over the decades.
I want to thank the President with respectful affection and the Rector with great esteem and gratitude for this extraordinary event and for this choice in memory of a great entrepreneur, a great engineer, but first of all, for me, a great father».
