On the 15th of July 2016, the Bracco Foundation offered a free concert to the city of Torviscosa with the Orchestra of the Accademia Teatro alla Scala conducted by Maestro Pietro Mianiti, to celebrate the conclusion of the digitisation project of the archive SNIA Viscosa, a historical heritage now accessible to everyone.

Torviscosa is an example of positive osmosis between industry, the local area and the environment, where 14 years ago the Bracco Group recovered a part of the historic industrial site of SNIA Viscosa dating back to the 1930s in order to house SPIN, one of its most technologically sophisticated production facilities. In order to forge closer and closer ties with the local area, the Bracco Foundation and Spin collaborated with the City Council of Torviscosa on the digitisation of the Historical Archives SNIA, which represented a milestone for Italian social and economic history. The impressive archive consists of over 2,000 drawings, 7,700 photographic sheets and 1,200 negatives from photographic film.
