The newest edition of "Introducing Alstom" took place over multiple days. It began at the Rome plant on Friday, May 10, then moved to the Nola plant on Saturday, May 11. On Friday, May 17, the event will be held at the Bari, Bologna, Florence, and Valmadrera plants. The tour will then be concluded on Saturday, May 18 at the Savigliano, Sesto San Giovanni and Vado Ligure sites.

This year's theme revolves around technology and its diverse applications, covering digitisation, innovation in mobility, robotics, cybersecurity, and Artificial Intelligence. During the open days, attendees will have the opportunity to witness practical demonstrations and guided tours showcasing some of the technological innovations developed by Alstom in Italy. Among the various dedicated events, there will be ad hoc sessions to deepen some innovations such as Spiroll, the intelligent robot for maintenance, 3D printing, virtual room and TrainLab.

As part of the activities, there will be creative and educational workshops designed for children and young people aged 0 to 14. Using building bricks, participants will explore themes such as robotics, automation, and new technologies. These workshops, led by Bricks4Kids, an American company specialising in teaching S.T.E.M. subjects, offer a range of sessions grouped by age. Families can unleash their creativity and engineering skills in these workshops tailored specifically for Alstom.

"We are pleased to open the doors of our offices to the families and friends of Alstom employees from all over Italy," said Marco De Rosa, Director of Human Resources at Alstom in Italy.

He adds, "In this edition, we've decided to focus on a theme that's particularly significant for us at Alstom: technology. Technology stands as a vital pillar for our company, facilitating our daily delivery of efficient, reliable, and safe services. It also positions us as leaders in the mobility sector, continuously driving us towards the future. This event presents a unique opportunity to showcase not just our working environment and the innovations our professionals work on daily, but also to bridge the gap between innovation and young minds through educational workshops. Our aim is to share our passion and inspire the potential technicians and engineers of the future.”
