The Mantova paper mill on exhibition

Cartiera di Mantova
28/04/2011

Burgo Group is sponsoring Pier Luigi Nervi, Architettura come sfida (Pier Luigi Nervi, Architecture as a challenge), an itinerant exhibition which is coming to Torino Esposizioni from 29 April to 17 July.
The Turin edition, Torino, la committenza industriale, le culture architettoniche e politecniche italiane, includes in the exhibition and catalogue Nervi's design project for the Burgo plant in Mantua: the bridge-factory standing out for its suspension bridge outline and for the modernity with which it merges architecture and engineering, still now 50 years after start of the work (on February 1961).
The bridge paper mill, specialized in newsprint manufacturing, stands out, besides its architectural beauty, for its sustainability process; this is also attested officially by the EMAS registration issued in 2010 by the Ecolabel and Ecoaudit committee of the Ministry for the Environment and by the very recent FSCĀ® recycled certification.
Particularly green is also the Burgo paper on which the Silvana Editoriale catalogue is printed: Respecta 100, the new environmentally-friendly fine coated paper with FSCĀ® 100% recycled certification.
By this sponsorship Burgo is celebrating the beauty of Nervi's genius and, why not, the beauty of paper itself as a bridge to transmit ideas in the most natural way.
