It was in 2008, by initiative of the Municipality of Ivrea and the Adriano Olivetti Foundation, that the idea of proposing the candidature of “Ivrea Industrial City of the 20th Century" was born.
From that moment on, the project that saw an important step in May 2012, came to life with the inclusion of the proposal in the UNESCO national proposal list (Tentative List).
Since then, the Municipality of Ivrea, the Ministry of Heritage and Cultural and Tourism Activities, together with the Adriano Olivetti and the Guelpa Foundations, have been working on the preparation of the application dossier and the complex work required to prepare the management.
