Transcom has had offices in L'Aquila for 18 years, and is deeply linked to the territory, not only by its many employees. The event celebrated the rebirth of the crater territories, and gave concrete aid to the students of the mountain municipality hit by the earthquakes in 2009 and 2016. The Falcone & Borsellino institute was inaugurated on September 11th,and apart from hosting elementary and middle classes, it can also be used as a safe structure by the Civil Protection in case of emergencies.

The initiative is part of Transcom Cares, our global program for social responsibility and solidarity, and thanks to the contribution of colleagues from all over Italy, Transcom could donate 45 boxes of stationery material that the students will use in their daily activities.

For Transcom, the event was a unique opportunity to be in direct contact with the territory. We have always believed in the power of the people from these areas. During the touching ceremony, Transcom employees read passages from the book Il Giglio dell'Aquila, published by Transcom shortly after the earthquake, remembering the past and celebrating the territories new life, thanks to the joint efforts of individuals and institutions.

The event was attended by, among others; Lorena Marzolo, Client Service Manager at Transcom; MP Stefania Pezzopane; Guido Quintino Liris, Vice Mayor of L'Aquila; Massimiliano Giorgi and Carlo Marini, the Mayor and the Deputy Mayor of Montereale; Gianluca Gemma, General Manager Italian Market and Giuseppe Bertini, HR Director Central & South Europe.
