“With the entry of Tim among the co-founding members – declares the president of Fvcms, Renato Brunetta – we welcome a leader of the digital transition process who, as demonstrated by the broad participation of the Tim Group, cuts across many of the strategic areas of interest to the Foundation. What we have in common, in addition to the desire to create a new model of sustainability that starts right from Venice, is the idea that the future must pass through innovative skills and solutions in favor of real changes in our daily lives”.
“We are very proud to be able to work alongside the Venice World Capital of Sustainability Foundation and to do so by making our skills and assets available – he declares Peter Labriola, managing director of Tim – Venice is a very important city for our Company: it is precisely here that we started developing the Smart Control Room together with local institutions, a pilot project for the development of smart cities, synonymous with innovation and sustainability, which we want to replicate on a national scale. Becoming a co-founder of the Foundation is the confirmation of our bond with Venice and of our commitment to being a Group at the forefront of accelerating the digitization of Italy”.
