Strengthening relations with the local Community: NRDC-ITA at the Olona Valley Day

NRDC-ITA representatives took part to the Olona Valley Day, an annual traditional local community meeting, organized on the site of the former textile industry in Solbiate Olona, built in the XIX century and one of the first industrial realities in Italy.

Its awesome infrastructure is now example of industrial archeology. The Olona Valley Day has the aim to let the various local institutions meet together with the population, to know each other in order to strengthen collaboration and support.

The core activity of the meeting has been a cross-country non-competitive race, to get children and adults closer to the natural environment of the river Olona. Among others, NRDC-ITA representatives illustrated to the people a tactical vehicle Iveco-Oto Melara (Finmeccanica group) VTLM “Lince” and some of the CBRN and radio-communication equipment used when deployed in operations or exercise.

“It’s a fantastic day – Francesco, one of the thousands of children attending the event, said – “Finally I got into a wonderful military truck! Thanks!”.
