Adriano Olivetti succeeded in creating a new and unique factory experience in the world after the Second World War based on the principle that it is possible to create a balance between social solidarity and profit.

As a result, Olivetti workers lived in better conditions than other large Italian factories: they received higher wages and had kindergartens and houses available near the factory. (ANSA).
