After the success achieved at the Vittoriano in Rome, with over 40,000 visitors, and in Ravenna, Milan, Stresa and Mantua, eni’s travelling exhibition “The six-legged dog: a symbol between memory and future” now moves to the Museo Correr in Venice. The exhibition “The six-legged dog”, arranged by eni’s historical archive, runs through the history of the company from 1953 to date, across the transformations of its famous logo.
Images, original documents, memorabilia, documentary films and sketches from the wealth of eni’s historical archive and from private collections will accompany visitors making it possible to run through the history of the company and experience a few historical stages that have marked the development of Italy’s economy and society. In the background the four different trade marks that have always shown as a distinctive feature the six-legged dog designed by sculptor Luigi Broggini in 1952.
A section of the exhibition shows a selection of historical images and documents of eni’s activity in Venice while the final section deals with today’s activities and includes the performances of emerging talents who have inaugurated the new season of eni’s communication. The poster and graphics of the exhibition, too, have been created by a young artist, Agostino Iacurci, the author of a new version of the logo.
For the first time eni tells its own history from its origins having visitors run across the path that for almost sixty years has lead the company to rank among the best companies and to develop from oil company to energy company.
In the course of the exhibition eni has organized four meetings dealing with the years of the economic boom.
