Emilgroup believes in the social and cultural role of enterprise and has promoted and financed important projects to promote and safeguard cultural heritage over the years.
Emilgroup has made a long-term commitment to the restoration of the Ducal Palace in Sassuolo, recovering and restoring the original floors in terracotta and financing the restoration of the 17th-century frescoes by painter Jean Boulanger in the “Camera di Giove” (Jupiter Room).
Among the many initiatives, the most important and original include the rediscovery of the ancient origins of Sassuolo ceramics, supported and documented with the publication of fundamental works, including volumes on Sassuolo ceramics from the 18th and 19th centuries.
In 1999, Emilgroup completed the renovation of Villa Vigarani Guastalla, a historic 17th-century building by Gaspare Vigarani, which houses the collection of ancient artistic Sassuolo ceramics.
Since 2008 the group has annually awarded 10 student grants for a total of 10,000 euro for the children of its employees who have shown exceptional merit in their studies.
This initiative is the outcome of an agreement with the representatives of the workforce, with the aim of supporting successful academic careers and consolidating achievement. The grants are awarded in the autumn by the Group's Chairman, Villiam Tioli, in the presence of representatives of the authorities and the students' families, at Villa Vigarani Guastalla, Fiorano.
