The Italian job: Part 2. Gasworld visits Europe’s gas valley


From Bergamo to Monza, the rustic skyline of towers, cupolas and campaniles typifies Italy’s Lombardy region.

It’s a case of arrivederci to our UK office, as gasworld goes on tour in Part 2 of the Italian job.

During our visit to gas valley, we’ve already taken in trips to Tecno Project Industriale, SIAD and VRV, all located in and around the historic city of Bergamo. Here we pick-up the trail at our visit to Tenaris, just a short distance from our last meeting in Ornago with VRV S.p.A.
