Welcome to the Italy Group

We have a membership base in Italy of about 250 members and affiliates.

The Italian Branch committee was constituted on 2nd October 2010 and the first event was the Presidential visit in October 2010, with automotive visits in the Bologna region.

Past events include a trip to Maserati headquarters in Modena, Italy. The group had a guided tour of the facilities and were accompanied by the President of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, John Wood.

We have organised serveral technical events each year since then: 

  • SAME DEUTZ - Agricultural vehicles, (Treviglio),
  • Young Members Formula Vehicles Event (Milano),
  • Tenaris Dalmine - Steel Plant (Bergamo),
  • A2A Waste to Energy Plant (Brescia),

    Museo Nazionale Scienza e Tecnologia “Leonardo da Vinci” - Milano
    The Museo Nazionale Scienza e Tecnologia “Leonardo da Vinci” is the largest museum of science and technology in Italy, and one of the most important in Europe and in the world. Alongside Leonardo's works, the Museum offers a vast panorama of vehicles and machines that have characterised human history.
