BTicino supports the Gold-medal-winning Italian rowing team at the Beijing Paralympics 2008
Sponsored by BTicino, the Italian adaptive rowing team brilliantly took Gold at the Beijing Paralympic Games 2008, beating the usual favourites from the US and Britain.
This shining example of human willpower also provides an illustration of BTicino's strong practical commitment to furthering the integration of people with disabilities in society and in the workplace.
With this aim the company has, since 1987, taken close to 300 apprentices with a mental or physical disability, to give them a two-year work experience. Besides support and motivation from the group, each of them was provided with a specially adapted personal workstation and supervision by a dedicated tutor throughout their apprenticeship.
