The transition from heavy industry to logistics managed by digital systems through the history of Ferriera, Trieste’s famous steel plant closed after 123 years of activity. Bytes, containers, white collars and silence replace fire, dust, sweat and crashes. The story of a transformation that aims at sustainability and the conversion of metallurgy into clean energy but also that of social changes linked to the effort to adapt certain contexts to new production models.
