Pirelli is marking the 50th anniversary of its iconic calendar - which for half a century has featured beautiful women captured by world-renowned photographers. Several events, exhibitions and publications are being organized to celebrate the calendar, which was first published in 1964. Addressing an audience of top models, reporters and other guests, Pirelli chairman Marco Tronchetti Provera said the anniversary was an important one for the company.
