The FAI (Italian Environment Fund) on the occasion of the Spring Days has chosen to pay homage to the founder of IREM, Mario Celso, with a series of initiatives to remember the origins of his career and the consequent birth of IREM.

Since 1975, the FAI has been an Italian non-profit foundation that operates thanks to the support of private citizens, companies and institutions for the protection of the Italian historical, artistic and landscape heritage, periodically organizing visits, exhibitions and events linked to the territory.

Also on the premises of the Cento Passi Institute was the exhibition “The prototypes of Mario Celso – The innovations of an Oscar-winning Valsusino”, where it was possible to admire period photographs and documents on the incredible story of Mario Celso.

Finally, in the panorama of events promoted by the FAI, it was possible to take part in the guided tour of the hydroelectric power plant located in Borgata Cattero in Sant’Antonino di Susa, where there is an IREM production turbine, as an example of a typical stand-alone plant for mountain communities which gave rise to the Hydro division of IREM.
