On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of friendship, the official partnership document was finally signed in September 2022.

Large event in the Presolana massif together with the province of Bergamo
On 9 July 2017 President Dr Rainer Haas participated in the 'Cordata della Presolana'. It was a major event in the Presolana massif with several thousand participants, in the organisation of which the province of Bergamo played a major role. With the world's longest rope team, a Guinness world record was to be set in the Bergamasque Alps, on the one hand, and the importance of the regional mountain world and a sustainable approach to nature demonstrated on the other hand. Of course, our international partners and friends, among others from the county of Ludwigsburg, were also there to congratulate our Italian friends on achieving the world record. At the event, President Dr. Rainer Haas was interviewed about the friendship with the province of Bergamo. You can watch the video here:
