The Eni Village of Borca di Cadore near Cortina in Italy, was built between the late 50s and the early 60s. It raised thanks to the political and entrepreneurial ability, the ambition and willpower of Enrico Mattei, an Italian public administrator that restructured Agip (General Italian Oil Company) founded during fascism, into Eni, Ente Nazionale Idrocarburi (National Hydrocarbons Agency). Mattei was initially its president, then also the administrator and the general director. In practice, Eni was Mattei and Mattei was Eni.
The Eni Village is a large compound, of over 200.000 square meters, equipped with a plant developed on different structures. It was built, according to innovative criteria, in a large wood at the foot of the mount Antelao.
