International ProjectsEdit

Mabetex sent, using its own structure and with the help of its employees, many tons of first aid goods to refugees camps in Albania; helped other institutions in Italy and Switzerland to envoy goods using Mabetex's trucks.[2]
Pacolli's group is known for having renovated the Kremlin in grand scale, lavish in gold leaf and with other extravagant materials.[3]
Evidence of the Group's capabilities can be seen in the construction of the Presidential Complex of the new capital of Kazakhstan, Astana, where more than 1,000,000 m2 were constructed.[4]


Mabetex is currently working in Kazakhstan where it has played an important role in the construction of the new capital Astana, and one of the awarded projects completed there was the new Ak Orda Presidential Palace. Situated on the left bank of the Ishim River, its architecture combines classic, modern and ethnic influences. The president's residence is part of a complex of modern administrative buildings in the new center of the city – and its main purpose is to symbolize the new face of Kazakhstan.[5] The Group is a major player in the Kazakhstan construction sector, having built nearly 40% of the buildings in the New Astana City,[6] including Astana opera.


In Italy, the Mabetex Group was responsible in the study and project for the refurbishment of the La Fenice theatre in Venice after it was burned.[citation needed] In Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan, the group constructed the award-winning project for the City Hall.[citation needed]
