Historical Archive

An artistic heritage of priceless value and beauty made up of paintings, sculptures, archaeological finds, libraries and buildings testify to Generali’s constant commitment to culture over its centuries-long insurance activity.


This exceptional heritage also comprises three historical Archives (Generali, INA-Assitalia and Toro Assicurazioni), declared cultural heritage of historical interest by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism in recognition of their value not only for the company but for all citizens as a “good that constitutes material testimony of civilisation”. This site section was created to promote this heritage by opening the doors to online consultation with the progressive publication of databases, accompanied by digital reproductions, and at the same time to recount Generali’s culture through the living papers of its Archive. Galleries of images, articles and news will flag Archive curiosities, discoveries, publications and events.

Our history

Generali opens up its Historical Archive for an exciting journey into History through the endless stories testified to in its papers. An important cultural asset that enables reconstruction of the development of a great insurance institute and recounts two centuries of Italian and world history. The archival heritage of the Company is completed with precious documentation from the Historical Archives of Ina-Assitalia and Toro Assicurazioni, two companies that have joined the Generali Group in recent years.
