          To help improve insurance knowledge, we allow access to our two libraries in Trieste and in Rome, which hold historic insurance volumes, including some 16th and 17th century works.

          The collections, which have grown as a result of shrewd acquisitions and donations, are partly differentiated by content: the Trieste library includes a vast local history collection, while the Rome library focuses more on periodicals. The works housed in the libraries were published in Italy and other countries. Most are in Italian, but some are in German, French and English.


          Development of the Central Library began as soon as Generali was founded.

          At present, the Trieste Library contains some 30,000 publications on insurance science, law, economics, actuarial mathematics and statistics, as well as the company's Venetian collections.


          The Library, founded in Rome in 1912 at the same time as the Istituto Nazionale delle Assicurazioni (INA), contains some 32,000 books and over 250 journal titles, both contemporary and historic, on the company’s specialist areas.

          When INA was acquired in 2000, its library was incorporated into the Generali Group's holdings.
