Cassa Depositi e Prestiti
170 years of our joint heritage
On 18 November 1850, Cassa Depositi e Prestiti was established with the mission of promoting Italy's development by supporting local authorities to build public utilities.
Much has changed since that 18 November. With our historic mission as a foundation, we have expanded our work to respond to the many shifting challenges of the Italian economy. Over time we have added to local authority mortgages with a range of infrastructure financing activities and support for enterprise, now including international cooperation and large strategic equity investments.
On the inauguration of our 170th year, we renew our commitment to the country. A joint commitment with our 27 million savers who invest in Italy every day.
Happy 170th anniversary!
The inauguration ceremony
