The Bank’s publishing activity began in the late nineteenth century, with the publication of the Statutes or Chapters of Monte dei Paschi di Siena, and continued with the monumental history of the institution in nine volumes by Narciso Mengozzi. It went on to develop significantly, especially in the second half of the twentieth century.
During all this period, the bank’s editorial decisions have always been based on two criteria: first, close attention to the scholarly rigor of the contents and the quality of the works, and second, a prevalent interest in topics pertinent to the territory and communities with which it is in most direct contact.
The brief summaries presented here, while limited to just some of the most important publications issued since 2000, bear ample witness to this, offering to the attention of experts and the wider public a wealth of documents and images distinguished by their high quality and their contribution to knowledge.
Monte dei Paschi di Siena Bank is proud of its publishing activities, as evidence of our vocation to promote and support cultural activities—a vocation that takes concrete form, as is well known, in direct support to initiatives in the visual arts and music proposed by institutions of recognized national and international prestige and in direct ownership of cultural properties of inestimable value.
