Assicurazioni Generali’s cultural heritage: an Italian and international story of people, buildings, documents, books, art and artefacts, beginning in 1831 and containing something for everyone. The Assicurazioni Generali Historical Archive in Trieste is one of the world’s largest insurance archives, recognised as a cultural asset by the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities. It contains over 65,000 items available for research, including thousands of digitised books and photographs recalling famous and lesser known historical events and figures, from Franz Kafka to Pope Pius X, and from Charles I – the last Habsburg Emperor – to launches of Italian and international space missions.

The Archive offers reference services, publishes informatory articles and books on its documents, and participates in exhibitions and conferences. It also runs guided visits in which colleagues from all over the world and all those who are interested can learn about the driving ambition and innovatory spirit that have traditionally moulded Generali’s fundamental values.


Open to the public for the first time in 500 years, the Procuratie Vecchie in St Mark’s Square in Venice are now the Home of The Human Safety Net, a global movement of people helping people, active in 24 countries, whose mission is to unlock the potential of those living in a state of vulnerability so that they can improve the living conditions of their families and communities. Inside the Procuratie, the interactive exhibition “A World of Potential” is a real journey to discover yout own potential, through which it is also possible to support The Human Safety Net: half the cost of the ticket goes to support one of the Foundation’s programmes of the visitor’s choice. The exhibition, curated by Orna Cohen of Social Dialogue Enterprise and designed by Studio Migliore + Servetto Milan, involves visitors in a journey in which they can explore their strengths together with the others. Also part of the exhibition is The Art Studio, which opens its programme with ‘Chutzpah, a tent that is not a tent, animals that are not animals’, an exhibition project dedicated to the value of courage by Atelier dell’Errore BIG, curated by Gabi Scardi.
