The Banco di Napoli Historical Archives can be considered the largest archival collection of bank documents in the entire world. There are documents dating back to the middle of the 1500s to the present day. They are stored in nearly 330 rooms spread across two different buildings, Palazzo Ricca and Palazzo Cuomo, at the Banco di Napoli Foundation which is located on a famous street in the heart of Naples, via dei Tribunali. The content of these documents ranges from the economic, social and artistic history of the southern Italian peninsula to documents regarding the structure and the evolution of banking and credit institutions, as well as business contracts with other European nations.
