The aim of the Bank of Italy’s Historical Series, published by Laterza until 2011 and by Marsilio since 2012, is to make documents, statistics, analyses and monographic studies available to researchers, as instruments serving to stimulate and facilitate research and scholarship. One or two years after their publication (depending on the Series), the works are made accessible in digital form on this website.
The Historical Series contains four series of volumes.
- The Documents Series from the Bank's historical archive
- The Statistics Series that makes real and financial time series available to scholars as part of the Bank's ongoing research projects
- The Analysis Series that proposes the results of historical and economic research projects
- The Essays and Research Series featuring monographic essays
Ignazio Visco (Chairman), Piero Barucci, Tancredi Bianchi†, Valerio Castronovo, Filippo Cesarano, Pierluigi Ciocca, Franco Cotula, Alberto Cova, Guido M. Rey and Gianni Toniolo.
