FOR THE WORLD SAVINGS DAY

INTESA SANPAOLO PROMOTES INITIATIVES THROUGHOUT ITALY 
AND IN MANY FOREIGN COUNTRIES UNDER THE TITLE THE ART OF SAVING

• Guided tours, workshops, educational tours, themed meetings and exhibitions 
• The Italian cities involved include Turin, Milan, Naples, Vicenza, Padua and Trento.  
• Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Egypt, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Ukraine and Hungary are among the countries that joined the 2019 edition
• With the contribution of: the Museum of Saving, Gallerie d’Italia, the Intesa Sanpaolo Historical Archives, the International Subsidiary Banks and Banca dei Territori

Turin, 18 October 2019 - The Intesa Sanpaolo Group is once again proposing a wide programme of events and initiatives for the World Savings Day, which will take place in many Italian cities and abroad, in the countries where the Bank operates directly or through its subsidiaries. The programme goes by the name The Art of Saving because saving is also a skill that can be learned and that, like all human activities, can have a creative side. The idea was launched by the Museum of Saving, which has turned it into an educational and recreational mission, with activities for every age group and level of preparation, especially for those who are just starting out. 
The 2019 edition sees the involvement of Banca dei Territori, Gallerie d'Italia and the Group's Historical Archives, with proposals in several cities: Turin, Milan, Naples, Vicenza, Padua and Trento.
The Art of Saving has also become an eagerly awaited appointment in Albania (with Intesa Sanpaolo Bank Albania), Bosnia and Herzegovina (with Intesa Sanpaolo Bank BiH), Croatia (with PBZ), Egypt (with Alexbank), Russia (with Banca Intesa Russia), Serbia (with Banca Intesa Beograd), Slovakia (with VUB), Ukraine (with Pravex Bank) and Hungary (with CIB). These are the countries in which the Group's International Subsidiary Banks Division has promoted the event and which every year gather enthusiastic support from households, schools and volunteers from the local Banks that support the programme. 
The complete schedule of the Art of Saving is already online www.museodelrisparmio.it and www.gallerieditalia.com.

As stated by Intesa Sanpaolo Chairman Gian Maria Gros-Pietro, “with 9,743 billion euro worth of wealth, the Italians truly have the art of saving in their DNA. For some years now we have chosen to celebrate 31 October, the World Savings Day, with a proposal that involves a wide audience, to remind them that saving means having confidence in the future and projects to achieve. Hence the idea of proposing a week packed full of events and initiatives that can bring people closer to the conscious management of money, not only for themselves but also for their community. We are very proud of our ability to involve so many of the Group's structures and entities in the project, including abroad".
