Social Initiatives

Intesa Sanpaolo's social work began with philanthropic banking foundations and over the years has increasingly deepened its involvement across the country. In recent years, the Group has completely reworked its approach to solidarity, charity and benevolent initiatives and has provided a staunch backing for social interventions. We want to take action, take care, breathe in new life. We want to respond to old and new needs, rising to social challenges, including the fight against poverty, health, disability, new lifestyles, accommodation, education, and the ageing population. We want to tell you the stories of men and women in a changing world.

"Intesa Sanpaolo views the concept of value creation through a very broad lens. The fact that we’re one of the most solid and profitable banks in Europe means that we are a driving force behind the social economy of our country and must promote efforts to increase economic inclusion and fight poverty.”


Carlo Messina

CEO and Managing Director of Intesa Sanpaolo
