Abstract

The Mansutti Foundation was set up in Milan in 2004. It’s a cultural institution whose aim is to safeguard, exploit, and share its heritage which consists of four collections: more than 6000 ancient and modern volumes, 300 posters, more than 2500 insurance policies and approximately 900 fire marks.
The common denominator is the history of insurance, which is widely documented from an economic, juridical, technical, and social point of view, from its origins to the present day.
This heritage is an important reference point for analysis and historical research in the field of insurance, thus giving fundamental support to experts.
The specificity of the material in the possession of the Mansutti Foundation gives it a prominent position among the public and private institutions dedicated to the history of insurance, which, as is well-known, had its roots in Italy.
