Over 100 bank buildings open their doors across Italy.
The 16th edition of Invito a Palazzo offers the public a glimpse inside the head offices of a variety of Italy’s banks, free of charge, on Saturday 7 October.
The 102 buildings on show in 52 cities across the country represent a wide variety of architectural styles, from the mediaeval and baroque to contemporary, and it is also possible to see their gardens, cellars, archives, works of art, and libraries.
This year eight banks in six Roman buildings open their doors, including the new headquarters of BNL at the Palazzo Orizzonte Europa – see list below. Guided tours take place between 10.00 and 19.00. For more information, tel. 066767400 or see the Associazione Bancaria Italiana (ABI) website.
