To mark World Savings Day on 31 October 2018, the Museum of Saving in Turin, in collaboration with the Gallerie d’Italia and the Intesa Sanpaolo Group (through the Banca dei Territori, Historic Archives and foreign banks), will host the third edition of The Art of Saving.
From 24 to 31 October, primary and secondary schools will be invited to visit the museum and attend laboratories aimed at helping young people to think about money management and the meaning of saving. A wide variety of free events are being held in Turin, Milan, Naples, Vicenza and Padua.
The programme will travel abroad to Albania, Bosnia-Hercegovina, Croatia, Egypt, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Hungary: laboratories created by the Museum of Saving will be repeated in the 10 host countries of the foreign banks of the Intesa Sanpaolo Group.
There will be conferences and events for adults, too (see the programmes of the Museum of Saving).
How to World Savings Day start?
It all began in 1924 during the celebrations for the centenary (1823-1923) of the Cassa di Risparmio delle Provincie Lombarde (CARIPLO – savings banks of the Lombardy provinces) in a major international meeting held in Milan.
Savings banks from 27 countries attended to analyse the institutions and instruments to collect and manage savings.
To commemorate this first global convention, it was decided that 31 October – closing day of the event – should become the day to celebrate savings worldwide.
