The Historical Archive of INA is managed by an internal team of specialized archivists and covers a timespan of a hundred years, namely from 1912 (Company’s foundation) to 2013.
The INA archive comprises all documents produced by the Company’s top management and governing bodies as both a public and a private company, together with the papers created by various internal departments. Among these latter collections, the following are particularly worthy of note:
The Colonies Fonds (1930-1969), pertaining to INA’s building activities in the territories of former Italian colonies;
The Historical Real Estate Fonds (1912-1992), the collection most frequently consulted by architects and researchers at national and international level, as it is the largest documentary source covering all building construction work since the Company’s foundation. In many cases, the administrative and technical papers are unique documents by the most famous Italian architects;
