Archive Istituto Mazziniano

The documentary collections preserved in the Istituto are a fundamental point of reference for historical research.

Created by Arturo Codignola with criteria which no longer meet the dictates of contemporary archival theory (as entire series of documents were then taken from the Historical Archive of the Municipality), it was first catalogued with scientific rigour by Bianca Montale, when she was director of the Istituto Mazzini (1956-1970).

In 2011, on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the Unification of Italy, the identification and computerised filing of documents was completed, sponsored by the Istituto in collaboration with and under the general supervision of the Archival Superintendency for Liguria, and entirely financed by the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage.
