On the road with the Bank of Italy: Financial culture – People - Institutions

On the road with the Bank of Italy” is a journey through our country with several stops, aimed at promoting financial literacy, explaining the central bank's role, and fostering direct dialogue with people, businesses and institutions. What is inflation and how does it affect our wallets? How can you invest your savings while managing risks? What tools can protect you in your dealings with banks? What should you be cautious about when applying for a loan? How do different payment methods work, and who ensures their proper functioning? Who protects our savings and how? These are some of the questions addressed during the ‘On the road with the Bank of Italy’ meetings. The goal is to raise awareness of the fundamental economic and financial topics that are essential for effectively managing money and navigating current economic and financial events. Each stop is also an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the Bank of Italy and the work it does for individuals and the community, at local, national and international level.
