European Money Week: The Museo del Risparmio and the international banks of the Intesa Sanpaolo Group will participate in the initiative

The Museo del Risparmio (Museum of Saving) and the international banks of the Intesa Sanpaolo Group are taking part in the European Banking Federation’s European Money Week from 12 to 16 March. This annual initiative, which takes place every March, gives a European dimension to financial education and is particularly aimed at young people.

The Museo del Risparmio (Museum of Saving) and the international banks of the Intesa Sanpaolo Group are taking part in the European Banking Federation’s European Money Week from 12 to 16 March. This annual initiative, which takes place every March, gives a European dimension to financial education and is particularly aimed at young people.

The 2018 edition of European Money Week sees the participation of the international banks of the Intesa Sanpaolo Group with initiatives for schools and families in Croatia, Serbia, Hungary and Albania, in collaboration with the local National Banking Associations. Ignacio Jaquotot, the head of the Intesa Sanpaolo International Subsidiary Banks Division, said: “I am very happy that Intesa Sanpaolo is able to make a contribution towards the financial education of young people in the countries where Group’s banks are present. In particular, I would like to thank the large number of employees who volunteered their time in bringing to life the plethora of educational initiatives at a local level.” These initiatives will involve a large number of primary and secondary schools, with workshops, meetings with professionals and finance experts, and visits to museums and banks, all delivered thanks to the commitment of a large number of banks’ employees.

In Serbia, Banca Intesa will mark the European Money Week in cooperation with the Association of Serbian Banks (UBS). On March 13, Banca Intesa employees will hold interactive workshops for around 60 boys and girls attending elementary schools in Belgrade selected by the UBS in order to introduce them with basic financial terms and encourage the development of responsible financial choices from an early age, thereby providing contribution to the long-term sustainability of the financial market in Serbia. Activities that will be carried out as part of the European Money Week will be placed under the “Know How to Save” financial education program umbrella, which Banca Intesa launched in 2017.

The initiatives of the Museo del Risparmio during the European Money Week are also part of the Econo-mix Festival promoted by the Finance and Savings Education Foundation (FEDUF) together with the participants in the Economic Awareness (CONSECON) project. During the week, the Museum will promote several initiatives for schools in its Via San Francesco d’Assisi premises in Turin. Young people will be able to become tax inspectors for a day (in partnership with the Tax Agency), learn how to manage their personal finances, study the different types of work contract (together with the INPS National Social Security Institute), and reflect on the consequences of economic choices on the perception of risk (together with the Turin Finance Committee and the University of East Piedmont). On Sunday 18 March there will be an event for children and families to conclude the program: this will be an artistic workshop inspired by piggy banks, of which the Museum has a collection of 1500 on show.
