Historical collections: a precious source of inspiration for looking into the future


Bocconi University historical collections include documents published from the dawn of printing up to the 20th century. These collections document how the Library, starting from a small nucleus of 1,200 volumes donated by the Milan Chamber of Commerce when the University was founded in 1902, grew to become the most specialized economic library in Italy and one of the richest in Europe within a few decades.

In the dedicated section of the Library website, enriched with images and unpublished content, you can find a series of highlights to discover the most precious treasures of the Library.
