Fondazione Ansaldo


This section contains a brief list of the archives acquired from various enterprises, bodies and persons.

The archive is the basic descriptive level. When the structure of a group of documents is particularly complex, with multiple archives joined by restrictions which must be respected and highlighted, a hierarchically superior "base" archive level has been used. In the case of archives with particularly complex structures, a level which describes the series or collection, below the base level, has been used.

The elements present in the description are as follows: base archive name, archive name, name of the series or collection, description of the series or collection, size, date. More specifically:

  • The base archive name is located in the centre of the page. Given the many parties who have produced the archives and the documents making up the base archive, the name used may be that used habitually or may coincide with that of the company, organisation or person who contributed the documentation
  • The name of the archive is located in the centre of the page when not included in a base archive; otherwise it is located at the margin of the page The name adopted usually corresponds to the name of the party who produced and/or provided the documents, and it is therefore not impossible for discrepancies to exist between the name of the archive and its actual configuration; in any case, indications are given on the formation of the complete group of documents
  • The name of the series is given on the margin of the page; the name, size, start and end dates and a brief description of the contents are given for each series. Subseries are not listed here
  • The name of the collection is also located on the margin of the page; for each collection, like the series, the name, size, start and end dates and a brief description of the contents are given
  • The name of the archive, series or collection is followed by the size usually indicated with the term envelopes and registers. Please note that the base archival unit is the file
  • The date of the archives, series and collections is given in brackets immediately after the size. In the archive description, this location highlights the fact that the date refers to the documents and not to the party which produced them. In the presence of significant gaps, the start and end dates have been divided into two pairs
  • The date is followed by the method of confirmation available to the researchers. This may be the inventory (analytical or summary, depending on the level of analysis performed on the description of the individual archival unit) or the list (lists, which are not always ordered, of the archival or conservation units making up the archive).

Finally, each archive has summary historical and institutional notes purely for the purpose of understanding the producer and indications of the preserved documentation.
