Declaration of significant historic interest of 13/03/2006

Acquired in two separate lots from Ilva S.p.A. in October 1993 and Iritecna S.p.A. in November 1999 this archive, which reflects the complex corporate, organisational and production histories of the businesses operating in the public steel sector, has undergone subject cataloguing and initial reorganisation thanks to the collaboration of the Archival Superintendency of the Region of Liguria.

IThe Ilva archive is composed of 6,558 items (envelopes, registers and volumes) relating to the period 1882-1993, and includes:

  • The archives of the parent company "Ilva Altiforni e Acciaierie d'Italia", "Italsider", "Ilva";
  • The archives of 40 subsidiary and/or associate companies
  • The archives of the Novi Ligure and Savona plants
  • The surviving documentation from 8 subsidiary and/or associate companies

The archive includes a collection of print publications and a collection of Finsider documentation, subsequently acquired from the Genoa headquarters of Ilva SpA in receivership.

The archive has undergone various mishaps meaning it has lost any real sense of organisation, and therefore the inventory entitled "Archivio Storico Nuova Italsider" prepared in 1985 by Luciano Segreto is no longer reliable.

For all archives, the name, size, chronological details, historical/institutional notes and document types are listed below.

For a description at the individual archival unit level of what is summarised here, please see the cards available in the Foundation's study room.
