A Bank
for 50 years together with you

A history of cooperation,
solidarity and shared development.

5 years
of growth together

A solid, close group - ours.




We believe it is the values
of solidarity and participation,
which stimulate the economic
and social progress of every territory.
On these foundations, on 28 February, 50 years ago,
Cassa Centrale Banca was born.



The Gruppo Bancario Cassa Centrale Banca is set up:
the completion of a cooperative growth process
which saw the agreements among the
Federations of Trentino, Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia
and partnerships with the banks of the North-East.
This is the scenario in which it joins the shareholding structure of DZ Bank:
this collaboration marks an important bond
between German and Italian cooperative traditions,
promoting a spirit of transnational solidarity.



With the reform of Credito Cooperativo in 2016,
the solidity of everything we have built
enabled us to face and overcome a new challenge:
that of evolving, but while maintaining our identity and our values.



The 1-billion Euro capital threshold is reached
as envisaged by the Credito Cooperativo reform law.
A concrete and very tangible result, bearing witness to the trust
of all the Banks in the project.
An important instrument which enables us to guarantee
solidity and stability to all our Shareholders,
strengthens our mission to develop and grow the territory.



The first Gruppo Bancario Cooperativo is set up in Italy:
which brings together banks, companies and the parent company
under a common identity, in a modern structure which looks to the future.

On 1 January 2024 Gruppo Cassa Centrale
celebrates 5 years since its foundation.
On 28 February 2024 Cassa Centrale Banca
celebrates 50 years since its creation.


Common good

This story has been written
thanks to the commitment of the people who every day
put their trust in their community and in the value of collaboration.
They are the fragments of all these lives
which have made, and will continue to make, the history

The goal, today as yesterday, is to promote
the wellbeing of people and the development of the territories where we live.

“…it is thanks to our common “pioneering” spirit if we have managed to realise the dream of creating a Group all of our own and of overcoming the objective difficulties which have characterised the socioeconomic scenario in recent years.”
