On December 6, 1945 the board of directors of Comit (Banca Commerciale Italiana) nominated as chairman of the bank Camillo Giussani, who was for over thirty years its legal consultant. The Giussani chairmanship thus started in a difficult economic and financial situation and overlapped with the years of reconstruction and then with the "economic miracle" (Giussani died in February 1960). The Historical Archives of Intesa Sanpaolo preserve Camillo Giussani’s papers, a documentary heritage that only recently has been made accessible to scholars. While the research on Giussani as business lawyer has already produced significant results, the documentation regarding the years of chairmanship has been thus far completely unexplored. This article aims to shed light on Giussani as a banker. This analysis brings out his role as agent for the bank, his individual reputation and social esteem, the extensive network of relations that the lawyer/banker managed to set up over time.
Keywords: Camillo Giussani, Banca Commerciale Italiana, lawyer, banker, biography, history of banking.
