ilCartastorie, the museum at the Banco di Napoli Historical Archives, was created as a way to allow the public access to the enormous patrimony of documents from the ancient Neapolitan public banks. Within these documents are nearly 17 million names, hundreds of thousands of payments, along with detailed reasons for payment which paint a fascinating picture of Naples and all of Southern Italy during the past 450 years, from 1573 to today.

ilCartastorie, in a myriad of ways, from multimedia exhibits to creative writing workshops, effectively brings back the voices, the stories and the historical events which have been immortalized in the pages of the large tomes found at the Archives.
