The “CESIFIN ALBERTO PREDIERI” Foundation was established in 1986 by the Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze.
Alberto Predieri, who conceived and promoted this institution, was its President for many years. After his death in 2001, the Foundation was named after him.
The aim and activity of the Foundation, financed by the Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze since 2001, is the promotion of studies and conferences on juridical-financial themes and economics in our times, topics of extreme current interest on which scholars and experts from the business and institutional world are called on to present their views.
The conferences and seminars in many cases have been the subject of publications of great interest to the public on matters of concern within the country: the liberalization of foreign currency, the reform of the financial markets, the independence of the administrative authorities, European structural funds, corporate governance, the international monetary system.
