Based on the researches carried out by the Centro di studi sui Monti di Pietà e sul Credito Solidaristico, Mons Pietatis aims to conduct a mapping of European ethical credit institutions and to describe their archives and history, as well as to provide updated information on studies and research activities on this topic.
Established in 2001 at the Fondazione del Monte di Bologna e Ravenna, Centro di Studi curates a specialised library and organises meetings and initiatives to disseminate scientific knowledge about ethical credit organisations and institutions, in particular the Monti di Pietà, which were established in Italy from the second half of the 15th century.
