Unipol changes its registered office
The Company has the need to acquire larger and more dignified corporate headquarters. On 29 November, the Board chooses the historic “Palazzo del Cane” in Via Oberdan 24, as a property suitable for the Company’s growing needs.
The building takes its name from the statue of a big dog (cane in Italian, TN) that from a window sill looks out on in the interior courtyard, and recalls a singular episode. In the eighteenth century, returning home after a long absence, Marquis De’ Buoi, owner of the building, happened to see his dog jump out of the window as a sign of joy for the reappearance of its master; the dog died from injuries, and the Marquis erected the stone sculpture in its memory, which gave its name to the building.
The same Board meeting decides to purchase the shares of the real estate company “Nuova Nomentana” in Rome, owner of the building that houses the National League of Cooperatives (Via Guattani 9).
