Did you know Bank of Italy stems from a small operation consisting of loaning money to displaced citizens of San Francisco after a major fire?
Did you know that the bank of Italy began a credit system using a "Credit card" that became known as "Visa?"
Did you know that the Bank of Italy changed it's name to the Bank of America to improve reception?
