History

The company was founded in 1962 in Bologna as a cooperative provider of non-life insurance. After a failed takeover bid for Banca Nazionale del Lavoro in 2005,[3] Unipol saw its CEO Giovanni Consorte resign in the midst of the bancopoli scandal. Consorte was later convicted for insider trading.[4] Under Consorte's replacements Pierluigi Stefanini and Carlo Salvatori, the company underwent extensive restructuring in 2007.
