An accordion-fold photo album bound in gold-stamped leather and decorated within an oil painting of a feminine figure with flowers, dated April 27, 1892. This gift was donated by staff at the transportation insurance division at the Head Office in Trieste to Antonio Kenda (head of division) upon retirement. Anniversary celebrations have always been important moments for Generali, for its shareholders and partners as well as its own employees, executives and directors. No mere excuse for a party, these, rather they were historical milestones that formed part of the company’s identity and an opportunity to mark an achievement and seal its value over time. These are the well-wishes that appear in the pages of the jubilee books, received and donated by Generali on special days. They are not only photo albums, but also congratulatory certificates, usually written on parchment with different handcrafted designs by artists. Some are adorned with the heraldic coat of arms of their city of provenance and generally bound in leather with engravings or decorations in gold. In some cases, they were even embellished with precious metals or gemstones.
