History

The Borsa di commercio di Milano (Milan Stock Exchange) was established by Eugène de Beauharnais, viceroy of the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy, through decrees dated 16 January and 6 February 1808. It operated under public ownership until 1998, when it was privatized. In 1997, all the Italian stocks were merged. Before that year, other smaller stocks exchanges were based in Naples, Turin, Trieste, Venice, Genoa, Florence, Bologna, Rome, and Palermo. In 1991, the electronic exchanges were approved, and in 1994, the market with grids (A,B,C) was abolished. In Milan were also the currencies exchange rates fixing and the commodities fixing. On 1 October 2007, Borsa Italiana was merged with the London Stock Exchange in an all-share takeover, thus becoming part of the London Stock Exchange Group. In March 2016, the London Stock Exchange Group announced the agreement to merge in an all-stock deal with Deutsche Borse, but was subsequently blocked by the EU Competition Regulator.competitionpolicyinternational.com,

On 18 September 2020, the London Stock Exchange Group entered into exclusive talks to sell the Italian Bourse to Euronext. On 29 April 2021, following the entry of CDP Equity and Intesa San Paolo (Italian institutional investors) as shareholders of Euronext, the European group assumed control of the company.
