Abstract: The scope of this article is twofold: firstly, it explores the application of “trust” as a heuristic category. Secondly, it examines how the Roman Monte di Pietà was established as a reliable and trustworthy Christian institution. Applying different approaches due to Ogilvie, Luhmann, etc. the paper shows the Monte as a trustworthy institution of urban elites using professional personnel as well as a strict accounting system. This institutionalisation process was accompanied by a discourse led by Franciscan authors, thematizing a Christian economic ethics, and marginalising Jewish moneylenders. Thus, trust in the institution was not only based on its successful ad-ministration but also on religious aspects.
Translation of the abstract: Questo articolo discute la categoria euristica di “fiducia” e la applica al Monte di Pietà di Roma in quanto istituzione affidabile e degna di fiducia. Rifacendosi a metodologie di Ogilvie, Luhmann, etc. l’articolo presenta la fondazione del Monte come progetto di elite urbane che facevano uso di personale professionale e di un severo sistema di endicontazione. Questo processo di istituzionalizzazione procedeva in parallelo ad un dibattito, portato avanti da autori Francescani, che mirava a sviluppare un’e tica economica cristiana e a marginalizzare i prestasoldi ebrei. Dunque, la fiducia goduta da questa istituzione era connessa a motivi religiosi non meno che alla sua amministrazione efficiente. (Italian)
