Merger with Unicredit
In May 2007, plans were finalized for the buyout of Capitalia by its larger Italian rival, Unicredit. All banks of the Capitalia group in Northern Italy will be reconfigured as Unicredit banks; in turn, all Unicredit banks in the rest of Italy will be reconfigured as either Banca di Roma banks (rest of mainland Italy and Sardinia) or as Banco di Sicilia banks (in Sicily only).
