At the CARIPLO Bank of Domaso were kept the secret documents taken from Benito Mussolini on 27 April 1945. They were put there by the Partisan Pedro and Horfman a Swiss-British double agent. Winston Churchill visited there, looking for some of the missing documents on September 7, 1945, and went to have a tea with the bank's manager Ermanno Gibezzi. He had it in his home, ignoring that he had been recently appointed there. The real director that had seen the documents, Luigi Rumi, had retired a few weeks before.
