Banca di Roma S.p.A. was formed by the merger of Banco di Santo Spirito, Banco di Roma and Cassa di Risparmio di Roma. In 1991 the banking section of Cassa di Risparmio di Roma was absorbed by Banco di Santo Spirito, as Legge Amato required all saving banks of Italy (Italian: Cassa di Risparmio) had to transform into S.p.A. (company limited by shares). The owner, Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Roma, chose not to form an independent bank but a holding company "Cassa di Risparmio di Roma Holding" (aka Società Italiana di Partecipazioni Bancarie).[4] In 1992 Banco di Santo Spirito was merged with Banco di Roma to form Banca di Roma (changing the name from Banco to the more modern form Banca).[5] In 1992 the bank acquired a minority interests in Cassa di Risparmio della Provincia dell'Aquila,[6] which was sold in 1998.

Banca di Roma absorbed subsidiary "Banca di Roma Holding" in 1994.[7]
