In 1972 Münchener Rück Servizi Tecnici S.r.l. was established in Milan as the first representative office of the German reinsurance company Münchener Rückversicherungs-Gesellschaft of Munich, with a view to becoming an active player on the Italian market.

In 1992 the representative office became an independent subsidiary under the name Münchener Rück Italia S.p.A.

During the course of 1999 we further strengthened our position with the merger by acquisition of Torino Riassicurazioni S.p.A. (ex Reale Riassicurazioni S.p.A., Reale Mutua Group)

Our company’s expansion has involved a continuous increase in specialization and number of staff members.

Subsequently the company underwent a significant corporate reorganisation that in January 2009 lead to the merger of Münchener Rück Italia S.p.A. into Münchener Rückversicherungs-Gesellschaft AG, with registered office in Munich. The aim was to enhance the company’s efficiency and reinsurance capacity to better provide for the Italian market. Munich Re, Italy is now a Branch, i.e. Rappresentanza Generale per l’Italia.
