100,000,000 lire: treasure or colored pieces of paper?

The Italian during the repair of the apartment of her long-dead uncle found 100 million lire. But the Bank of Italy refuses to exchange them for the euro

Aludia Moretti found one hundred million lire in her uncle's house in Viterbo, but found that now their value is almost zero. “Banknotes of 100 thousand lire were packed in a metal box hidden among antique furniture, 42-year-old Italian woman, operator of the Pesaro call center, told reporters. My mother inherited this apartment many years ago, but only recently we started to bring it to order. And suddenly such a find. We didn’t even immediately believe that it really was. But when they called the Bank of Italy to find out how much euro we could receive, we were told that it was too late. "

"A woman, due to the death of her maternal uncle, who died several years ago and did not have a wife and children, inherited, among other things, an apartment in Viterbo, explain to Agitalia, the Association of Justice in Italy. A peculiar picture was found in the room during repair work a safe containing documents, personal letters and an amount of 100 million lire. Imagine the amazement and joy of a woman when she found all this money. "

But great joy was followed by equally great disappointment. When Aludia went to the Bank of Italy to exchange lira for the euro, the Italian was told there that her banknotes no longer have any value. Since the euro came into force in Italy more than 10 years ago, today the lira is already considered a depreciated currency.

However, the woman did not back down and filed an official petition with Agitalia in order to force the Bank of Italy to pay her an amount equivalent to the find. And this is neither more nor less 51 645 euro.

“Of course, on the one hand, the 10-year period stipulated by the state for the exchange of lira for the euro ended in 2012. Theoretically, they say in the Association. However, on the other hand, technically, for Signora Moretti, this period only began when she discovered the money, when she legally got the opportunity to request a currency exchange. Finally, jurisprudence in most cases is tolerant of the timing of the execution of various regulations, taking into account various external conditions and the time when the subject is able to exercise his right. "

"Our Association is mainly involved in withdrawing money from old bank accounts and mail transfers. More information can be found on the website www.agitalia.info, where the section" Frequently Asked Questions "explains how to get money from old bank and postal funds. accounts. "
