Italy became a member of the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development — the World Bank — in 1947. Italy was among the first countries to get a loan to help rebuild its economy after the Second World War. Today, Italy is a member of the five institutions that form the World Bank Group. Italy and the World Bank work with other member governments to finance projects, design policies, and deliver programs to eradicate poverty in the developing world.
