- an iconographic archive, composed of more than 50.000 prints and more than 3.000 posters, mainly characterized by images documenting the institutional activity of cooperative bodies and associations (conventions, congresses, celebrations) and of some complete photographic archives of enterprises referring to working pictures, realized works, moments of social live.
Of particular interest there is finally the photographic archive of Editrice Cooperativa, datable from the beginning of years nineteen fifty to 1970.
The quantity of the archival documentation that the Centre collected during its own institutional activity has grown so much as to make necessary the acquisition of a new deposit meeting the requirements of the correct conservation of documentary materials, guaranteeing over time the possibility of a further increase of space. In 2016 the complete transfer of the funds conserved in the new deposit premises located in the PAS - Polo Archivistico Storico of Vignola. The reordering of new spaces allowed a convenient relocation of the materials. The square footage available for the Centre has grown. The conservation conditions of the documentation and handling of the materials deposited were approved by the Superintendency for Archival properties of Emilia-Romagna and by the Ministry of cultural properties and activities.
