The opening of the School of Commerce of Palermo was a major innovation to the educational system of the city and came about through an initiative of the Chamber of Commerce, which entrusted the material realization of the school to the Venetian professor Romeo Lovera. The event also highlighted the intertwined economic interests of local traders and the initial attempt to induce the Chamber to exercise strict control over the school to put it at the service of local needs. Instead, the decision to make the institution conform to the national model prevailed. The school earned the right to add the title "Royal" to its name in 1907.
