Amadeo Peter Giannini, founder of the Bank of Italy - now the Bank of America - was born at 79 N. Market St. on May 6, 1870. Perhaps San Jose's most famous native, Giannini is considered by many to be the greatest figure in American banking. A liberal in a conservative field, he revolutionized and humanized banking practices, creating the world's largest and most powerful branch-banking system while maintaining his commitment to the ideal of equal treatment and opportunity for all people.
