Currently it preserves in 44 folders, about 13,200 pieces, mainly letters from various senders between the second half of the XVII century and the early XX century. There are also handwritten cards of various genre like notes, reports, statements. Among these, worthy of mention is an autograph account by Giuseppe Garibaldi, originally housed in the Nascimbene Stock, regarding certain military and naval actions carried out along the coast of Brazil between 1839 and 1840.

Of particular interest two letters by Ugo Foscolo, one by Vincenzo Monti, two by Peter Metastasio, two by Ippolito Pindemonte, two by Cavour and some by Lazzaro Spallanzani.
