ROME--Former UniCredit SpA (>> UniCredit SpA) Chief Executive Alessandro Profumo and 19 other bank officials will have to stand trial for their role in agreeing "Brontos," a financial swap, that investigators say was designed to avoid taxes.

Laura Marchiondelli, a judge in Milan, indicted Profumo--who is now Chairman of Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena SpA (>> Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena SpA) and the others Tuesday, accepting the request of prosecutors led by Alfredo Robledo, MF-Dow Jones reported.

The trial's first hearing was set for Oct. 1.

Mr. Profumo and UniCredit have both stated that they acted correctly in the Brontos deal, which was similar to structured-finance transactions entered into by most Italian banks in recent years.

The Milan court had impounded EUR245 million from UniCredit when the charges first emerged last year, but has since released those funds.
