A large series of industrial buildings of the fifties and a monumental Rose Pergola on one side: this new entrance was a project made by the company. This great Architectural structure makes a great impact to underline the energy and the new style of the company. With new impact of the image Bisazza, now taking fruit of the road begun in 2000 with the newly elected administrator Piero Bisazza.
The curves of the pergola have been covered with precious mosaic which is illuminated by a series of lights encased in the floor, which give you the shape and colours of beautiful old English Roses.
Passing through the glass door, the entrance hall is marked from two great trees, placed symmetrically, that together with the zenithal light and to the bower roses re-interpret the space created for the courtyard and the internal cloister.
The reception is constituted from a wide central space delimited from a side by an high climbing of roses and from other side from the counter on which four lamps in steel and in glass are leaned.
The reception with in the middle the counter covered in woven white gold.
From the reception leading to areas dedicated to interviews and work, where time after time the fabric of the chairs and walls take on one color.

The Black Room with a central panel decorated in mosaic from the series ''Canova'' : ''...I searched for a conclusion of the long prospective that had inspired Shinkel of columns and doors Neo Egyptian.
