Fondazione Bisazza

A continuing heritage of contemporary beauty

One of the world’s leading brands in the design sector, the essence of Bisazza lies in the fusion of creativity and absolute luxury that culminates in the most beautiful glass mosaic for interior and exterior decoration.

Established by Renato Bisazza in 1956, Bisazza first began producing mosaic tiles in Alte Vicenza, Northern Italy. Set halfway between Venice and Lake Garda there is no more inspiring location, which explains why the company’s headquarters remains in this iconic setting today.

From the very beginning Bisazza became a trailblazer in glass mosaic, set apart by the founder’s entrepreneurial spirit, love of design, and mastery of evolving technologies.

Since 2005, Bisazza has been an integral part of Fondazione Altagamma. Alongside stable-mates such as Gucci, Ferrari and Versace, the association advocates leading Italian businesses and their underlying culture, to the rest of the world. It is a celebration of Italian ‘finezza.’
