Gromo Losa Palace
A jewel in the heart of Biella Piazzo
Situated in the heart of the historic village of Biella Piazzo, the Gromo Losa Palace is a modern exhibition centre but also an original container of cultural and social projects owned by the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Biella, which acquired the building in 2004 and promoted its complete restoration. The exhibition spaces periodically host art and photography exhibitions, often staged together with the nearby Ferrero and La Marmora Palaces, with which Gromo Losa Palace forms the Cultural Centre of Biella Piazzo. Among the most important events of recent years are the Henri Cartier-Bresson exhibitions. Sam, Lilette and Sébastien Szafran Collection.

Michelangelo Pistoletto. Father and Son in collaboration with Cittadellarte - Fondazione Pistoletto and Fondazione Zegna (2019) and the latest editions of Selvatica - Arte e Natura in Festival.
The jewel in the palace's crown is undoubtedly the Italian garden dedicated to the theme of the rose, created in 2012 by Biella patron Emanuele Rosa and now cared for by Palazzo Gromo Losa Srl. Roses of various species adorn a long pergola in the centre of the garden, reminiscent of the warp and woof of a fabric. In the centre of the flowerbeds, bordered by low boxwood hedges, are water basins moved by foaming jets. The roses and other botanical species ensure a constant flowering from May to November.
