For the second year in Paris and Nancy and the first year in Brussels, the public went in search of European architectural heritage and the history of BNP Paribas. Members of Group staff volunteered to welcome the 4,000 visitors who discovered the architecture and historical background of these exceptional buildings during the guided visits.
Visitors were won over by the three magnificent sites featuring mosaics, gilding, stained-glass windows, exotic wood counters, tapestries and paintings, and appreciated the route of the visit of these buildings which are usually closed to the general public. The photo booth made available to people at the end of the visit (in Paris and Nancy) was also a real success, giving visitors a memento of their tour of the BNP Paribas sites.
The second edition of this event was a true success. It reflected the constant interest of the general public (more than 4,000 visitors in 2012) in the Group's heritage.
Then, on 5 October, BNL will unveil three other splendid sites, in Rome, Venice, and Bari, as part of the 12th edition of the Invito a Palazzo (“Invitation to the Building”) programme, an annual event open to the public organised across Italy by the ABI (Italian Banking Association).
Rome – BNL's headquarters
Venice – Palazzo Pellanda
Bari – Palazzo Pascoletti
