The agreement with ATB also establishes an intensification of public transport services on some lines to the university buildings in Via dei Caniana in Bergamo and in Dalmine (UniBG Shuttle).
In the beginning of the 1950s, an industrial building complex was built in an area between Via San Bernardino and Via Moroni, which in the mid-1980s was transformed by the group of architects Poli-Mambretti-Traversi-Travisa into the tertiary service center of the then Banca Provinciale Lombarda. The walls are made of insulated aluminum sheets, which give the building a perfectly linear shape, while the facade stands out due to the main entrance, where the large portal creates a frame around the bow window of the stairwell and the large reticular canopy. Our University purchased it after BPL was yielded in 1987 and then acquired by the San Paolo Institute in Turin in 1993, maintaining the internal rooms substantially unchanged and dedicating the main hall to Serio Galeotti, dean of the university in the period 1972-1975, who first established the degree in Economics and Trade.
