  • Bezzera Emblem- What is it?

    Hi,

    I was studying the emblem that comes on the Bezzera machines and I cant figure out exactly what it is. Does anyone know?

    Its a snake or dragon swallowing a person. (Google found a non-stylised version!)
    Now lets have an expert tell is the symbology.

      Its fairly easilly established that the Symbol were talking about is the Biscione, the Heraldic Symbol for the Visconti family of Italy.

      Its also been regarded as a symbol of Milan, Which is where the Bezzera company originated.

      You can also see the same snake/person symbol in the badge of Alfa Romeo, also originally from Milan.

        Its depicted in Mayan cultures


        Also Jason & The Argonauts
