Crespi d'Adda, Capriate San Gervasio
(3.9/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
Savor the history of Crespi d'Adda, a World Heritage-listed "company town" that is still functioning--although its future is unclear. Company towns were developed in the 19th and 20th centuries in North America and Europe to satisfy the needs of industrial workers--nearly all jobs and facilities were provided by a singular company. While the historical settlement still thrives, changing economic and social conditions threaten its existence. Today's residents are mostly descendants of the original workers, but keep an eye out for the textile factory and the strikingly red Crespis Castle.

  • UNESCO represents the vision of industrial textile Crespi family who wanted to build an "ideal village" self-sufficient for its workers. Definitely a futuristic vision that guaranteed to employees in addition to the work, a cutting-edge social context. To visit!

  • Definitely a destination for lovers of late 19th century architecture. Even the historical context tells a forgotten world and deserves to be rediscovered. Probably would be better cared for and sponsored as a cultural tourism destination.
