Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Lombardy / Province of Bergamo / Capriate San Gervasio / Crespi d'Adda
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.

Da molto tempo volevo visitare il villaggio operaio di Crespi d'Adda patrimonio Unesco dal 1995. Ho approfittato per farlo in occasione di un viaggio a Milano. E' facile arrivarci utilizzando i mezzi ... more »For a long time I wanted to visit the workers ' village of Crespi d'Adda heritage site since 1995. I took the opportunity to do so during a trip to Milan. It's easy to get there by public transport. Metro 2 to the end of the line Gessate, then bus to Trezzo sull'adda (frequent). After a night in a bed and breakfast in Trezzo, within a 2 km along the Adda, I came to Crespi. I had booked the guided tour "Crespi Cultura", deserving of Volunteers Association (locals who know the history of the village, and descendants of those who had worked in the factory, our guide Luisa showed us the House where his grandparents had lived). "Crespi Cultura" also leads battles for the preservation of this place (is currently raising funds to save from degradation and from private speculation the old "lavatoio" that the Charity had built why women fail to get to the River to wash clothes). The guided tour is absolutely essential to know the history of Crespi d'Adda, the ideas that were moving entrepreneurs "illuminati" in the second half of the 800 building workers ' villages, as there were workers, because of their decline and what have become now. Essential buying a small guide published by "Crespi Cultura", costs 5 euros and is a great complement to the explanations of the guides. I would recommend even for the modest cost of a few euros other small booklets available from the "dot Info" which is where the Charity had built the school, which gave great importance being the little schoolboys future workers of their factory. Near the school, had built the Church, to which similar importance was attributed. I regret that our precious heritage from every point of view has not yet sufficiently known and I hope that public institutions are able and want to protect it.

I had good time here!
MASSIMO VALLEVery interesting, industrial village of 800 remained virtually intact. It pays to take a guide which also costs absolutely content. Very attractive ideal for a half day
Giuseppe OrigoMaster architecture early 900, the conservation of which suffers the ravages of time and the superfettazioni created by individual owners. Worth the visit but also a sanitation
Marina BerettaBeautiful village of UNESCO to visit better take a guide only costs 5 euro
