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.

  • Beautiful village worker. The atmosphere is still that of a time and feels like stepping back in time. Maybe he need more tourists, but at the same time it is probably precisely this lack to keep intact its charm

  • Held in degradation you risk fines for ZTL where there's nothing total. MiniCartello ZTL put straight on downhill stretch without alerts before the ZTL area, almost a trap. Donated 100 eur Discouraged

  • Interesting example of early industrial village built around 900 large opificio Crespi. Fascinating walking around the country among the tidy homes of the employees while you must visit the old cemetery. Absolutely worth visiting.
