Crespi d'Adda, Capriate San Gervasio

4.1
#7 of 58 in Historic Sites in Province of Bergamo
Historic Site Landmark
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.

  • The advice is to tell the village from those working in the cultural association because they are people who pass on the experience of those who have lived and worked in the cotton mill and will awaken passions. So we did and were very pleased. We hope that the old factory will eventually open to the public to try a little feeling of ' crossing the gate ' when at the time meant much more than go to work. You expect at least 3 hours between guided and unguided. Protect yourself from insects in summer (there are two rivers that surround you!).

  • Trezzo sull'adda offers the visit of a large factory which left important historical sources over time with a guided tour with one of the experts of the Association Charity culture that is very interesting!

  • I had good time here!
  • Very 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

  • Master 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
