Crespi d'Adda, Capriate San Gervasio

(360+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
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.

  • An ancient and surreal art workers ' village, at the time of founding, the Adda Park and half an hour by car from Milan and 15 minutes from Bergamo. It is a Unesco World Heritage site. Not to be missed

  • Thanks to guided tour (only 6 euros per person) booked on the site of the village we were able to visit the beautiful UNESCO site, home to the famous cotton mill of the Crespi family. Since 2004 the factory is closed even if just recently was purchased by a national group that will lead to Charity his Office District and it should also create a Museum in the former villa castello who lived the Crespi family. The visit provided an information section with a video that showed the various places of the village and accompanied by a guide to the discovery of what we had seen in the movie. It was given ample space to the questions and our curiosity. What impressed us favourably is the fact that the houses all have a large garden and that about 400 inhabitants can enjoy a privileged position, away from the city traffic. In the village there is a church, kindergarten, your doctor, a bakery with basic necessities, some restaurants and bars while for other services, go to nearby Trusses.

  • Manufacturing model. Home-Castle of the holder. Inhabited houses according to the levels of employees. A church and much more for the health of our company family. The company is a great example of industrial archeology paradoxically innovative in many ways, still a little sad about other verses as the marked difference between social classes.
