  • Il Filatoio Rosso di Caraglio is a really unique, perhaps still too little known, but very interesting to learn about its ancient history linked to the breeding of silkworms. A history dating back to the early decades of 1600, when a brilliant industrialist, this Earl Galleani, built this elegant and original structure succeeding in producing silk yarns, considered among the most valuable and exported in Lyon and in Como, city par excellence for the weaving of silk fabrics. A world that revolved around the silkworm and the work of women spinning and spinning mill. Thanks to a careful and painstaking study by two architects, enthusiasts have been rebuilt two of the four existing at that time, spinning perfectly equal and working. Only then, in their genre. A model exists within a comprehensive vision of the entire complex. The entire hotel has been carefully restored, inside there is also the cafeteria with the bookshop. An expert guide will explain all the various stages of manufacture, from the raising of silkworms to the transformation of the cocoon into valuable yarn, so much appreciated at the time and yet to this day. The reality of a world to us pretty much unknown and cinserva only a vague recollection. Free admission with the discount card for Museums Piedmont, similarly the guided tour. Still until 7 April you can also take advantage of visiting the exhibition dedicated to the great multi-faceted and Genoese artist Emanuele Luzzati, an audio guide (free) takes you in unfortunately, too short, but set up which seem, in a totally original. NOT TO BE MISSED!

  • Beautiful structure of the former fliers, impressive and well restored. I haven't seen the fliers inside, had ticket separately from the view of Luzzati and we didn't have much time ... View of Luzzati fabulous literally.--a fantasy world, fairy-like, very nice set ... fantastic cartoon videos. I find it very suitable for families with children. very reasonable, considering price: 8 euros. To be seen absolutely. Extended until 27 April!

  • Pleasant structure used for temporary exhibitions that alone is worth the visit. RECOMMENDED especially if you combine your visit to a lunch at the nearby Inn Paschera San Carlo

  • The silk factories flyer is one of the oldest in Europe. The building was constructed around two interior courtyards, where they carried out the operations related to the production of silk. Within production environments have been reconstructed and the living spaces. A part of the complex houses the Museum of silk factory.
