  • The place where I wanted to live, too bad it seems abandoned to itself. So we would have to do to keep a reality and an idea, revolutionary for its time! Congratulations to leumann for the idea, less Kudos to the man of today!! Absolutely worth visiting to relive the sensations of yesteryear and lucky the current inhabitants.

  • The village Leumann is the brainchild of an enlightened entrepreneur of Swiss origin Napoleon Leumann, who moved the family business from Voghera in Turin, benefiting from the incentives it offered the city budget, a veteran of contested transfer of capital first in Florence and then Rome. At the time, in fact, the city of Turin granted land to political price and tax breaks, with the intention of recreating a new role that would make up for the loss of lustre, the centrality and the important functions of a capital city. Also a wide range of low-cost skilled labor completed the process of attraction of capital and entrepreneurs, including foreigners as Leumann, Abegg, Remmert, Metzger, Caratsch helping to make Turin the new capital of the industry. The choice fell on the vast plot of land (approximately 60,000 square meters) in the countryside surrounding the small town of Collegno, close to Turin. Here in 1875 Isaac Leumann and son Napoleon decided to install a new production facility to work on cotton, unlike the previous establishment of Voghera which treated linen. Fundamental in the choice of location was also the presence of irrigation canals (stream of Grugliasco) and proximity to a new, modern infrastructure: the railway that runs along the axis of the current Course France, allowed a quick connection to Turin, the nearby Streams but also the Val di Susa and Frejus tunnel through the new France.

  • Designed in the nineteenth century by the architect Fenoglio who made, in addition to the cotton mill also houses and the school. Decadent living point of view today. Beautiful and well renovated part of listings with nice shops and good parking. Fortunately they were saved some trees.

  • A village of yesteryear. Beautiful ancient village built in the area Now is extending toward the border in Grugliasco, village built at the end of 800 at the behest of the owner of the cotton mill, the Lord. Napoleon Leuman progressive industrialist with a mindset far ahead, for that time. He built this village for its employees that could live close to the plant and have the comforts as the school the station post office and the Church. The houses built in the art nouveau style, beautiful still, here it seems as if time has stopped, a fairy tale village today some people still live here, some years ago was shot on film was born a star. Very interesting also the Museum, everything nice to visit.

  • Very nice houses outwardly seems a fairy village pity that in reality is only the façade as it can see fences broken, rusty water pipes not to mention the rooftops!! No maintenance is ever made! Several hardships for those who live in these houses, say all seems perfect Sin then being a village abandoned to itself.

  • Workers ' village built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries; described by several authors including Giovanni Arpino's dress you in 50 years. The complex represents a rare example of industrial architecture of the time. Around the factory workers ' houses are still inhabited, the school, the Church and other buildings. In addition the Museum allows you to see what it was like inside a dwelling of the era
