"UNESCO's Villaggio Crespi" Bergamo Off The Beaten Path Tip by mauro_pd

Bergamo Off The Beaten Path: 85 reviews and 239 photos

  The castle, home of the village founder
by mauro_pd

Small village half an hour by car away from Bergamo; this village is included in the worldwide UNESCO list for "special" spots to be protected.
Quotation from UNESCO site:
"Crespi d'Adda in Capriate San Gervasio in Lombardy is an outstanding example of the 19th- and early 20th-century 'company towns' built in Europe and North America by enlightened industrialists to meet the workers' needs. The site is still remarkably intact and is partly used for industrial purposes, although changing economic and social conditions now threaten its survival."
