by croisbeauty

This is Schio, small town in Veneto region, situated in between town of Vicenza and Rovereto. It is the former center of the fabric producers in Italy, thanks to the excellent quality of the local water resorts.
It was the home of Lanerossi Vicenza, the biggest and the best quality producer of the wool fabrics in Italy, unfortunatelly it was closed years ago.
On this picture you may see the main square of the town, Piazza A. Rossi, with Duomo and the unique monument "Monumento al Tessitore" (the monument to a wool fabric producer).
