Crespi d'Adda


The village of Crespi d'Adda, just outside in Capriate San Gervasio, is an outstanding example of the 19th and early 20th-century "company towns" built by enlightened industrialists to meet the workers' needs.

It was the first village in Italy to have modern public lighting. Still inhabited today, the site remains partly used for industrial purposes.
