Crespi d'Adda is a historical settlement in Capriate San Gervasio, Lombardy
It 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 intact and is partly used for industrial purposes, although changing economic and
social conditions now threaten its survival.
Crespi d'Adda have been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage
site since 1995
