The factory and the Village: order and geometry were to enhance social peace and harmony, in the minds of its creators. The whole settlement that was built at the end of the nineteenth century by the enlightened industrialist Crespis, is still intact today and remains in a preserved idyllic state surrounded by green with no new developments since the 1930's.
