Three days full of events to make you enjoy the beauty of an ancient workers settlement, a current UNESCO site where past and future merge in harmony with the memory.


The industrial village of Crespi d’Adda was born in 1865, a few kilometres far from the city, next to a cotton mill. First the houses were built, then the school, the church and everything concerning the past history of a people closely tied to an ancient work. A tessellation of buildings whose perfect architectures is so fascinating that in 1995 UNESCO nominated the whole village as “world’s heritage site”.

Today, the site is one of the most visited places in Bergamo’s territory, both by tourists and local people, who join the numerous cultural event animating the village, surrounded by the charm of history and the magic of contemporary artistic expressions.

One of these, the “Crespi Days”, represents a unique opportunity to know the UNESCO site through dialogue and sharing.

Guided tours, walks and bike tours, exhibitions, projections and cocktails with tastings for a weekend  you cannot miss!
