Savor the history of Crespi d'Adda, a World Heritage-listed "company town" that is still functioning--although its future is unclear. Company towns were developed in the 19th and 20th centuries in North America and Europe to satisfy the needs of industrial workers--nearly all jobs and facilities were provided by a singular company.
