Interesting and different place to visit. Perfectly preserved industrial workers village which gives an insight into the history of the textile mill and the family influence across Italy.

Fascinating UNESCO world heritage site, great town for walking and educational excursion. Original worker housing with current residents living there today, try not to gawk at this beautiful neighborhood. Lovely cemetery just outside of center worth a visit.
