This is a very popular textile factory in Italy. It is very big, it even has a power plant which used to power the whole structure when it was functioning. We stayed there for like 4 hours and managed to explore maybe only 2/3 of the place (or even less)... Entering there was tricky because all the doors has recently been welded (even that one which was used by all the explorers) and the only remaining access was 3 meters away from a couple in a car while doing... nothing, literally. They were just sitting in their car doing nothing... So we had to improvise a little bit. When we got out we almost got spotted by a very slow police car so I instantly layed down inside the cabin at the entrance (I was taking a picture there) and my mate hid himself behind of it. We even heard the police radio a few meters away from us. After a few minutes we saw the car moving away from us, and then we managed to get out.

That was honestly funny lol

Here is the complete album.

I can't remember having seen this place before. The rotten turbines, the control room with the old computers, the detail shot of the board with the keys - really great.

Maybe it isn't really famous internationally speaking, but at least here in Italy every explorer who loves industrial locations has visited this place or knows about it.

This is really good. I love the control room and the little turbines.
