This time I was actually in vacation with two friends of mine (they aren't explorers), but while we were organising all of our trip we decided to explore this abandoned and untouched printing works (hope that this is a proper name) that I had discovered a few weeks before. Those 2 guys were a couple of graphic designers so they enjoyed the visit even more.

This plant used to create mostly the "Action Transfers", which are called "Trasferelli" in Italy: today they are produced mostly on commission and not for business.

Thank you all, this was a very nice exploration. My only regret is that since we were a bit in a hurry I couldn't find any paper about the history of this factory: I don't know anything but its name, even the year of closure is unknown to me.

Yes, that's what the girl of the group said when she saw them on a table.

That's rather nice. I like places that have 'things' and this has a lot of THINGS!
