History:
This former synthetical nylon factory was established back in the mid 20s by a German textile entrepreneur. At the time the factory location was chosen due to the close proximity to a lake and the Swiss border. After the opening the factory got into hard times due to sanctions and the outbreak of the second world war. During these times the production of chemical nylon was pretty much non existing, and the little remaining production was reserved for the Italian army of Mussolini.

When the war ended the production was restarted pretty much immediately, the restart went hand in hand with a booming trend in sales. The Italian fashion industry quickly picked up the smooth and flexible nylon which created a general modernization trend for the factory.
In the mid 70s the factory went in a gradual down wards spiral, in the mid 2000s the factory got finally closed down...

We first explored the large weaving plant.

In this part a grand relatively untouched lab was located.

After that we found a control room which operated the nylon weaving line.

The line was also combined with a rather atmospheric workshop.

After exploring the weaving plant we went into the other part of the large compound.

Unfortunately most of the factory was already cleared of original equipment. This was actually a rather recent development.
