Comments

In 1818, Pietro Monti, came to Abbadia Lariana where he transformed an old building for felting wool into silk production. In 1869 he enlarged the building and he added a new one for the spinning of cocoons; the first of the two spinning machines was demolished and in its place three rectangular spinning machines were built. After a period of inactivity, the town council of Abbadia Lariana bought the building in 1978 and after much restoration, the "Museo Setificio Monti" was finally opened in 1998.
