The biscuits factory

The are pictures from the Museum of the Industries of Saronno, the town where me and my family have been living in the last twelve years. There was a reknowned biscuit factory in town till few years ago. From here cardboard and tin boxes used to start their travel to the tables of kids and others lovers of cakes in the World. Then someone decided it would have been better to move the whole somewhere else, where making biscuit is by far less expensive. What remains now of the old glory of the town are just few machines perfectly maintained but no longer able to make a single biscuit.

belle immagini di archeologia industriale, anche se il termine archologia nella sua nobiltà nasconde il dramma della delocalizzazione e perdita di identità di un territorio
