Something about my city: Como (Italy)

posted on 11th of march, 2010

Hi to everyone, today I want to tell you a little story about my city Como, located in the north of Italy, really close to Swiss.

In the picture, Como is viewed from the hill named Baradello, where there is a little medieval castle.

If you look in to the left side of the picture, in the bottom area, you can see an empty space. That area is where for many decades, there was a old abandoned textile factory, called Ticosa. In January 2007, finally, the mayor of the city, decide to put it down, after quite 30 years of degradation.
