Cementificio Giacinto Guffanti

THE ABANDONED FACTORY IN ITALY


‘Cementificio Giacinto Guffanti’ is a cement producing factory, founded in 1886 by industrialist Giacinto Guffanti. The company, situated in Albino, was the cement supplier for the construction of the Central Station from Milan.

The factory was later taken over by the children of Giacinto Guffanti. In 1921 the company was taken over by Italcementi. The factory was updated to artificial cement production, being amongst the first in Italy. In 1939 Cementificio Giacinto produced 167 tons concrete a year.

After the rebuilt in the late 1940s, this unit employed 250 workers and produced Portland and Pozzolan cement. In 1966 the factory closed down for three years due to the economic crisis.

Nevertheless, the impossibility to further upgrade the plant due to the lack of space led to a definitive production stop in 1976. Grind operations continued until 2005. I took these photos¬†of ‘Cementificio Giacinto Guffanti’ in 2010. The site was demolished in 2019.
