Conceria Fraschini

THE ABANDONED FACTORY IN ITALY


This is ‘Conceria Fraschini’ in Brenta. It’s a tannery in Italy started as a small mill in 1802 at the exact place where today the buildings are left abandoned.

During the Second World War the tannery Fraschini was entered in the register of enterprises suitable for military supplies to the Royal Navy. After a few hard postwar years the business went booming at the end of the 1940s. In 1949 many stores were opened around Italy selling the factories product. The tannery employed 220 people in 1968.

Pollution

During the year 2000, 37 employees are fired to keep the factory form bankruptcy. The company among the oldest in the Province of Varese was purchased by the Polita Group in 2007. But in 2009 the curtain falls for the tannery, the ‘Guardia di Finanza’ declares its bankruptcy. The grounds are heavily polluted. It holds up to 78.000 milligrams chromium per kilogram of soil, when the limit is 150 milligrams.

But years later, the factory is still abandoned. The photos¬†of ‘Conceria Fraschini’ were taken in 2014. Also check the report of this Belgian abandoned tannery.
