My photos and other images of the Innocenti Lambretta factory in Milan, Italy
Wednesday, 21 March 2012
The Innse water tower still standing at the old Lambretta factory but is now heavily covered in graffiti. This is the beacon that allowed me to find the factory the first time around. I set out on foot from Piazza Duca with only a map and some vague old memories about where the factory stood and no idea if anything remained. I made it to the train station (Lambrate FS) OK but took a wrong turn. I walked out of town, under the freeway and was heading into the countryside when I saw the tower standing tall out of the fog which carpets Lombardia in November. Setting off across a farmer's field, I was chased off by a dog, his owner and a long arm rifle! So I walked the long way around!
