Rossi Woolens' High Factory Schio

A close up colour view of the magnificent Fabbrica Alta at Schio, dating from the early industrial era when factories were built and situated to concentrate labour at the source of [hydraulic] power rather than the other way round, as later on when the locus of production moved to the big cities to maximise access to cheap labour during the coal era.
