Mills ex MCM

In common with other towns in the neighbourhood, Angri experienced a sudden influx of industry starting in the early years of the 19th century. The area of open land lying between the historical town centre and the railway station was occupied by spinning and weaving mills  sponsored by the Bourbon rulers with the contribution of skilled workers and capital from other nations. The oldest, most extensive and best preserved enterprise was the one known as MCM (Manifatture Cotoniere Meridionali), a company that owned other plants at Nocera and in the area of Salerno. It stands close to the historical centre; further along the Corso there is the Villino Vitelli, built in eclectic style at the beginning of the 20th century as the shopfront for the ex-Elvea company. The complex covers a vast area and includes the offices on the main road and various  workshops dating from the 19th and 20th centuries, interesting examples of industrial archaeology in the South of Italy which await rehabilitation and a new function.
