Start with your guide to discover the Crescenzago and discover the history of the Milanese neighborhood.You will visit the abbey of Santa Maria Rossa, founded in the mid-twelfth century. Built in terracotta, the small and delightful church has survived the transformation of the village, which since the late nineteenth century has been prey to industrialization and massive urbanization. Around the church, stands what was once the convent: a 15th-century residence that became in the 18th century the home of Domenico Berra, an agronomist born in Crescenzago, who perfected irrigation and breeding techniques. Still today you can admire the courtyards, one of which preserves the ogival arches and an ancient well.A few steps away, you will meet the Naviglio della Martesana and you will see the waterfront of Villa Lecchi (XVIII century) and the villas Petrovic (XIX century) and Pino De Ponti (XIX century), in whose garden at the end of the nineteenth century was built a spinning mill.
