THE MEDIEVAL VILLAGE
In the Dark Ages it belonged to the Earls of Valperga. The development of the village was linked to its strategic location. Carlo Preverino had made a road that linking directly Cuorgnè to Traversella, for easy access to the mines and facilitate the mobility.
It’s one of the finest medieval arcades of Piedmont.
The Orco bridge proved the importance of Cuorgnè. A time came to have 13 span demonstrating the flow of the river, but today there are visible only four.
The Manufacture of Cuorgnè was the largest complex of cotton Piedmont. Not even the world wars have stopped production. Today, the building is a wonderful example of industrial archeology and includes an eco-museum that recounts the story of the living conditions of the workers and the production techniques of the historic cotton mill.
