History and Architecture

Piazza Frette, today an important commercial and administrative centre, is the product of a successful restoration and reuse of part of the industrial heritage that was carried out in the 1980s and ’90s. The characteristic sheds that frame the square and, to an even greater extent, the chimney that stands in the small square behind are a memory of the historic Tessitura Frette works which, located in the centre of the town, marked the times and life of the people of Sovico for over a hundred years, from 1865 to 1983, the year in which the textile mill was transferred to Concorezzo.
