Geocache Description:


Archeologia industriale: cucine economiche


   
(english below)


Il 15 dicembre 1883 venne inaugurato l'edificio delle "cucine economiche" in viale Monte Grappa; progettato da Luigi Broggi per il "Comitato promotore per le cucine economiche e i forni sociali", ospitava un refettorio con 160 posti, e fu il primo esempio cittadino di ente assistenziale, creato per limitare la diffusione della pellagra, malattia che colpiva le fasce più deboli della popolazione, dovuta ad una cattiva e scarsa alimentazione.
Il luogo fu scelto perchè al tempo si trovava al centro di una vasta zona industriale che ruotava intorno alla stazione della linea ferrovaria Milano-Monza e al naviglio della Martesana, tramite il quale entravano le merci in città, approdando al vicino Tombone di San Marco.

The place was chosen becouse in time here there was a big industrial area, near to Milano-Monza railway station, the "Martesana" channel, through which the goodses entered in city, from near "Tombone di San Marco".
