Further information
The old silk mill was built by Moisè Vita Jacur according to plans drawn up by his grandson, Leone Romanin-Jacur in 1872.
It soon became one of the most important mills in the entire Veneto Region.
During its peak, the factory provided work for 250 people, making a great positive impact on the local economy, which was still based mainly on agriculture at that time.
Further improvements were made to the plant in the early twentieth century, and production continued until 1937.
After a period in which production was suspended initially because of Fascist laws against the Jews, and then due to the war, work began again immediately after the war.
The mill was closed down for the last time during the early part of the 1950’s.
