Ok, so where is Codogno ? Codogno is a small town about 50 kms from Milano -rast south east and 90 kms from Bergamo. Is there something famous there ? No. Touristy place ? No. It is just onecif those small towns, on nobody's radar, where nobody would normally go. A normal place in Italy and i think it is what it makes it interesting.
I parked on the main square, that houses a structure for the market. But it wasn't market day. A very quiet square. Going towards the old town. Easy to spot, just go where you see a campanile. I love these structures. My guess is there must be a statue of the Madonna where the building protudes... Charming houses. I entered it and it is how it looks like. The church, unfortunately clised. From closer. Closer. The guy looks like Saint Nicholas.
The house of the mayor. The pavement of the road is great. There were a lot of pebbles too. Quite beautiful. I fell in live with their doors. They must come from middle age. Another one. Where can you get such nsils nowadays ?
I foynd this house quite 'kitsch'. I would remove the madonna first thing if i bought it. I found this restaurant. Macaronni as first course and pork as main. Plus a diet coke... 11 euros. I took thevpork just because 'maiale' was the only word i caught when the waitress told the menu. And this is the office of yhe factory i visited. The table is an old conveyor, the chairs are like a Louis something style. Of course the table is glass, both to show the underneath and because they sell to the glass industry. Glass, what else ?
It looks quite nice, but you can probably confirm that a real tourist visit would probably last only 2-3 hours (including lunch). All of the European cities seem to have done a really good job at repaving their pedestrian and semi-pedestrian areas.
