28066 Galliate (NO)
Park Center c/o the Hydroelectric Power Plant "Guido Davide Orlandi" - former Sessa Trona in Galliate. A precious evidence of industrial archeology, the Power Plant, renovated and reopened by the owners, produces today clean energy. The recovered building, enriched by architectural details and precious decorations, faces the waters of Naviglio Langosco, the watercourse along which it was built in 1903. The entire upper floor, formed by an open space of about 400 square meters, has been given on a free loan to the Park for an agreed period of time. The large hall has become a Cultural Center: it houses a permanent photographic exhibit with big panels representing places, buildings, flora and fauna of the protected area and - thanks to the great acoustics - houses concerts and cultural events.
You can reach the Power Plant from Galliate (NO), following the brown road signs, taking SS road 341, then Via Dogana, and going downhill to the valley. At the end of the downhill road, cross the bridge over Canale Langosco and, beyond a gate, follow the channel until you will reach the building. It offers car park, toilets accessible for people with disabilities, and lift.
Opening times: open during the events (2010 dates and opening times not available yet).
