The church of Crespi d’Adda is a really important architecture for the village.
Built between 1891 and 1893 it is the copy of the church of Santa Maria di Piazza in Busto Arsizio;
the direction of the works is assigned to Pietro Brunati, the only difference with the original church in Busto Arsizio is the basement, in conglomerate of Adda, and the stair, in marble from Verona. From 1887 this church opens the doors at 6;30 AM for the unique daily mess, which respects the work shifts.

Direction: engineer Pietro Brunati inside decoration: Luigi Cavenaghi
1896: The presence of a chaplain.
1925: vicarage
1983: Parish of SS. Nome di Maria.

The cemetery of Crespi d’Adda is located at the end of a long street, which starts from the village, the main buildings face on it.
Ideally it’s the path of life of the inhabitants of Crespi d’Adda. In a place where a person find an answer to all needs. He is born in a house, attends the school and the church and works in the factory, and he receives the final respects, which drives to the cemetery: avgreen area, governed by the enormous mausoleum.

It is realised with the purpose to join aesthetic and function. But this is the only area that wasn’t directly assigned to an architect. Cristoforo Benigno Crespi decides to hold a contest, in 1896, thanks to Brera Academy. Gaetano Moretti wins and he takes 12 years to finish the work.

Project: 1896
Architect: Gaetano Moretti I
The works for the cemetery, the mausoleum and the avenue began in 1905 and finished in 1908.

Today the cemetery and the avenue are property of the town hall, but the mausoleum is property of the family Crespi.
