A town in the province of Bergamo in Lombardy, Treviglio sits about 20km from the provincial capital named "Bassa Bergamasca". The 2nd most populated town in the region, it has about 30,000 residents meandering its alleys, sipping espresso in outdoor cafes and getting busy in coworking venues. Sometimes referred to as "The town of courtyards" due to the number of courtyards in the Old Town, Treviglio has 5 main quarters: the Old Town, West zone, North zone, the recently built East zone and the Industrial zone. Founded in the Middle Ages as a fortified town, it was first mentioned in writing in 964. The local dialect is not purely Italian, as like most places in Lombardy, preserved words and sounds are influenced by the frequent occupations of the French. History buffs will wet their panties, as there are so many sites to explore from sacred shrines to town squares and bell towers. The city has a flourishing economy historically based in the production of furniture and silk plus in the 20th century it has expanded into mechanical, electrical and chemical industries. The local government is expanding the development of services and tourism. Coworking venues have opened up in its streets perched beside artisan food shops and eclectic cafes where laid-back locals sip their espresso whilst watching the passing parade.
Italians have creative culture in their blood, from food to fashion, design to wine and there are plenty of innovative tech savvy souls lingering over espressos. Major tech players such as IBM and Apple are opening up new tech hubs alluding to the fact that there is loads of potential in the Italian market. The government is instigating new initiatives to make it easier for startups to "start up" in light of the fact that it has always had a reputation for being bureaucracy-heavy.
Treviglio may not be the tech hub on a par with Turin, Milan or Rome, but it does have its locals who have no desire to move from their beautiful home city, plus there are the meandering globetrotters with laptops in their backpacks that linger longer than they should in this stunning area. Coworking venues are giving them the space to mingle, to connect and to collaborate.
