Capriate San Gervasio (Bergamasque: Cavriàt San Gervàs; Milanese: Capriàa San Gervàsi) is a town and comune in the province of Bergamo, in Lombardy, northern Italy. As of 2016, its population was 8,068.[3]

History[edit]

It received the honorary title of town (città) with a presidential decree on July 11, 2006.

Geography[edit]

It is situated on the southern tip of the so-called Bergamasca Island, a territory delimited by the rivers Adda and Brembo. It includes three hamlets (frazioni) at slightly different altitudes: San Gervasio d'Adda (north), Capriate d'Adda (center) and Crespi d'Adda. The latter, a perfectly preserved example of a 19th-century "workers' village", is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The municipality borders with Bottanuco, Brembate, Canonica d'Adda, Filago, Trezzo sull'Adda (MI) and Vaprio d'Adda (MI).[4]
