Mills of Crosa
The presence of mills testified
the autonomous life
of these little villages.
In fact the wheat and rye
cultivated were milled
in place, without coming down
to the plain.
At the beginning of last century,
the parish of Becetto had 900
villagers who lived with
the produtcs of land.
Mills were situaded along
the Crosa torrent,
from which the driving
Testimonies show that they were 14 in Becetto and Sampeyre,
but a flood at the beginning of '900 destroyed them.
Only two remain, still visible one that served Becetto and Serre villages
and the other Durandi and Civalleri villages.
Another is visible at Sampeyre at the entrance of town.
It is still possible to see along the torrent the worked millstones,
dragged by the impetus of the waters.
