  1. Italy Manicomio di R... June '15

    Day 3 of the 'Tour di Bastardi'... Up bright n early and on our way to location No1 and, as far as I was concerned, the real reason for visiting Italy in the first place! Biggest 'want' on the 'want' list so when we immediately bumped into the caretaker and were told 'NO PHOTO! NO PHOTO!..' as he shut the gates and locked them behind him, to say that the dummy was spat out was an understatement!! GUTTED!! Unperturbed, a quick scout and another possible access was spotted and with luck on our side we were in! Will have to go a LONG way to beat this one! Better than I was expecting and I was expecting a lot! Hope you enjoy looking at the pics half as much as I enjoyed taking them... ... ... Thanks for lookin' in...

  3. The parish church probably dates back to the chapel of a nearby castle, which was already documented in the late 11th century. In the 15th century the church was rebuilt, last renovations were made around 1960. Due to static problems it was finally closed and decayed rapidly. A few years ago inside the golden plastic coffin was still a saint doll, but meanwhile it has been stolen. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
  4. No Northern Italy trip would be complete without a quick poke round this one and so it transpired the 'Tour Di Bastardi' stopped off and we were pretty taken aback with 'that' staircase... As always... Ta for lookin'

  6. Built in 1909 these hydroelectric turbines are old and beautiful - embodying all the charm and character that was incorporated into the design of industrial equipment from that period. Some signs of restoration are visible, so it looks like the future of this glimpse of the past is secure. The building consists of a single turbine hall, unassuming from the outside straddling an Italian river. The Brown Boveri turbines themselves really are something special, employing a vertical design to allow them to be driven by hydro power. The power plant forms part of a larger complex that has a cotton mill at its heart. The town which the power plant once supplied was built to house the workers of the mill, and the power plant supplied free electricity for them. The turbines really were an amazing sight, and certainly one of my favourite places to have visited. 1. Turbine Hall 2. Turbines and Control Panel 3. The turbines 4. Gauges on the control desk 5. Control panels 6 & 7. Turbine details 8. Turbines viewed from ground level 9. Wheels and equipment around the turbines
  7. A small chapel on the roadside. The larger, also abandoned master church was unfortunately inaccessible. But with very beautiful figures on the outside. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19

  16. Manicomio di R - visited may 2015 Manicomio di R, one of the most precious and famous asylums in Italy So this one we had to do, and we did... for like 20 minutes :-( We decided to do the underground-route because that was the 'most unseen' one. Once on groundfloor, we were welcomed in the very nice corridors. I wanted those corridors since a long time, so I couldn't wait to do this shot. Unfortunately, 20 minutes later, two men in very cool uniforms stood in the hallway: carabinieri! Not smiling at all, also the farmer (owner/guard/I have no idea) wasn't amused with our visit. they told us some old folks saw us getting in, and called them up. Lucky one: the carabinieri spoke a bit english, we could make ourselfs a bit understandable what we were doing. We had to leave immediately, off course, so we came back in that park-area... 5 or 6 grandpa's and granny's were looking at us coming out the building, thet looked like we were some kind of scum. They even closed the frontgates of the park, to make sure we couldn't escape. We all had to give our ID-cards and domestic details. This time, it was a warning, next time it will be court... so they told us. This is one of the most beautiful decayed asylums I've ever tasted, Oh I will have my vengeance on this one! Here the only shots I could make of this amazing location, at least I have a pic of the cool corridors I wished for, but thats all... be careful what you wish for, God can be a funny guy I guess :-) 1. 2. 3.
  17. Italy Manicomio di R - 2015

    More Italy reportage! This place was particularly special and possibly my favourite location on the whole trip Italy is just full of goodness, no matter what sort of derp it is! We hit this one late afternoon and was the last location of the day, we didn't get as long as we'd liked in here, we were losing the light fast. However, the warm afternoon light worked so well for photos in here, but i'm gonna have to go back for some for some more asylum goodness Pics: Of course, this report has to start with the corridor shot Tried my best with the lens corrections here.. This awesome corridor leads to the main theatre.. By this point, i'm buzzing my tits off And there it is.. So much better in person! Cheers
