  1. Italy Colonia Montana - September '14

    The former children´s sanatorium ("colonia") is located somewhere in the Italian mountains and was once built for the treatment of ill children. The building itself was a mere time capsule, full of numerous sick beds, school inventory as well as old medical bottles, ointments and tinctures - all of those had exceeded their expiry date by decades. Moreover, we found old documents - old vaccination confirmations of the late 1960's as well as old patient´s lists of the 1950's.
  2. Italy Colonia Verde - 2015

    A holiday camp for children ("Colonia") somewhere in Italy. What appeared to be a grey, boring concrete building from the outside turned out to be colorful from the inside... #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 For more, please visit my website: http://www.industriesafari.de/Viewer/Coloniaverde14/index.html
  3. Italy Colonia IL - 2015

    I assume this place is known to most of the audience here... So I'll save you teh details of it's history. Unfortunately, this location is no longer untouched, but I could limit the (visible) damage with close-up shots and excessive use of the clone... #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 A few more shots on my website: http://www.industriesafari.de/Viewer/Kinderferienheim14/index.html
  4. Evening all, First Italy report from me, as you know I don't process quickly so I have quite a lot of backlog to get through plus another trip next week to contend with so its a busy time. So off the flight in the later afternoon and this was our sleeping place / first morning explore. This abandoned place was built at the end of World War II by a religious order and used to house hundreds of children to enjoy their summertime and enjoy the activities and healthy, mountainous environment. This was closed down in the 1970s. It was fairly trashed but some nice photogenic bits which are well known on the Italian side of exploring. Light was a little dark as it was raining first thing but we made the most of it. This place is going to be renovated shortly as two surveyors turned up mid morning looking for a lost laser guide and told us that the place is being developed into apartments. On with the photos Thanks for looking in.
  5. Hi mates! I'm glad to share with you my last report. There you'll see a very destroyed hotel, used as a hospital in the spanish civil war. Hope you enjoy! Cheers!
