Italy Animal Testing Facility, Italy - September 2016

Recommended Posts

On a rather rushed last day this was our second to last stop. We were instantly eyed up by the residents of the flats opposite, but after a while of milling around trying not to look suspicious they disappeared. It wasn't long before we were inside and it really hit me. Rows and rows of cages lines the walls and the remains of the labs upstairs. It was interesting to shoot, something different - but one I never want to visit again.

      To get to Preventorio R which has been a childrens sanatorium deep in the mountains of Italy was a real torture. Riding on my Vespa through Italy I'm used to navigate by listening to Google Maps on my earphones.  After hours of riding Google suddenly instructed me to turn left on a really steep and curvy gravel path that didn't allow more than the first gear for about 10km. Finally arriving at the Preventorio i realised that it is situated next to a well developed main street.   F*** Google Maps Navigation! 
      But it turned out to be  worth the effort.

      Although some of the graves go back to the 17th century part of this hige cemetery are left to decay and neglect. The area is blocked so descendants have to overcome construction fences in order to commemorate the deceased.
      For some reason I didn't feel comfortable exploring this site but nevertheless I took some pictures to share with you.

      This ex Nato Base is not really spectacular regarding its structure or facilities but for its location. Situated on the top of a hill (about 1000m) it's a beautifull place to spend the night having a barbecue and some drinks with your buddies. Don't forget to wrap up warm. In the nights it's getting damn cold up there even in summer.

      I have hardly any information about this former boarding school. Apparently it was an institute for boys only. The building is in a decaying state. Fortunately, the vandalism isn´t too bad so far. The size of this insitution almost kills you. It´s very emotional to explore this part of history, when obviously a stong religious belief was one of the most important parts of education. 

      As already mentioned above, this institution was huge. It´s picturesquely embedded between hills. It consisted not only of numerous dormitories and classrooms but its own chapel  and infirmary - with rusty bed frames and old medical stuff left behind - as well. You´ll find traces of religious importance again and again, for example old images of saints - to remind you over and over about the importance of a strong belief that was once an omnipresent theorem in this institution. Let the pictures speak for themselves.
