Once upon a time there was a prosperous father and his mentally ill son. Instead of giving the son to lunatic asylum he decided to try to cure his son on his own.
Breathing his last the father willed to spend all of his property to the research of mental illness. According to his directive Villa Sbertoli was converted into a lunatic aylum after his death. During the times several buildings and a huge park were added.
The asylum has been closed in the 1970s. The paintings in the cellar witness the inhabitants situation at the asylum.

Although mainly the Villa appears very to be "decoratetd" Villa Sbertoli I felt it's a very impressive place.

Thanks mate. While so many times before coming back  from a location I was f****** disappointed with my pickings this time I was really quite happy. :14_relaxed: But the location is simply that lovely which makes it easy.

      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.

      Built in 1884 Villa S. ist regarded as the first casino at this coast. After decades of desertion and decay it burned down in 2006.

      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.
