Information about the Paragon is rare. The old 5-Star Grand Hotel closed in 2007 because of decreasing number of tourists visiting the small town somewhere in the nowhere of the Italian mountains.

Such a shame what has happened to the grand hall with the graffiti. I do love those paintings in #6 though. Some fantastic photos as usual :thumb

Pretty cool place really, if you hadn’t of said it was a hotel I’m not sure I would have guessed personally. Has more of a hospital ring to it, see stuff that reminds me of west park in the UK.

      The former hotel has been closed in 2007 and from the outside the building was unmistakably abandoned. But inside, it largely looked as if you only have to perform a few beauty repairs in order to use the hotel again.
      My visit was already in 2012. I was told that the entrances were sealed later. I don't know what has become with it today.

      Carrozzeria Ghia was a car company that designed and build car bodies for other car brands like Volkswagen, Detomaso and Fiat. The company was founded in 1916. In 1970 the company was sold to Ford Motor Company who took the whole designstudio to Detroit. At this time the building was abandoned and is still to this day.
       

       

      The design studio where masterpieces where created like the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia and the Detomaso Pantera
       

      The factory halls
       

       

       

       

      This is the old factory hall where the low volume models where build like concept cars and limited edition cars
       

      This is a comparison from 1969 vs 2015 (Detomaso Mangusta on the picture)
       
      I hope you liked my first post!

      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.
