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.

NIce little bit of history there especially with the design of the Karmann Ghia. Funny to think something so cool was designed in what's now derelict. 

I enjoyed your first post, look forward to more :)

      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.
