    Italy Manicomio Di R

    History: Manicomio Di R was built in 1870 as an place for the poor, but after a couple of years it was transformed into an mental asylum. Electroshock therapy was used extensively here, along with experimental operations on the nervous system. Facilities included a laboratory of clinical...

    Italy Villa B. - January 2019

    Sadly I couldn't get much info about this beautiful mansion. Located in a very little town in northen Italy, it seems that it was built between the 19th and 20th century, and abandoned during the 80s. Photos shot with Praktica mtl3, Pentacon 29mm f/2.8 on Kodak Colorplus.

    Italy Paper mill E. - April 2019

    Some of you may have already seen this one. This is a nice paper mill closed down almost a decade ago. There are many photos of this place when it was still active, and some of them were taken when the factory had been occupied by workers right after the closure... It's a rather good place...

    Italy Sanatorio G, Italy - March 2019

    The Italians don't mess around when it comes to architecture and this old sanatorium is no exception. Built in 1924 in an art deco style, it began life as a tuberculosis hospital before being converted into a generic hospital in the 1950s. In 2015 it closed down to make way for a new hospital...

    Italy Villa di Cavaliere (03/2019)

    Quite extraordinary from the outside, this villa is hidden in the hills of central Italy. The whole property consists of a huge garden, swimming pool, some sheds for dogs and probably a garage, the most eye catching is the main yellow castle-ish looking house. It used to belong to a man who was...

    Italy Villa Specchi Gemelli

    Hidden in central Italy, this beautifull villa stands still in a huge overgrown garden. There is not much information about it. Originally it seems to have been built for a noble family, later was enlarged and served also for guests. During the war period the house witnessed a horrible massacre...

    Italy Bloody factory - March 2019

    I discovered this big factory almost 2 years ago. It used to build washing machines and it was closed down more than 10 years ago. At that time it was already obvious that the location was completely empty... but what made me really interested in this place was the colour of some building of the...

    Italy Former textile factory N., February 2019

    This is a very popular textile factory in Italy. It is very big, it even has a power plant which used to power the whole structure when it was functioning. We stayed there for like 4 hours and managed to explore maybe only 2/3 of the place (or even less)... Entering there was tricky because all...

    Italy Modern school, August 2018

    Some months ago I went to explore this abandoned middle school. Since it is almost completely vandalized, there is nothing special inside (exept maybe for the wooden chair you will see), but what made me so curious about this structure was its architecture, very modern and... unusual for a...

    Italy Vecchia scuola con globo (visited 07/2018)

    I already visited this former school in Italy last summer.   I don't know if the rumor is true; but I heard that the globe is not original. Allegedly, the previously existing globe was stolen. Then, so is said, a photographer brought another globe and put it there. But as I said, I don't know...

    Italy Manicomio Celletta

    Since many years we knew this manicomio of the italian south but we never tried to go there. It's not the best place to be cause of the crime in this region. Italians warned us that we had to take care of our gear if we explore this region. Sometimes it's not good to hear to many stories cause...

    Italy Villa con striscia (visited 07/2018)

      From the outside it was obvious that the building was abandoned. Next door, children were playing in the yard of the adjacent school, while we entered the former residence through an open door. Some parts of the villa were already very ruinous or even collapsed, but the beautiful wall and...

    Italy Villa ornata con fontana (visited 07/2018)

    It had rained the day before my visit. Therefore, the steep slope that I climbed up alone to this abandoned, Italian villa on a hill, had turned into a muddy slide. The way up was correspondingly arduous and painstaking. I slipped off several times and within minutes my clothes were half soaked...

    Italy Monastero Monte

    We visited this italian monastery this year. It' seems to be a peaceful place so we decided to sleep there (inside the car) . It's build on a hill with a nice view, also at night. Everything is open and it looks like that it's absolutely o.k. to visit it cause also normal italien people come...

    Italy Chiesetta chiusa (visited 07/2018)

      I found this Italian chapel on Google Earth, and because I was close to it during my summer trip anyway, I drove there to check it. Unfortunately, it was closed, so I could only take some exterior shots of it.     1   2   3   4   5   6

    Italy Villa Italia (visited 07/2018)

    This italian house behind large, closed iron gates at the entrance of the property (also called Villa Pompous / Villa Zombo / Villa dei Levrieri / Villa del Levriero / Villa PDO...) is located within a small forest, so it can't be seen directly from the street. From the outside the villa looks...

    Italy Villa con giardini d'inverno (07/2018)

    The (now ruinous) 18th-century villa with conservatories was purchased by the wealthy merchant Giuseppe Calamai, consul of Russia, in 1771 and used as a country estate. Due to financial difficulties, the Calamai family was forced to sell the villa in 1821 to Count Giovanni Giraud.   A few...

    Italy Casa con vestito rosso (visited 07/2018)

    I found the house with the red dress by coincidence - discovered this summer while visiting the "Chiesa in tempesta e pioggia". The house was right next to this church, and obviously it was also abandoned. The access way and the property were already quite overgrown. The old wooden door just...

    Belgium House of the football coach / Villa dell'Allenatore (visited 07/2018)

    Meanwhile, this Italian villa of a football coach is pretty well known, and several things has changed there. Only a dusty dirt road leads to it and from outside the house looks quite inconspicuous. But once again proves: Don't judge a book by its cover...! 1 2 3 4...
