    Italy Castello G. (visited 07/2018)

    I already have had this castle on my map for a few years and I also wanted to visit it since then. But finally I only came to its area this summer. Located on the hill above the castle is a chapel and on the way there, along the wall around the castle, were really a lot of tourists. But...

    Italy Le tombe del cimitero L. (07/2018)

    I discovered this beautiful cemetery during planning my last trip to Italy this summer. Our accommodation was nearby, so we visited the cemetery. In addition to beautiful statues, I also found several old tombs there, which partly seemingly fell into oblivion and are no longer maintained...

    Italy Villa Gemelli (07/2018)

    This villa with its many wall and ceiling paintings (also named "Villa twins", "Villa Sofa", "Villa F." and so on) has already been known for a long time in the UE scene. Located on a hill above a small villige, access was easy. Unfortunately I don't know when the house was built and when it was...

    Italy Villa Piano (07/2018)

    Not much to say about this house in Italy. Inside largely empty, but still with some murals, a broken piano, a stroller and especially many bats on the ceiling of one room. These were fantastic, I really love bats! :) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9...

    Italy Villa P. con cappella (07/2018)

    I visited the stately villa in the eastern center of Italy this summer. The access was quite easy, you just had to crawl between the gate, which lacked a metal bar. The chapel with family crypt is located in a separate building, which gradually become overgrown from the outside. I was told that...

    Italy Carnevale (07/2018)

    Another find via the satellite images of Google Earth. Several buildings behind a small forest with partly broken roofs. On Streetview you could only see a overgrown gate and a column with fancy animals. A castle? A mansion? So I drove there to check it. We parked a little further along the...

    Italy Teatro tenda rossa (07/2018)

    I’ve visited this nice theater during my 10 day trip to Italy this summer. Located in the center of a small town, access was very easy. Although there were people on the street outside, but they were not interested in us. Unfortunately, I know nothing about its history.     1   2   3...

    Italy Villa vicino al campo (07/2018)

    Not quite the kind of pictures I usually take - this time, unfortunately, only smartphone shots in a moderate to terrible quality ... The search for access took a little longer. No chance from the front. So on the back accross a field, through thorn hedges, and finally climb over a gate, a...

    Chiesa in tempesta e pioggia (07/2018)

    A small abandoned church, but with a lot and nice interior. It was built in 1927. The way through blackberry thorns was not really comfortable with shorts. During the visit, there was also a storm with lots of rain.     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9  ...

    Italy Palazzo con torre d'ingresso (07/2018)

    Discovered while searching on Google Earth. A larger property with several buildings and holey roofs, set off the beaten track. So of course I had to go there and check it ... Decades ago it was apparently started with the renovation, which eventually came to a standstill again. The buildings...

    Italy Printing works, August 2018

    This time I was actually in vacation with two friends of mine (they aren't explorers), but while we were organising all of our trip we decided to explore this abandoned and untouched printing works (hope that this is a proper name) that I had discovered a few weeks before. Those 2 guys were a...

    Private air raid shelter, August 2018

    Imagine that you are preparing yourself for an exploration for like a month and you are dreaming about it for like a year. Then the day finally arrives and EVERYTHING that could stop us happen at the same time. Not only this was a rainy day, but this was the infamous day that a bridge in Italy...

    Cava di marmo / marble quarry (07/2018)

    I found this former marble quarry in my search for more abandoned places via Google Earth. The quarry already existed in the 13th century. In the 14th to more intensive use in the 17th century, the marble was used for monasteries.     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8...

    Italy Villa Heleonora (visited 07/2018)

    An abandoned Italian villa next to the road. Nothing really special, because unfortunately stripped, but at least still with a few nice ceilings. Due to the holey floors and cracked stairs, it was partially a bit tricky to enter the upper floors to photograph the ceiling paintings. But...

    Il cinema blu (07/2018)

    Unfortunately, I don't know anything about the history of this former cinema. Access was very easy. Inside, there were a few nice things left. And a poor, mummified cat.     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10   11   12   13   14

    Italy Villa delle statue (07/2018)

    A very strange house of an artist or similar. Very overgrown, in the middle of a small forest. Inhabited by at least 10,000 bloodthirsty mosquitoes ...! Unfortunately, some of the ornate statues have been destroyed in recent months. Inside it was quite dark, so I lit the photos with a torch...

    Italy Villa con letto rosso (visited 07/2018)

    I found this villa in the middle of nowhere in Italy. I hardly know anything about the history. A calendar on the wall shows the year 1998. At this time the property was probably abandoned. The owner of the large villa with elaborate furniture was certainly not poor. 1 2 3 4 5 6...

    Italy Castello dell'Artista (visited 07/2018)

    The palace was built in the 14th - 15th centuries and extended especially in the second half of the 17th century. Recently, the aristocratic estate was inhabited by a painter & artist. I don't know since when the palace is abandoned. Access was through lots of scrub and stinging nettles...

    Chiesa con croce blu (visited 07/2018)

    The church was built between 1791 and 1794. Today it is very ruinous and overgrown, but still worth a visit. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

    Red Cross Hospital - June 2018

    Red Cross Hospital     Before it's closure at some point during the 1980's, it served as a children's hospital. It was thought to have been founded around the turn of the 20th century. The hospital was owned and managed by the charity 'Red Cross Italy' which becomes apparent from the rather...
