This was a fun one. A small part of the hospital is still in use so there were lots of vehicles coming and going. Security kept driving up and down the main road as well like it was groundhog day so we had to stay on our toes.

The hospital was built in 1930 for the treatment of people suffering from mental illness. Towards the end of WWII, in 1945, a famous massacre took place here.  Seventy five Italian Social Republic soldiers were brought here as prisoners and around 50 of them were brutally executed. Some of them being tied up with wire and crushed under the wheels of two trucks. Anyway, as I was saying, a fun place to hang out, with something to see in most of the buildings. I'd say we got around 75% of the abandoned stuff. Here's some pics:

Very nice set and great to see, that you could visit it! :)
A friend nearly got caught in summer two years ago; the security isn't "very friendly" there mostly... ;)

Yeah security seemed to be very active. I'm not sure if they knew we were inside or not but we managed not to get caught :)
