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 carried by German troops, that resulted in shooting of almost 40 civilians in its gardens.

Garden is now so full of greenery that from far away you can hardly see the house. And even when standing very close to it, from the outside it actually seems pretty repelling. After going through the shed and after passing thru first very trashed room, you get to see beautifull room with golden wallpaper, beatifull sofa a iconic two mirrors, that gave the villa its name.

From the materials left in the house, one can assume it has been abandoned for over 20 years. On some papers from social services are stated the names of its last owners, probably one of them was a doctor. If you look very carefully in one of the bedrooms, you can even locate their photos. Even thou it has been vandalized lately, there are still some personal items, apart from the photos of the owners you can also find teeth prostethics, suitcase, some pieces of clothing and tons of books.

Still a nice place. And interesting to read something about its history. Just sad that there has been a lot of vandalism in recent years.
