  1. 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 abandoned. Annoyingly, in the past stupid idiots have damaged and destroyed some things there by vandalism. So, for example, the striped sofa in the entrance hall and the red sofa on the first floor. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25
  2. 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addition to beautiful statues, I also found several old tombs there, which partly seemingly fell into oblivion and are no longer maintained. Fortunately, most of these mausoleums were not locked, so I was able to take pictures inside of them. History The monumental cemetery behind the basilica already existed in the beginning of the 17th century, probably even much earlier. It was redesigned and enlarged by galleries with urn graves in 1870. Today it's considered one of the most beautiful burial places of the region. Because its place is limited, older tombs sometimes are auctioned for a new use. Recently, a grave monument for two persons was sold for 19,000 euros in the summer of 2018. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26
  3. 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
  4. 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 roadside and walked across a field to the property. Next door were still inhabited houses, so we tried to be quiet. There was actually a small villa, but plain on the outside and, in addition, unfortunately locked and not accessible.. Next to it was a large hall, inside many figures of carnival parades, made of papier-mâché and plasticine. A strange estate, but at least a few exceptional subject for photos. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19
  5. 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 the property would still be used by a gardener. Fortunately, nobody was there during our visit. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17
  6. 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 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
  7. 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 10 11
  8. 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 wall and over a pile of rubble ... On one side, parts of the house had already collapsed, where I was able to climb through a wall gap into the interior. The property belonged to the owner of a brickyard. A calendar showed "November 1967". Maybe the house has been abandoned at that time. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34
  9. 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 were partly surrounded by overgrown scaffolding, but unfortunately completely stripped. Inside there was a large fireplace and a room with wall and ceiling paintings, that could only be accessed via one of the scaffolding. The upper floors of the partly overgrown, ruinous gate tower, whose staircase has probably caved in ages ago, were no longer accessible. On the net, I could found the information that the palazzo was originally from the first half of the 17th century. With the death of Count von M., the noble family of the builder family died out at the end of the 19th century. Most recently, the property (at this time owned by a monastery) was used as a wine store at the beginning of the 20th century. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16
  10. 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 9
  11. 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
  12. 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. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
