  1. The former children´s sanatorium ("colonia") is located somewhere in the Italian mountains and was once built for the treatment of ill children. The building itself was a mere time capsule, full of numerous sick beds, school inventory as well as old medical bottles, ointments and tinctures - all of those had exceeded their expiry date by decades. Moreover, we found old documents - old vaccination confirmations of the late 1960s as well as old patient´s lists of the 1950s.
  2. Colonia IL / Mono Orphanage History The orphanage was built on the border of Switzerland and Italy. Sadly there doesn't seem to be a lot of information out there regarding this location. From what I've gathered it originally served as an orphanage and at some point in time, it was also used as a summer camp. Despite being closed during the 1970's, it has remained in pretty good condition with minimal graffiti and vandalism. Visit Visited again with @darbians and @vampiricsquid. Unfortunately when we visited the beds had been removed but lucky there was still a lot left to photograph. The chapel was absolutely stunning and it was nice to see that some furniture, including the desks from the classrooms were still there. All in all an excellent location to finish off our Italian adventure.
  3. Colonia B. was a holiday camp for children at the age of 6 to 12 years. Built on a small hill next to the sea in 1902 it is abandoned since 1997. #1 DSC07241 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC07208 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC07209 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC07210 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC07212 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC07213 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC07216 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC07219 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC07220 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC07221 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC07223 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC07225 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #13 DSC07226 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #14 DSC07229 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #15 DSC07231 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr
  4. A holiday camp for children ("Colonia") somewhere in Italy. What appeared to be a grey, boring concrete building from the outside turned out to be colorful from the inside... #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 For more, please visit my website: http://www.industriesafari.de/Viewer/Coloniaverde14/index.html
  5. I assume this place is known to most of the audience here... So I'll save you teh details of it's history. Unfortunately, this location is no longer untouched, but I could limit the (visible) damage with close-up shots and excessive use of the clone... #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 A few more shots on my website: http://www.industriesafari.de/Viewer/Kinderferienheim14/index.html
  6. Evening all, First Italy report from me, as you know I don't process quickly so I have quite a lot of backlog to get through plus another trip next week to contend with so its a busy time. So off the flight in the later afternoon and this was our sleeping place / first morning explore. This abandoned place was built at the end of World War II by a religious order and used to house hundreds of children to enjoy their summertime and enjoy the activities and healthy, mountainous environment. This was closed down in the 1970s. It was fairly trashed but some nice photogenic bits which are well known on the Italian side of exploring. Light was a little dark as it was raining first thing but we made the most of it. This place is going to be renovated shortly as two surveyors turned up mid morning looking for a lost laser guide and told us that the place is being developed into apartments. On with the photos Thanks for looking in.
  7. Hi mates! I'm glad to share with you my last report. There you'll see a very destroyed hotel, used as a hospital in the spanish civil war. Hope you enjoy! Cheers!
