  1. From the outside it was obvious that the building was abandoned. Next door, children were playing in the yard of the adjacent school, while we entered the former residence through an open door. Some parts of the villa were already very ruinous or even collapsed, but the beautiful wall and ceiling paintings were fortunately largely still preserved. I thought I'd already posted this house in the forum. But I was obviously mistaken, because I couldn't find it here. Apparently I'm getting old and confused ... 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17
  2. It had rained the day before my visit. Therefore, the steep slope that I climbed up alone to this abandoned, Italian villa on a hill, had turned into a muddy slide. The way up was correspondingly arduous and painstaking. I slipped off several times and within minutes my clothes were half soaked and completely dirty. But I didn't want to give up and fought my way up. Once there, I had to walk through bushes and a nettle-overgrown garden, until I finally reached the open access at the back of the building. But the effort was absolutely worth it. On the ground floor was a hall with columns and a fireplace. However, the most magnificent room was on the first floor. Great wall and ceiling paintings, mirrors on both sides, a skylight with broken glass, several statues and faces made of stone; and everything embedded in sad decay. This room was simply impressive, and overwhelming beautiful. Subsequently, I still discovered a fountain with a statue in the back of the garden. For the way down, I chose another route. This one was a little easier, although at the end I had to climb over a fence, to get out. But fortunately, I wasn't seen doing that by the residents of the property, and that was the main thing. 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. This italian house behind large, closed iron gates at the entrance of the property (also called Villa Pompous / Villa Zombo / Villa dei Levrieri / Villa del Levriero / Villa PDO...) is located within a small forest, so it can't be seen directly from the street. From the outside the villa looks quite modern and also inside some things are just fake (so the ceiling isn't made of stucco, but partly only of polystyrene panels). Annoyingly, all the lamps were stolen and partially destroyed in the meantime, including two large crystal chandeliers. Also, the two ornamental pommels (knobs) in the form of greyhounds at the end of the red velvet-covered handrail of the banister has been stolen. Fortunately, at least the wall and ceiling paintings such as the ornately carved wooden doors are still preserved. Unfortunately I don't know anything about the history of the house or about the former inhabitants. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 12 13 14 15 16
  4. The (now ruinous) 18th-century villa with conservatories was purchased by the wealthy merchant Giuseppe Calamai, consul of Russia, in 1771 and used as a country estate. Due to financial difficulties, the Calamai family was forced to sell the villa in 1821 to Count Giovanni Giraud. A few years later the villa became the property of the Polish prince Stanisław Poniatowski. After his death in 1833, his widow sold the estate in 1847 to the rich Greek merchant Pandely Maurogordato. Maurogordato extended the building magnificently and he set up gardens and a large park - planted with palm trees, cedars of Lebanon, pines of Aleppo, eucalyptus, lime trees, plane trees, holm oaks, cypresses and oaks. During the Second World War, the family had to leave the villa, and in 1949, the heirs sold the entire property to the "provincial antitubercular consortium". In 1973, the consortium leased the park and buildings to the community, until it was finally abandoned. Although the villa is a listed building, it has been falling into ruin for a long time. Today, in its ruinous condition, you can only guess the former glory of this once splendid villa and its two conservatories. The entrance to the ruin was not too difficult. I just had to crawl through a low hole in the back area. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13
  5. Meanwhile, this Italian villa of a football coach is pretty well known, and several things has changed there. Only a dusty dirt road leads to it and from outside the house looks quite inconspicuous. But once again proves: Don't judge a book by its cover...! 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26
  11. 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 everything went well, without any crash or collapse. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
  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
  13. A. E. was a successful craftsman building music instruments. He met a girl, married her and became father of two kids. Sadly he died early. His wife, getting older, decided to bequeath everything to the kids. But she became very old and outlived her kids. When Ms E. died she was 99 years old and bequeathed the house to a religious order. For more than 10 years the house faded in obscurity. This is what remained after all those years. #1 DSC02496-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC02499-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC02500-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC02503-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC02501-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC02505-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC02506-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC02508-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC02509-Bearbeitet-2-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC02511-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC02515-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC02514-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #13 DSC02516-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #14 DSC02517-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #15 DSC02518-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #16 DSC02522-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #17 DSC02523-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #18 DSC02546-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #19 DSC02525-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #20 DSC02526-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #21 DSC02527-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #22 DSC02531-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #23 DSC02539-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #24 DSC02537-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #25 DSC02535-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #26 DSC02532-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #27 DSC02533-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #28 DSC02541-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #29 DSC02550-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #30 DSC02553-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #31 DSC02558-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #32 DSC02555-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #33 DSC02569-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #34 DSC02565-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #35 DSC02566-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #36 DSC02563-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #37 DSC02559-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr
  14. Built in the early 1700s, and modified during the 1800s, the external stables have recently collapsed.
  15. This was the first stop in Italy with Elliot5200 & @shaddam last month. I don't know any history unfortunately but it's a stunning building and I wouldn't mind living in it! I normally write a lot more than this but I'm not sure what else to say. Oh, we went for a pizza afterwards. Pics: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. & 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. Thanks for looking
  16. Villa Scorpio History Unfortunately I couldn't find a great deal of history surrounding this location but from what I have gathered it was built at some point during the late 19th century. The former occupier owned a large cement factory in the same town. I would imagine the family were quite well off, as it was very grand and exquisite building. The design of the villa shared various similarities with the Art Nouveau style of architecture. Featuring a stunning staircase, a beautiful skylight and an decorative greenhouse. Our visit Visited with @darbians and @vampiricsquid on our tour of Italy last summer. As soon as we arrived outside, we knew it was going to be a good explore. Hope you enjoy my photos!

  19. Hidden behind the trees of a small wood I found this nice mansion. It is abandoned at least since 4 years and nevertheless happily free of any kind of vandalism. #1 DSC00404-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC00449-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC00423-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC00422-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC00444-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC00410-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC00417-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC00413-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC00445-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC00412-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC00446-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #13 DSC00408-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #14 DSC00409-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #15 DSC00406-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #16 DSC00448-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #17 DSC00443-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #18 DSC00442-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #19 DSC00424-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #20 DSC00426-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #21 DSC00436-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #22 DSC00437-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #23 DSC00441-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #24 DSC00428-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #25 DSC00439-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #26 DSC00432-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #27 DSC00430-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr
  20. 1: Villa W. by P Z, on Flickr 2: Villa W. by P Z, on Flickr 3: Villa W. by P Z, on Flickr 4: Villa W. by P Z, on Flickr 5: Villa W. by P Z, on Flickr We visited this Villa in may of this year. Seems the owner is a bit more cautious these days and sents people away sometimes being a bit aggressive. We only dealt with 2 people getting flowers in the garden which left us alone after giving us a 'dark' look after i said 'photography, ok?' Great Villa must have been impressive when the director of the nearby chocolate factory lived here. The factory we didn't explore, to many people outside. grts, Peter
  21. Built in 1884 Villa S. ist regarded as the first casino at this coast. After decades of desertion and decay it burned down in 2006. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 #9 #10 #11 #12 #13
  22. An abandoned villa, named SS after the town it resides in. Not much to say really, a waste of a perfectly good house! Not my usual kind of explore if I'm honest but it made a change and kept @Miss.Anthropehappy! Same room but with the balcony doors opened to allow the sunlight in Thanks for looking
  23. Once upon a time there was a prosperous father and his mentally ill son. Instead of giving the son to lunatic asylum he decided to try to cure his son on his own. Breathing his last the father willed to spend all of his property to the research of mental illness. According to his directive Villa Sbertoli was converted into a lunatic aylum after his death. During the times several buildings and a huge park were added. The asylum has been closed in the 1970s. The paintings in the cellar witness the inhabitants situation at the asylum. Although mainly the Villa appears very to be "decoratetd" Villa Sbertoli I felt it's a very impressive place. #1 DSC07975 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC07942 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC07943 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC07945 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC07946 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC07970 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC07952 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC07953 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC07969 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC07947 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC07948 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC07950 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #13 DSC07949 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #14 DSC07955 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #15 DSC07956 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #16 DSC07957 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #17 DSC07959 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #18 DSC07944 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #19 DSC07971 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #20 DSC07973 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #21 DSC07979 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #22 DSC07980 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #23 DSC07981 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #24 DSC07983 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #25 DSC07984 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #26 DSC07985 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #27 DSC07987 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #28 DSC07988 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr
  24. There wasn't much to see at Villa amante del sole but I really love its architecture. Built in the 1930s the whole building was able to rotatet 360 degrees - following the sun. Unfortunately I couldn't visit the whole surrounding of the villa as I felt not to be alone. #1 DSC07902 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC07901 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC07900 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC07899 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC07889 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC07898 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC07885 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC07897 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC07896 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC07887 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC07895 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr
