Italy Colonia Montana - September '14

Recommended Posts

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.

A very nice place, and also captured very well. My favourites are the pics 1 & 5. :) 

Stupid idiots who sprayed the "A's" on he wall...

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      The palace was built in the 14th - 15th centuries and extended especially in the second half of the 17th century. Recently, the aristocratic estate was inhabited by a painter & artist.
      I don't know since when the palace is abandoned.
       
      Access was through lots of scrub and stinging nettles. Inside, unfortunately, a lot has been stolen in recent years. Such as art books, easels and a telescope. But the place is still very nice.
