Italy Preventorio R. - 09/2016

Recommended Posts

To get to Preventorio R which has been a childrens sanatorium deep in the mountains of Italy was a real torture. Riding on my Vespa through Italy I'm used to navigate by listening to Google Maps on my earphones.  After hours of riding Google suddenly instructed me to turn left on a really steep and curvy gravel path that didn't allow more than the first gear for about 10km. Finally arriving at the Preventorio i realised that it is situated next to a well developed main street.   F*** Google Maps Navigation! 
But it turned out to be  worth the effort.

      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.
