Nice pictures!

Even if these are different places, it would be nice to know something about the buildings. For example you could write something about the history and / or a short report about the exploration.

I was taken to them buy a Italian urbexer and we spent 2 full on days and 1200k's going all over the show so I have very little info to give . 

 

All I know is that they are in the north of Italy , 1st , 2nd , 3rd and 7th photos are the remains of a 1920'ish hydroelectric and the 4th , 5th and 6th photos was 1950ish coal or gas  . 7th photo shows some words on the far wall , I understand that they mean "No smoking" . Some switch boards around that plant were made out of solid slabs of marble up to 2m high with bare wires linking the connectors behind them so it must of been very dangerous working around them !   Both had newer operating  power stations running right along side them so it wasnt easy to get in especially the first one  , matter of fact I am very lucky that I didnt brake a leg getting back over a high fence , in a bit of a panic when we heard a car coming I went to  quickly jump into long grass from the top of the 2.5m high fence . The leg of my jeans got cort on the top of the fence , somehow I managed to still land upright  . 

 

Sorry that I cant tell you where but  I couldnt even find my way back to them if you  gave me transport to go there ! 

 

I have a load more photos from that insane  2 days that I will share at a later date .

Thank you.

Just to avoid misunderstandings: It was not about finding out where the places are or to know their real names. It's simply nicer to add a little report to the photos as well. That's all. :)

      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addition to beautiful statues, I also found several old tombs there, which partly seemingly fell into oblivion and are no longer maintained.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.

      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.

      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!

      The small and simple house is a building that might be overlooked pretty easily. Yet, upon entering the small world of the former owner reveals itself. Anna's small realm appeared simple but pretty cosy as well. Faith was visible part of her life. She was a nun who was also engaged in missionary work abroad. According to speculations the sister never came back home from a foreign mission in a crisis region. To what extent the rumours of her disappearance are true is probably always going to stay an unsolved mystery.

      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.
