Hi, my name is Matteo and I'm from Italy. I've been into urbex for like 2-3 years but, since I usually don't have someone to go with, my visits are very few at the moment, but I hope to do it more and more as soon as possible. Even if I'm not so active in the "practical way", me and one of my friends are mapping all the abandoned places in Italy and now we have more than 2000 sites (and there is so much good stuff there...)!

I signed up here because I "feel" that a foreign urbex community is far better than the Italian one, so here I am. I hope to make you guys understand me even if English isn't my first language...

Nice to meet you and have a nice day :)

 

P.S
My nick is an allusion to Urbanturizm, the Youtube channel that made me fall in love with urban exploration, you should definitely check it out if you don't know it.

Hey Matteo, fellow newbie here.  How were you able to build a list of abandoned places?  Some of that is not public info for obvious reasons.  Tnx and welcome.

      Hey, hello to all from Chicago.
      I've ended up poking around on this site more than a few times researching locations and sites to explore, so seems fair to contribute some of my finds :-)
      Live and work here in the Midwest, USA, but also live and work a month or two a year in Eastern Europe, so I'll have reports from both regions.
      My interest in Urbex started over 3 decades ago scavenging some refractory bricks out of the old Wisconsin Steel plant (South Chicago) and I have continued exploring ever since.
      Thanks to everyone who has already contributed and I look forward to participating.
      Staklo

      Found you guys on an email from olympus about photographing abandoned places... 
       
      I'd always been fascinated with urban explorers and their photographic adventures.  Hope to find like minded people here.

      Long time lurker, first post!

      I've always been fascinated by Urbanex photography but despite this I've never done any.  We had a talk at our camera club in Bracknell Monday just gone and I've been inspired to finally go and do some.  I'm not sure what there is around me that I can start with but once the snow dies down I'll go and have a look around and see what's about
       
      Anyway, hope to follow up with another post containing photos in the not to distant future!
