Since many years we knew this manicomio of the italian south but we never tried to go there. It's not the best place to be cause of the crime in this region. Italians warned us that we had to take care of our gear if we explore this region. Sometimes it's not good to hear to many stories cause you begin to think too much of it while exploring. This areal is really huge but we coulnd't explore everything cause we heard and saw guys who stole things there with using heavy tools. We didn't want to meet them, so we had to skip some parts. Few years ago there must be some untouched parts but now nearly every part is vandalized, empty or full of mess and most things you can sell are taken. I've never seen so many corridors with Cells before, this must be a really bad place for the mental deseased patients once.

I only took pictures of the interesting things:

I always love seeing the Italian asylums, and this is no exception. Really nice.

Captured very well! I like the light & colors in the second pic, as well as the light rays.

The reward seems to have been well worth the risk! 

I love these photos - there is beauty there even though there must have been a desperate place at one time.

      This is a very popular textile factory in Italy. It is very big, it even has a power plant which used to power the whole structure when it was functioning. We stayed there for like 4 hours and managed to explore maybe only 2/3 of the place (or even less)... Entering there was tricky because all the doors has recently been welded (even that one which was used by all the explorers) and the only remaining access was 3 meters away from a couple in a car while doing... nothing, literally. They were just sitting in their car doing nothing... So we had to improvise a little bit. When we got out we almost got spotted by a very slow police car so I instantly layed down inside the cabin at the entrance (I was taking a picture there) and my mate hid himself behind of it. We even heard the police radio a few meters away from us. After a few minutes we saw the car moving away from us, and then we managed to get out.
      That was honestly funny lol

      Some months ago I went to explore this abandoned middle school. Since it is almost completely vandalized, there is nothing special inside (exept maybe for the wooden chair you will see), but what made me so curious about this structure was its architecture, very modern and... unusual for a school. Since it was raining and we didn't have any umbrellas, I couldn't take many pictures from outside; I also tried to climb onto the top, but for the same reason I stayed there only for a few seconds (the camera I was using wasn't even mine and was really expensive, so I was scared to ruin it).

      I already visited this former school in Italy last summer.
       
      I don't know if the rumor is true; but I heard that the globe is not original. Allegedly, the previously existing globe was stolen. Then, so is said, a photographer brought another globe and put it there. But as I said, I don't know if this story is true.
      Anyway, there were other beautiful things in this school along with old maps.
       
      Mostly you can only see photos of the one classroom with the globe online. That's why it was important for me to photograph and show other rooms from there as well.

      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 ...

      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.
