Quite extraordinary from the outside, this villa is hidden in the hills of central Italy. The whole property consists of a huge garden, swimming pool, some sheds for dogs and probably a garage, the most eye catching is the main yellow castle-ish looking house. It used to belong to a man who was made a knight by Italian king. The owner actually had a strange interest in anatomy, pathology, science and medicine and some of his "patients" and guests used to stay in this extravagant house. It's hard to say when it was abandoned. Most of the rooms are still fully furnished and there still hasn't been to much vandalism, yet some objects got already stolen. Beds are still perfectly made, there are many personal items like clothing, hairbrush or hand-written notebook with recipes. Compared to the nicely kept ground floor, the upper parts of the villa are pretty unsafe and rooms are mostly furnished in a very simple way. I rather didn't dare to enter one of the bedrooms as the floor felt like it was collapsing. In another room the ceiling was already almost completelly collapsed, other rooms had huge cracks in the walls.

I've never seen anything quite like it. Lovely inside though.

      Sadly I couldn't get much info about this beautiful mansion.
      Located in a very little town in northen Italy, it seems that it was built between the 19th and 20th century, and abandoned during the 80s.

      Some of you may have already seen this one. This is a nice paper mill closed down almost a decade ago. There are many photos of this place when it was still active, and some of them were taken when the factory had been occupied by workers right after the closure...
      It's a rather good place still today, despite the amount of copper thieves who came here. There are still some interesting things such as the power station (probably the best part), the semi-active substation, some laboratories and archives... We also found a small container where a radioactive substance called thorium nitrate used to be stored.

      The Italians don't mess around when it comes to architecture and this old sanatorium is no exception. Built in 1924 in an art deco style, it began life as a tuberculosis hospital before being converted into a generic hospital in the 1950s. In 2015 it closed down to make way for a new hospital. Most of it has been completely emptied now but the admin building and chapel are stunning regardless. The vast network of tunnels are pretty epic as well with workshops, locker rooms and some odd looking stretchers amongst other things down there. They connect every single building in the complex so you can access certain buildings that are sealed from outside. It's a big old place with a lot to see. I've been twice and still not seen it all.
