      History:
       
      Manicomio Di R was built in 1870 as an place for the poor, but after a couple of years it was transformed into an mental asylum. Electroshock therapy was used extensively here, along with experimental operations on the nervous system. Facilities included a laboratory of clinical research, one of pathology, one radiology, one of electrotherapy and an operating room for intervention to the nervous system. 
       
      This asylum closed down in the 90s due to new laws for beter health care for the patients and the building was completely outdated.

      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).
       
      Here is the complete album.
       

       

       
      "-RiP- You were and remain unique, grandpa"
      (I found that chair in that position)

      The main Hartwood Hospital building block with central towers with side wings was designed and built from 1890 by the local architect J L Murray from Biggar as the Lanark District Asylum covering the Lanarkshire area. The hospital closed in 1999
