Italy Red Cross Hospital - visited September 2014

Recommended Posts

Evening all,

Seems like my 2nd report from Italy is another hospital.

This is quite a well known spot in Italy but still quite photogenic.

Abandoned sometime ago and was previously used by the Red Cross to treat children hence the amount of dormitories. The famous chapel, which the red cross after which its named is fading fast. A lot of this was derelict and with some rain, a lot of it was pouring in.

On with the photos.

      The (now ruinous) 18th-century villa with conservatories was purchased by the wealthy merchant Giuseppe Calamai, consul of Russia, in 1771 and used as a country estate. Due to financial difficulties, the Calamai family was forced to sell the villa in 1821 to Count Giovanni Giraud.
       
      A few years later the villa became the property of the Polish prince Stanisław Poniatowski. After his death in 1833, his widow sold the estate in 1847 to the rich Greek merchant Pandely Maurogordato. Maurogordato extended the building magnificently and he set up gardens and a large park - planted with palm trees, cedars of Lebanon, pines of Aleppo, eucalyptus, lime trees, plane trees, holm oaks, cypresses and oaks.
      During the Second World War, the family had to leave the villa, and in 1949, the heirs sold the entire property to the "provincial antitubercular consortium". In 1973, the consortium leased the park and buildings to the community, until it was finally abandoned.
       
      Although the villa is a listed building, it has been falling into ruin for a long time. Today, in its ruinous condition, you can only guess the former glory of this once splendid villa and its two conservatories.
      The entrance to the ruin was not too difficult. I just had to crawl through a low hole in the back area.

      I found the house with the red dress by coincidence - discovered this summer while visiting the "Chiesa in tempesta e pioggia". The house was right next to this church, and obviously it was also abandoned.
      The access way and the property were already quite overgrown. The old wooden door just stood open, so the house literally invited me to take a look inside.
       
      It seems the building has been originally a mill and was probably rebuilt for living only later. As a decorative element, the large millstone was still in the middle of the living room.
      Upstairs were various pieces of furniture with floral paintings from the time of historicism (1850-1890). Furthermore, in front of the house was an old wooden cart / hay wagon, which was also decorated with floral paintings.
      All in all, a nice chance find. Besides, really great, absolutely no vandalism there.

      I had been waiting to do this one for a month or so; but simply hadn't found the time to hop on the M40 and up to Brum.  
      It was a good opportunity to meet up with some explorers whom I have been chatting to for the best part of ten years or so and do an explore at the same time!  
       
      We arrived here mid morning one Sunday and once inside; the beauty of the place was revealed!  I really loved this place.  
       
      Again though; it was full of the new age era of explorers; about a dozen of them, some videoing and some just shooting photos.  It's rare you bump into a person on explores, but lately its been every explore.  This one was flavour of the month back in the summer though!!
       
      After the explore, we went to Costco for a cheap lunch in the canteen there and had a nice, chilled drive around the local area looking for other sites

      The Hall, built between 1903 and 1904 by architects Ewan Harper and James Harper and the terracotta was made by Gibbs and Canning ltd of Tamworth, is situated at the northern end of Corporation Street in Birmingham. 
       
      The hall is a 3 storey red brick and terracotta building with Grade II Listing on it, with  2000 seats in the main halll over 30 additional rooms including 3 school halls. 
      By 1991, the building had been converted into a nightclub which closed in 2002, but reopened as the Q Club in 2007. 
      This club's last event at the premises was "Flashback" in 2011. During its time as a Night Club 3 deaths were reported.  
      -A punter jumped off the tower in 1998 
      -A clubber OD'd in 2000 
      -A stabbing outside in 2008. 
      The Club reopened in 2012, but closed in 2016.  
       
      In 2018; Birmingham city council granted planning permission to convert it into a 147 room hotel costing £35 million.
      Works have begun and are expected to be complete by 2020.
       
      I just love the contrast between old and new here; with the older Methodists Hall and the big, modern buildings springing up around it.  There is a live part of the building and as we were there, a Gospel Band were practicing literally behind the wall; a strong scent of Jerk Chicken was filling the rooms of the abandoned part.

      Meanwhile, this Italian villa of a football coach is pretty well known, and several things has changed there.
      Only a dusty dirt road leads to it and from outside the house looks quite inconspicuous. But once again proves: Don't judge a book by its cover...!
