Hi everyone! This is my first report on 28dayslater, so let me introduce myself. My name is Jessey, 18 years old and i've been a passionate explorer such early 2015. Since then i've already explored a lot of just stunning places in countries like; Italy, Belgium, Holland, Germany and France. I also recently started documenting these beautiful places in the form of video, in these video's I tell the often interesting stories of these locations.
Thanks for reading! I'm very excited to post more in this forum!

History:
This power plant was constructed at the begin of the 1900s. The power plant was a hydro electric plant so this means that water with a strong current was necessary for the production of electricity. The purpose was to power a huge facility built around the power plant which made calcium carbide, this was used mostly for agriculture. At the end of the 1930s an extensive renovation occurred which added a huge art deco glass window for the control room. Unfortunately after the second world war the demand for calcium carbide decreased, in 1972 this facility closed for good due to this. Now 47 years later the main turbine hall is heavily decayed, which resulted this stunning combination of vintage industry and heavy decay. But the site also had another hidden highlight and that was a second turbine hall. This hall was a huge contrast from the other one, because this one was still in mint condition without any stupid graffiti or vandalism in general.

I really enjoyed this location, you just gotta love Italy for giving us such great locations.
