On a recent short trip to Italy with the family, i was lucky enough to wander around this amazing place. After getting up very early, driving for an hour in the thickest fog ever, taking a very long winded route onto the site in the pitch black i finally managed to get in, i forgot what a buzz solo explores can be, nothing quite like standing in the dark in an old asylum waiting for daylight to mess with your head.

A fantastic place to walk around, and from a photographic point of view just a pleasure to shoot.

Built in in 1871 the building was originally a hospital of charity and charitable institutions,later becoming used as an Asylum for the insane and as a military college.
The peak of admissions occurred during the world wars with the number of inpatients around one thousand. It site is made up of several pavilions "Chiarugi" one for men and one for women, "Marro" quiet men, the "Tamburini" quiet women, the "Morselli" in this category were the restraint cells intended for people defined as "acute", also including an agricultural colony to be used for occupational therapy.
The building was also used for clinical research and had it's own laboratory, one for the study of pathological anatomy, one of radiology, one of electrotherapy and an operating room for intervention in the nervous system.
The building closed in 1981.

Being built in a square meant there were some stunning corridors and junctions......
