This was a fun one. A small part of the hospital is still in use so there were vehicles coming and going constantly. Security kept driving up and down the main road as well like it was groundhog day so we had to stay on our toes. The hospital was built in 1930 for the treatment of people suffering from mental illness. Towards the end of WW2, in 1945, a famous massacre took place here. Seventy five Italian Social Republic soldiers were brought here as prisoners and around 50 of them were brutally executed. Some of them being tied up with wire and crushed under the wheels of two trucks. The hospital remained in use until 1991. Here's some pics:

Cheers all. Got a couple more asylums to post from this trip. Makes up for missing all the epics in the UK a few years back, sort of :D
