Asylum of Volterra

Ex – Manicomio di Volterra

18 December 2016

Volterra is a small Italian town in Tuscany, founded in Etruscan age. In the historic center it is located a castle at time of the Medici, is now a  prison state… a prison in medieval style XD.

But, there is also an abandoned asylum where his most famous guest was Oreste Fernando Nannetti called NOF4

Castle – Prison

The population of the asylum has achieved up 4900 patients, a very big number, certainly the real mental patients were much lower. The site included vegetable gardens and workshops where the patients had worked. They had the double function: self-reliance for the asylum and Therapy for Patients.

Asylum of Aguscello

Manicomio infantile di Aguscello

03 April 2016

Reading on the Internet the history of this place, you should be afraid to meet with the presence of some ghost of some children hospitalized into the structure, or the presence of satanic Mass… in theory

This is the first thing you encounter just walked in

Manicomio Aguscello by Alessandro Vito Lipari on

This is the major corps of the asylum, we entered the room of boilers in the basement to go up the first floor, further it was too dangerous, the structure is very run down.

Inside the asylum instead it is full of stupid written, fascist and penises drawings, PENIES! Why! ah no ghost has been seen, maybe they have more taste.

Asyulm of Collegno

Ex-Ospedale Psichiatrico Certosa di Collegno

Colegno 2014-06-08 096

8 June 2014

During this period I worked in Turin, and on Friday evenings I often went to the events organized by Onirica, which took place in Collegno and I completely ingored that it was an ex – asylum.

One day I found a photo exhibition about an asylum in Collegno, curiously I set route on navigator and I left, so I found out that every Friday night I went to dance into the hospital’s  laundry room.

The royal Charterhouse of Collegno was first a monastery of the Carthusian monks from the second half of the 1600s, to become a Royal Madhouse since 1851.

The ERGOTHERAPY was practiced, the treatment of diseases through work, which acted as an intermediary between the patient and the surrounding environment, in this way he regained self-confidence by reactivating attitudes compromised by the pathology. The internees were often people who had physical problems, deformities and not necessarily mental illness. It is possible to observe the patient cells, the huge pavilions and the immense park of about 400,000 m2 inside the structure.
The guests of the Charterhouse were engaged in the work in the fields which served not only as a therapy, but also to support the structure itself.
