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
« io sono un astronautico ingegnere minerario nel sistema mentale »
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.
