Über Italien / About Italy

Es gibt kaum ein Land wo sich so viele außergewöhnliche und verlassene Orte finden lassen wie in Italien. Grade im Norden des Landes finden sich zahlreiche alte Sanatorien, Krankenhäuser und Psychiatrien. Dem italienischen Psychiater Franco Basaglia ist es z.B. zuverdanken das die katastrophalen Zustände und Methoden in den italienischen Psychiatrien aufgedenkt worden sind und 1978 deren Schließung erfolgte. Aber auch viele Schlösser in Italien stehen leer. So machte eine Immobilienagentur 2017 mit einer extravaganten Aktion auf den Leerstand aufmerksam und verschenkte rund 100 Villen und Schlösser.

There is rarely a country where you can so many extraordinary and deserted places as in Italy. Numerous old sanatoriums, hospitals, and psychiatric centers are located in the north. The Italian psychiatrist Franco Basaglia is to thank for that the catastrophic conditions and methods in the Italian psychiatry are remembered to this day, and of course, that they were closed in 1978. Many castles in Italy are also empty. In 2017, a real estate agency drew attention to the vacancy of the castles with an extravagant campaign and gave away around 100 villas and castles.
