    Default L'Ospedale Psichiatrico Spada, Italia. 2016


    L'Ospedale Psichiatrico Spada is a huge asylum located within a large town in Italy.
    Built in 1870, the site consists of multiple buildings within large walled grounds and catered mainly for insane patients. Later it became a military college.




    There are two main buildings; 1 was for men and the other for women. In these areas were containment cells, and these were intended for patients listed as "acute".
    At the asylum there were many different types of patients. On the first floor, there were rooms for the most "normal" patients. At the higher levels were the patients who needed the most attention.

    This asylum also had facilities for occupational therapy, a laboratory of clinical research, pathological anatomy, and area for radiology, electrotherapy and an operating theatre for operations to the nervous system.


    Almost every large building in Italy has it's own chapel or church. So this asylum has it too.


    Of course a hospital is made to help people. So this surgery was to operate on and (hopefully) heal people.


    The last shot shows an office. It contained beautiful cabinet. The room next to this was damaged in a fire and had scorch marks. The floor is completely blackened with many holes and against the wall there are the remnants of a similar cabinet. Shortly after my visit this room had collapsed.


    The asylum closed it's doors in the end of the 20th century when many of these asylums by law had to be shut down, so it has been abandoned ever since.

    Yup - fab pix. I want to see more please.

    As a rough rule of thumb you need to post between 10-30 pictures of a place which includes both externals and internals.

    The guideline is:

    "Your report should also contain around 10-15 of your best photos, and if possible please include internal and external shots so we get a good overview of the building."
