Red Cross Hospital was a children’s home in Italy. The abandoned building features an impressive chapel with a large red cross painted onto the ceiling which is now somewhat faded. The dormitories still contain the metal beds and give a creepy feeling to the building. The building is well preserved considering it closed in the 1980s.
At 1100 metres above sea level the air in this region of Italy is surprisingly clean and pure – so much so the area is famous for its healthy air. For a time many facilities were built high up in the mountains to take advantage of this. Usually owned by various religious orders, they would welcome children and their families during the summer holidays.
