Visited April 2015  Italy Italy Abandoned

Villa Sbertoli is an abandoned complex in Italy that has seen many uses over the years. Originally a home, in 1868 the building was converted for use as a mental asylum by Professor Augustine Sbertoli. Later the site was used as a political prison and then turned back into an asylum once again. The buildings were closed down over 20 years ago.

Most of the buildings are now falling into a state of disrepair, however one particular building contains some beautiful Italian styling and remains in a good condition. The ornately plastered ceilings and beautifully painted art on the walls remain a testament to the buildings grand history.
