Ospizio Sacra Famiglia

THE ABANDONED HOSPITAL IN ITALY


‘Ospizio Sacra Famiglia’ is part of an Italian institute that provides treatment and care to mentally and physical disabled people from the Milan district.

The Fondazione Istituto Sacra Famiglia was founded in 1896 by priest Don Domenico Pogliani. He started practically from nothing, Pogliani only used his few savings and the donations of some benefactors. In 1919 when the founding priest died, his successor, Luigi Moneta, remarkably expanded the foundation: 18 new wards were opened, including this now abandoned hospice in Premeno.

Today, the dormitories are still full of beds and bedside tables, ordered in their repetitive arrangement. On the second floor there is a chapel where once the mass was recited every Sunday. I took these photos of the building in 2014 on my roadtrip through Italy.
