Dark School of Music - Italy, July 2018

It was day six of our Italy road trip when we were reaching the Dark School of Music. It's a massive structure located in the hilly landscape of northwest Italy. This high-lying college is dominating the whole vicinity and is already visible from far away. Luckily, we were bringing much time because there’s so much to discover!

We were entering the huge boarding school via the old sports hall. It isn’t a problem to get inside here because one side is missing a complete wall – which actually must have been pretty cool back then when the facility was still active. But imagine having gym class here in the winter… We were surprised about the bad condition of this building. On the pictures we have seen before the whole place looked much more pristine. But we guess those images were outdated and by now the local youth has destroyed large parts of the college. This is actually one of the most vandalized places we have explored on our Italy adventure. Although this is a proper concrete structure, so we didn't have to be worried about rotten floors or something similar.

This boarding school was constructed in the 1960s. But only around 20 years later the facility was already shut down. In the past, 200 students could live here at the same time. Next to dorm rooms for the kids and their classrooms we also discovered an auditorium, multiple chapels, offices and rooms for the educators, a hospital ward and much more. The dimensions of the structure are just overwhelming!

As it seems, this was a religious school with a special focus on art. Especially music was taught here apparently. In several classrooms we are discovering old music books. Urban explorers are calling this abandoned place "Dark School of Music". What an ominous name, right? However, this class on the next image is the most popular photo motive of the derelict college and the room is just super dark. Hence the name. Unfortunately, vandals have already been tearing apart the classroom.

This is our personal highlight of the old college: The big chapel. There's relatively little vandalism here. Apparently, even the brutes are in awe of the Lord's house.

Earlier we told you that there's also an auditorium. In the past, there were probably enough seats for all those 200 students and even more people. But for three decades the former boarding school is lying in ruins now.

It remains a mystery to us why the place was shut down only 20 years after its big inauguration. It was a Roman Catholic institution that was running the facility. Maybe they simply didn't have enough funds to keep such a large and remote site in good condition. It's also hard to find new buyers, because what is anyone to do with such a rundown structure? And so this concrete block will decay further and probably soon released for demolition.

Loved the Huge Auditorium and the video shot of the ivy covered window with the chair thrown into it. Those shots make for interesting views as well as a feel of the place. This College is totally amazing and i was very happy to see your latest adventures in Italy. The next episode looks very sad and creepy. Cant wait to see what you guys found. Till Next time! Keep Exploring!

The chapel and the auditorium look insane and the landscape in the drone shot is beautiful. Did you explore the whole place or was it just too big?

Oh, this music school just looks incredible, very cool and amazing. I wonder how did their studies go? It’s very difficult in my music school now, I even want to use https://phdessay.c...essays-on/disease/ to not fly out, because it is incredibly difficult in theory. What would you understand, I took essays on disease from the site, because there was a task to write about the illness of one musician
