Manicomio di Cogoleto

Once the largest manicomio or asylum in Italy, Cogoleto now houses only a small number of patients, patients decided too institutionalised to live anywhere else. Opened in 1909, with views of the Mediterranean to the south and hills to the west. The asylum closed in 1992 except for the small portions still in use today.
