Belleza decadente made in Italy

Presentamos el proyecto de Stefano Barattini, que ha recorrido distintos lugares de Italia en los que ha fotografiado sanatorios, villas, casas rurales, hospitales psiquiátricos, fábricas y prisiones en un estado de completo abandono. El principal objetivo cultural es conservar rastros fotográficos de un patrimonio artístico y arquitectónico que se va a perder en la demolición, la destrucción o la renovación de estos edificios. Nosotros nos encanta imaginar cómo eran antes, cuando estaban vestidos con telas, colores y papeles pintados.

ENGLISH — This is Stefano Barattini’s project who has travelled around Italy in search of sanatoriums, villas, farm houses, mental hospitals, factories and prisons in a state of complete dereliction. The main cultural purpose is to keep photographic traces of an artistic and architectural heritage which is going to be lost in demolition, destruction or severe renovation of these amazing building. We like to imagine how these spaces where dressed with fabrics, colors and wallpapers.
