Napoleon was here

Mombello di Limbiate. Monza Brianza. Italy.
We must go back to XIV century to see the birth of this place.
After four centuries, Stefano Gaetano Crivelli transforms it in a wonderful and luxurious villa which will also be Napoleon headquarters during the Italian Campaign.
After the glorious past, in the early 19th century, it has been abandoned and has been later purchased by the Municipality of Milan, which in 1863 restructuring it and turn into a psychiatric hospital.

You walk around this place which had locked in its walls people who lost their sanity.
You enter in the old shabby houses, with broken windows and masonry on the ground.
You try to control anxiety…are you succeeding?
