Il santuario della follia

Psychiatric hospital of Cogoleto (Genoa, Italy) 1910 – 1999

The asylum, founded in 1834, begins to operate in 1841. Once the structures become insufficient, in the years 1911-1913 a part of the patients were moved to the new psychiatric hospital of Cogoleto, founded in 1910 and open from 1913. The activity continues up to the definitive closing in December 1999.
