Ghost Towns
A B A N D O N E D    V I L L A G E s    I N    I T A L Y

The visualization shows "ghost towns" in Italy selected by www.paesifantasma.it. Villages are divided by antiquity, abandonment’s reason (natural disaster, adverse location, dam construction, plague) and visit (free, under condition, forbidden, submerged town).
On the right, a town per region has been chosen based on popularity, drawing then attention to its topography, village typology (rural, with castle, mountain, fortified, sheltered), condition (good, mediocre, ruins) and how long it has been abandoned.
