Ghost Towns of Italy
This small collection of Ghost Towns of Italy represent some of the most evocative places in the country.
Abandoned either due to economic reasons or due to natural disasters, these villages although devoid of residents offer a fascinating glimpse into the past.
The ghost analogy actually works on several levels: the fact that these towns and villages were once thriving communities but now just a shell of their former selves creates a hollow feeling. We can also use another ghostly word here: spooky, as there's definitely an unsettling atmosphere that's quite thrilling at the same time.
