The ever interesting Pete Brook sent me over a link to this fascinating and rather depressing story…(sorry…don’t shoot the messenger)…Italian asylums for the criminally insane, by (ex duckrabbit student) Valentina Quintano. The interview, for me, is rather more interesting than the images, which are not really ‘doing it’ for me…I feel like I’ve seen them before, when I haven’t… but no matter, I still learned something.
“Most of the people jailed in such institutions are not considered dangerous anymore but there are no structures to host them and help them to be introduced back into society, so they are just left there. In many cases until they leave in a black bag.”
Thanks Valentina, thanks Pete.
