Photographer uncovers Italy’s most extraordinary abandoned buildings

An amateur photographer has spent the last four years scouring Italy for its most remarkable abandoned buildings.

During holidays from his home in the Netherlands, Roman Robroek, 30, took these eerie shots of deserted castles and churches up and down Italy.

Roman, a manager at an ICT service provider, has explored the Mediterranean area for spectacular architecture which has been left to rot.

Roman said: “In these photos I’ve tried to capture the beauty and the architecture of abandoned places in Italy.”

Places like these can be very old, carrying lots of history with them, and often a lot of craftsmanship went into constructing or decorating the building. (Caters News)
