Since the end of the 1970s when Law n. 180 decreed the closure of mental hospitals, the architectural and community characteristics of former Italian psychiatric hospitals has so far remained unexplored. The 2008 Prin research on this question, which was also to result in a geographical computer database connected with the National Archive System, laid the foundations for putting concrete processes in motion to safeguard this huge tangible and intangible heritage in which the traces of a ‘care system’ are inscribed, which reflects the features of Italian society since the first years of the young unified state. Although of value from many viewpoints, former public sector psychiatric hospitals in underused and run down areas can in fact become a concrete opportunity for integrated conservation action and urban recovery to make use of them for social utility purposes on a different scale.
