Homes for disabled veterans in Italy, known as Casas del Mutilato,
were built all over the country during World War I.
A bizarre form of national tourist attraction,
the name “Casa del Mutilato” cheerily translates to “House of the Mutilated.”
Add the creepy shadow of a pruned sycamore tree
and you’ve got yourself a scene straight out of a silent horror film.
Have a great time on your Italian vacation!
