Cool.

I stumbled across this today poking around the internet:

Strange Geographies: the Happy, Haunted Island of Poveglia

The story of an island in the Venice Lagoon that has an old abandoned insane asylum...for starters.  Very cool article and there are a series by the author that you can find on his web site.  And you can read about Poveglia here!

Holy cow, that is awesome. I can't believe the locals want to downplay rumors that the soil is 50% human ash.
