This publication grew out of photographer Yvonne De Rosa's voluntary work in the early 90's at an old Italian psychiatric hospital. Recently, six years after the hospital was closed, De Rosa returned to the wards and corridors of the old and now run down building to document the vacuum left by the inmates. This reconnaissance led to a sensitive and touching study of the former patients solely through portraying the objects left behind and the words they had freely written on the walls.
