Villa Sbertoli was built in the early 1800s by wealthy merchant Agostino Sbertoli.  He had a disabled son and so he decided to turn the villa into a psychiatric hospital, whom he tried to cure all his life.  During WW2 the Nazis used it as a prison for POW's and after the war it was turned back into a psychiatric hospital.  In 1990 it was closed and abandoned by the City of Pistoia, Italy.
