Urbex and Ghost Towns

Since I wrote the article about abandoned mining sites ( here is the italian version) I’ve found myself more and more involved on what many blogs call “urbex” or “urban exploration”.
People intend this practice in many different ways, taking pictures from roofs is probably the most spectacular way of combining urban unusual points of view exploring and sport, but what I feel like while exploring is more near to what is called “taking a dead urban place to new life”.
I like abandoned sites and ruins, how they fell and what they can tell you about their hidden past.
