old "Ospedale Neuropsichiatrico della Pizzuta"

The ex "Ospedale Neuropsichiatrico della Pizzuta" (The Pizzuta Neuropsychiatric Hospital) is located in Syracuse in a suburb called Pizzuta. The building was started in 1930 and it took four years to be completed; it hosted nearly 400 hospital beds. However, over the years, in compliance with the law L 180/78 of 1978 known as "Legge Basaglia", the hospital was closed. Nowadays in that area there are many medical operative units such as an Alzheimer Centre, a Neurological Centre, a Mental Health unit and the Provincial Centre for Multiple Sclerosis.
