Abbiamo letto di questo posto su Internet e siccome ci piacciono i posti strani, con la bella stagione ci siamo andati. Sembra un posto assurdo, megalomane, frutto della fantasia di un conte (se se ne... more »We read about this place on the Internet and since we like strange places, in summer we went. Sounds absurd, megalomaniac, fruit of the imagination of an Earl (if he reads the story) cha leveled a hill country to create the Las Vegas Brianza, who makes trash. The idea was not bad, definitely not appreciated and visionary. We like to immerse ourselves in the reality that we see and we stop to talk with the locals: we met a lady who was in Consonno and explained that for the few years that it had taken hold was a post working dia crazy and seemed to be at sea, with shopping and entertainment. Then the landslide or fate has stopped the whole thing. It is interesting to turn inside the building with the Minaret, originally intended for apartments and shops, to see its destruction and silence, see how shrubs and trees are recovering everything. The nursing home at the top of the climb is also abandoned, if you go down into the street below it there is also a panoramic train locomotive that impressed my son, like all the rest. Interestingly, at times disturbing, no we wouldn't never at night ... ...

Rated as one of the Top 10 haunted places in the world 😱 300,000 square meters lost in the woods. In order to build the town, first they tear down all the buildings of the ancient village then existing. The plan was to be a town for rich people with the moto "who lives in Consono lives longer ", they called it the "Las Vegas in Brianza". Builders began to break down all before them, even the stables were destroyed with the animals still inside them. People that still lived in the town were forced to live in prefabricated huts. The only buildings that were not destroyed were the church dating back to the thirteenth century, rectory and cemetery... Walking between the ruins, you can feel how beautiful was the place, during the 60's. Consonno had become an entertainment center with a huge shopping mall and restaurants that hosted great personalities of the music and entertainment for parties. On the way to Consonno, to welcome visitors, there were large signs that read "A Consonno is always festive" or "Consonno is the smallest country but the most beautiful in the world" They are a lot of versions about why everything ended, and some of them involves a ghosts.

Elia De MarchiAbandoned village and exciting, good starting point. Better get there by car, the curves that depart from Olginate is long and steep, walk up can be exhausting. Great place for an adventurous outing with friends.
Francesco CorradiniCountry constructed as theme park, its characteristic is to be completely abandoned. And it is precisely the ability to rotate between crumbling and crumbling structures that attracts visitors who pass us to walk around, take pictures or just look at the view. Strangely some dilapidated structures, although they keep a certain order while others are completely invaded by plants and nature ... a place to visit!
Simone CapelliNice place for a Sunday afternoon with friends. The visit lasts no more than a couple of hours if you visit all buildings. The most impressive part is undoubtedly the minaret.
