The sad story of the Gaiola Islands

On the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea in the Gulf of Naples there are a couple of the most picturesque islands connected by a thin bridge. The trail of death islands remained behind them. You must admit that this stigma somehow makes you feel uncomfortable and freezes your blood in your veins.

So where does this passion come from? It is said that a hermit sorcerer once lived in caves on the island. He lived alone, grew vegetables and fruits. After the hermit, no one settled on the islands for a long time. But at the beginning of the 20th century, a villa appeared in these picturesque places, but its owner soon died.

Further - more almost like in an adventure film. In the 20s of the last century, the island was bought by Hans Brown, who married a beautiful girl. Soon after the wedding, the young wife went to the mainland, and upon her return she found her husband's corpse rolled up in a carpet. Soon the beauty herself was found murdered. After the young couple, another man was found who risked living on the island of Gaiola. But his life path was cut short just as suddenly.

The Gaiola Islands were increasingly notorious. Subsequent owners of the island also died or committed suicide. The last private owner of the Italian Gaiola Islands was Fiat Gianni Agnelli, an Italian entrepreneur, the main shareholder of FIAT. He bought the island, but has never been here. The sad fate of the previous owners of the villa went through the new owner. First, his son Eduardo committed suicide, then his beloved nephew Giovanni Alberto, to whom Gianni was going to transfer his business, died. A few years later, the "King of the Apennines" himself, as the automobile tycoon was called, was gone.

After that, to this day, the Gaiola Islands do not belong to anyone and there are no longer any who wish to acquire them. The villa is abandoned, and the islands themselves are gradually sinking under the water, the buildings are dilapidated and even sprouted by trees. The sad incidents that happened to the owners of these places contribute to staying away from them.
