Explore the town of light

Wired Productions Collaborates with London South Bank University to Create an In-Depth Photo and Video Showcase of The Real Italian Asylum Which Inspired The Town of Light Video Game

Today we are delighted to announce that we have teamed up with London South Bank University to unveil a new website which explores, through a series of stunning imagery and video footage, the real location that inspired The Town of Light video game!

Wes flew a student at London South Bank University, Alexandra Furssedonn Howard, to Volterra, Italy to document the now defunct ‘Ospedale Psichiatrico di Volterra’ complex and surrounding area for a three-day shoot. Inspired by the peeling paint, abandoned furniture, and ominous mannequins, Alexandra looked to her love of gothic horror and the psychological when creating the Volterra art film and accompanying photographic galleries.

Set within the sleepy Tuscan village of Volterra against picture-perfect, rolling countryside, the ramshackle remains of the asylum have been expertly captured through a series of breathtaking photographs and videos – all available to view on this specially created website, link below:


The website, produced in association with The Town of Light, has been specifically created as a companion guide for urban explorers and fans of the game alike. Allowing visitors uncompromising access to many of the asylum’s most inaccessible nooks and crannies including the Charcot pavilion, in which The Town of Light finds its setting. This digital exhibit provides a thrilling, often jaw-dropping accompaniment to the player’s in-game experiences.
