    The project "The Plague Doctor" was born after the vision of the Lazzaretto in Venice that was a structure used in the seventeenth century to accommodate the patients who had infected the plague that was spreading in Italy at that time and the famous novel by Alessandro Manzoni, "I promessi sposi ". Characteristic are the garments used by the doctors of that period: a mask in the shape of a beak as a respirator to keep away the bad smells considered, at the time, the trigger for epidemics; water repellent dress in waxed canvas with gloves, shoes and wide-brimmed hat.

    The project requires the use of two cabinets, Level 20 GT and Core P90. The idea is to cover the exterior of the cabinets to give a shape that gives the idea of a historic hospital building using different materials such as brick, tiles and windows. This solution appeared to me after seeing the exterior of the hospital, now in disuse, of Poveglia, still in Venice. The interior, on the other hand, will be decorated with scale objects by doctors of the plague and much more so as to reflect the rooms of a hospital of the time. The P90 cabinet is perfect to be adapted as "waterstation" and also from the roof of this building, in fact it will be positioned above the Level 20 GT in a horizontal way.

    Some images of a small part of the objects that will be used in the project. Specifically they are: historical surgical kit, historical syringes and finally very old pharmacy bottles.

    The exterior of the project will represent a historic building and will reflect the architectural line of the time so it will be used of suitable material such as brick, tiles and windows both for the side facades and for the roof. The interior, instead, will be decorated with material in 1:12 scale and will be: bookcase, staircase, double door, carpet, small bottle and test tubes. The material used does not end here because there will also be: hospital beds, desk with chair, books, candles, oil lamps, medical notebook and geographical map.

    To complete the work, plague doctors will obviously be there to take care of their patients. They are extremely detailed as a representation and made of resin.

    This is very strange, weird, creepy and even esoteric.

    Which is why I like it so much.

    I remember watching a documentary about the plague island in Italy. It was equally weird yet so interesting at the same time.

    Good luck with this dude. It's different and different is hard these days. I also love how you've integrated PC parts into the mask.

    Thank you so much Vault-Tec !
    Surely it is one of those particular projects that I often put in my head to realize them. :grin:
    To tell the truth it was not easy to find the right material for the project but this is the initial challenge for those who want to do modding. The search for the theme and suitable material.

    Under study. It is possible to see concretely the idea of creating a building with its roof, the Core P90 cabinet.
