This paper reviews the work of Daniele Calabi as an architect of psychiatric hospitals. It examines his theoretical and design contributions with a particular focus on the Verona-Marzana psychiatric hospital, his only design (1963) together with that for Catania, to have been partially built. The fundamental themes of Calabi’s architectural research in the psychiatric field can be seen in the Verona hospital: the choice of designs which are not central but of the village type in order to create warm environments grouped together; attention to the creation of spaces where patients can socialise; and the openness of the mental hospital to the town and its inhabitants, a precursor of the philosophy behind Law n. 180/78, which just a few years later was to radically change mental health care in Italy and in the world.
