Massive 16th Century ‘Colossus’ Sculpture In Italy Has Entire Rooms Hidden Inside

The Open Mind | October 9, 2015 | Life | No Comments

Shrouded within the park of Villa Demidoff (just north of Florence, Italy), there sits a gigantic 35-foot-tall 16th century sculpture known as Colosso dell’Appennino, or the Appennine Colossus. The brooding structure was first erected in 1580 by Italian sculptor Giambologna. Like a guardian of the pond in front of him, the giant is in an endless watchful pose, perched atop his earthy seat.
The rugged, mountainous statue hides a wonderful secret – his interior hides several rooms with different functions that made this colossus come to life. The monster that his left hand holds spewed water from an underground stream, and it is rumored that space in his head was made for a fireplace which, when lit, would blow smoke out of his nostrils.
The park in which the colossus currently stands, Villa Demidoff, will be open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10AM until 7PM until the end of October.
