Colosso dell'Appennino by Giambologna // sculpture // Florence // Italy // Europe // renaissance art // statue on a lake // old world art // travel destinations // dream vacations // places to go
Situated at the Villa di Pratolino in Vaglia, Tuscany, Italy. Statue of "Appennino" (1579-1580), a colossal sculpture by Giambologna, which originally seemed to emerge from the vaulted rockwork niche that once surrounded him. Multiple grottoes with water-driven automata, a water organ, surprise jets that drenched visitors' finery when the fontanieri opened secret spigots, offered striking juxtapositions of Art with imitations of rugged Nature
Shrouded within the park of Villa Demidoff (just north of Florence, Italy), there sits a gigantic 16th century sculpture known as Colosso dellAppennino, 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. At one point, the colossal figure stood amidst a number of other bronze statues, many of which have now been lost
