Appeninno, the mountain man, was built in the late 1500s by renowned Italian sculptor Giambologna as a symbol of Italy’s rugged Apennine mountains. Standing over the ground of the Villa di Pratolino in Tuscany, the mountain man measures 35 feet tall.
But this mountain-man Appeninno is not just a sculpture, it is a whole building. The sculpture has several rooms and each room has a different use. His left-hand pour-out water from an underground stream and the space in his head is a fireplace which, when lit, blow smoke out of his nostrils. Take a look inside the interiors of this mountain man.
