The Colossus of the Apennines... sent on December 29, 2018 (8:52) by Ronda. 28 comments, 479 views.

at 10mm, 1/60 f/16.0, ISO 100, tripod.

Pratolino, Firenze ... ottobre 2018 ... Si narra che il celebre artista fiammingo Jean de Boulogne, detto il Giambologna, particolarmente attivo presso la corte fiorentina ed autore, tra il 1579 ed il 1580, di questa imponente e spettacolare struttura raffigurante un essere mitologico metà uomo e metà montagna, abbia esclamato al termine della sua fatica : "Ho fatto l'Appennino ma mi pento di averlo fatto a Pratolino ..." ... E' vero infatti che se il Colosso, gigantesco manufatto in muratura rivestita di intonaco e pietra, fosse stato eretto in una qualsivoglia piazza fiorentina anzichè nel parco della pur sfarzosa residenza medicea di Pratolino, sarebbe ben presto divenuto un'attrazione planetaria! ...

Congratulations a beautiful accomplishment. Excellent composition that enhances the first floor but that visually brings to the vision of the Colossus, immersed in vegetation. also excellent colors.

Giambologna was right, because the gardens and their furnishings were and are of great interest to the enthusiasts, who are however many. The photo I really like: the first floor with the low pdr on the Lotus Leaf seems to offer the statue above. The sky closes the view with the beautiful backdrop of clouds. Congratulations for the photo and the research, Simone and with them a greeting and a wish of good end of year, GA
