THE PARK OF THE GIANT IN LUZZANA

Description

A fairy tale world built around the visionary work of a young student from the Accademia Carrara. Giosué Meli, in 1840, captivated by the beauty of Via Costa in Luzzana, carved a huge and evocative figure down the staircase. A figure inspired by Michelangelo’s gigantism and Gianbologna’s bella maniera.

All around, you will find steep slopes, rushing streams and delightful ponds with small clear waterfalls that make up The Park of the Giant.

Walk through the dense maze of walkways and paths that wind around the Bragazzo river from where you can enjoy unspoiled views and admire untouched landscapes.

But there is a mystery surrounding Meli’s sculpture. Does it represent the giant who holds up the mountain or a deposed Christ? Visit the Park and try to answer this question for yourself.
