Colosso dell'Appennino is a monumental sculpture just 2 km from the center of Vaglia, Italy. Located in the Appennine Mountains, it stands 44 meters tall and is the largest statue in Italy. Since its completion in 1958, the Colosso has become a popular tourist attraction. The centerpiece of the Colosso is a bronze sculpture of an oxen-drawn cart. This pays homage to the past history of the region, which was known as the Oxen Pass, due to its famous oxen-pulled carts that carried goods through the hills. Other elements of the Colosso include a sundial and fountains featuring giant animal statues. Visitors to the Colosso can choose to explore the statue via the winding stairs to the top, or opt for a peaceful stroll through the vibrant gardens. Vaglia itself is a small rural town that is perfect for a few days of exploring and savoring true Italian life. Its spectacular natural landscapes, traditional food and famous Italian hospitality make it a great place to visit.
