Towering 11 meters above the pond colossusis the epitome of the Apennine mountain ranges. The Colossus sits on a stifled beast, from whose mouth the fountain beats. They say that in the head of the beast was a fireplace, and when the fire was raised there was smoke from the nostrils of the beast. The colossus is also difficult: there are 7 grottoes inside, their walls were strewn with shells, corals, pearls and crystals, and painted with frescoes depicting muscular men extracting precious ores. Unfortunately, the decoration of the grottoes was not preserved. In the head of the giant was a room for a small but orchestra.
