A child enjoys the view from the back of a giant (photo below). The Colosso di San Carlone from 1698, a huge copper statue of a canonized member of the powerful Borromeo family, overlooks the slopes along the Lago Maggiore near Arona in Italy, and blesses the landscape. As an ordinary mortal you can view the world through his holy eyes if you climb the narrow stairs leading up into his head (photo above). Photos by Paul Smit.
