Artesina's giant pink rabbit
Created by a group of artists, i Gelitin, Colletto Fava's giant pink rabbit was knitted and left lying on a Piedmontese hill. Making it wasn't easy: it took a lot of artists and a lot of helpers to bring this creature to life. Five years of knitting for the creation of the pink rabbit, which, according to the creators' estimates, should be left alone to rest on the hillside for at least 20 years, until 2025.
We cannot overlook the fact that due to rain and snow the big "animal" is deteriorating more and more over time. However, this data does not worry the artists, who reply: the natural process of decomposition is part of the original idea of creation.

The more daring are convinced that the rabbit is so large that it can be seen from space, using satellite photos. But to see this extravagant work with your own eyes, unless you want to travel into space to check for yourself whether it is visible or not, we recommend that you go to Artesina. Artesina, a small town in Piedmont, is located at the top of Mount Colleto Fava, in the Alps, a well-known mountain range in northern Italy.
Today the Gothic work of art is in a state of advanced deterioration. You can glimpse the ruins on google maps by entering the coordinates 44 14'39.77 "N 7 ° 46'10.71" E.
