T+L Reports: Piedmont's Giant Rabbit
Published: April 2009

Lately, hikers in Italy's northern Piedmont have found themselves hopping down the bunny
trail—literally. On the slopes of Colletto Fava mountain lies a 164-foot-long, hay-stuffed
rabbit made of Pepto-Bismolpink wool. The Austrian art group Gelitin (www.gelitin.net) plans to keep this installation in place until 2025, mildew and rot be damned. The bunny's
14-foot-high sides can be scaled by walkers seeking a plush belly on which to nap—if
they can handle the stench of several thousand pounds of rain-soaked wool.
