Rock man

I recently went to the village of Stazzema. I was really looking for Sant’Anna di Stazzema, but went the wrong way and and arrived in the wrong village.

On the way I stopped to take photos of this amazing mountain. It is the same one we see from Vergemoli, but from the other side.

Apuan Alps

I think the rock on the left looks like the profile of a man.

      • Therefore, maybe Easter Island was settled by Italians …. or maybe the Easter Island civilization moved to Italy.
