Ah! to soar through the winds,
to have wings.
Built from concrete in 1910, the 14 meter high image of Neptune was once a symbol of the town of Monterosso al Mare on the Italian Riviera. After losing not only its trident and the seashell that it once held up high, but even its arms to allied bombing and the rough sea over the years, the Giant now stands defeated, perhaps waiting for a miracle.
