Grotta gigante, Sgonico - Friuli Venezia Giulia

The Giant Cave

Grotta Gigante ("Giant Cave"), also known as Riesengrotte or as Grotta di Brisciachi, is a giant cave on the Italian side of the Trieste Karst (Carso), close to the village of Borgo Grotta Gigante in the municipality of Sgonico. Its central cavern is 107 m (351 ft) high, 65 m (213 ft) wide and 130 m (430 ft) long, putting it in the 1995 Guinness Book of Records as the world's largest tourist cave. This record was broken in 2010 when La Verna cave (length 255 meters, width 225 meters, height 195 meters) in the south west of France was opened to tourists

The cave contains many large stalactites and stalagmites, many of exceptional beauty. A feature of the stalagmites is their "dish-pile" appearance, formed by water dropping from up to 80 m (260 ft) above and depositing calcium carbonate over a wide area.

The enormous hall is 107 m (351 ft) high, 130 m (430 ft) long and 65 m (213 ft) large. A steep path with atmospheric electric lighting allows the visitor to spend about 45 minutes in this underground space, with its rich calcite concretions, the highest of which is no less than 12 m (39 ft) high.

Its available space and the constant temperatures throughout the year have led to the placement of two geodetic pendula (which hang down from about 100 m (330 ft), and are the longest in the world) and other scientific instruments.

Rocchetta Mattei, Grizzana Morandi - Emilia Romagna

Rocchetta Mattei is a fantastic architectural masterpiece in Emilia, at Grizzana Morandi, near Bologna! A stone marvel commissioned by Count Cesare Mattei in 19th century, with a style that included a mix of everything: Norman, Etruscan, Arabian, Turkish and even Asian!
The Earl Mattei used to live a proper medieval castellan life in the citadel with a real court and a jester; the castle hosted also many illustrious persons and was known by eminent personalities such as the russian writer Dostoevsky, that mentioned the earl in a novel, talking about his skills in “electro-homeopathy”, a practice ideated by Mattei itself. During his life the earl has changed the structure several times, making it a labyrinthine twist of many rooms towers and stairs. But in 1959 the Rocchetta was bought by Primo Stefanelli who turned part of the minor buildings in a cozy hotel with an access to the close park, a real oasis of peace. He wanted to make the place a real touristic destination, but after his death the situation deteriorated until the Rocchetta was closed.
In 2006 the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio in Bologna has officially announced the acquisition of the Rocchetta Mattei, undergoing restoration work completed with the reopening to the public on Aug. 9, 2015
