Colli di San Fermo “Big Bench” is a yellow and white giant bench, colors reminiscent of daffodils symbol of Colli di San Fermo.
The bench is positioned near the “belvedere” platform in the Colli di San Fermo, a hamlet of Grone, on an instantly visible mound, in a strategic point between Val Cavallina and Lake Iseo that offers a breathtaking view of the plain.
La panchina è posizionata vicino alla piattaforma “belvedere”ai Colli di San Fermo, frazione di Grone, su una montagnetta visibile istantaneamente, in un punto strategico tra la Val Cavallina e il lago d’Iseo che offre una veduta mozzafiato sulla pianura.
The activities of the BBCP – of an exclusive non-profit nature – include both technical support to those who want to build a new official Big Bench, and collaboration with the excellence of local craftsmanship to create products inspired by them, which can make a small contribution to the local economy and tourism, in the sign of the positive spirit that the Big Benches bring to this area. Part of the proceeds of each sale, will be devolved by the BIG BENCH COMMUNITY PROJECT to the towns involved and will be destined to support the local community.
“We hope to see more Large Benches built to make us feel like children again when we climb on them, and that new visitors will come to this area to enjoy the spectacular view” – Chris Bangle
