Ghost sculptures in the castle of Vezio, Italy (12 photos)

    Castle of Vezio

    Castello di Vezio is a castle located nearby Varenna and Perledo, northern Italy.

    Intriguing are the quirky plaster ‘ghosts’ in the castle grounds. Made from white chalk they are re-made each summer by tourists who agree to be put in a particular position, then covered with gauze and white chalk staying like that for 20 mins until the chalk is dry. The sculptures remain until destroyed by snow.
