THE CHRIST OF THE ABYSS: The stunning statue immersed in the waters of San Fruttuoso

Immersed in the marvellous backdrop of San Fruttuoso Bay, the Christ of the Abyss, a beautiful bronze statue representing a man with his arms stretched upwards, turns 67 years old.

The history of this incredible artwork is very touching. Infact, the great Genoese diver Duilio Marcante wanted this statue in honour of his friend, who died during a dive in 1947 in the place where it lies the Christ.

The material of the statue has a very original composition, infact it is formed by a fusion of naval elements such as propellers, medals and other objects provided for the project.

Today the statue has become a must-see destination for divers who want to admire the beauty of this historic and enchanting masterpiece.

If you are a sea lover, you cannot miss this wonderful place and admire the beauty and uniqueness of this statute immersed in the abyss.
