    It is a forest in the shape of Italy. I have heard about it for years. I think it was planted during the fascist days by Mussollini's orders. Even my Italian friends have never heard of it.

  2. Only information I can find online is that it is in a region named Umbria.

    If you google umbria "shaped forest" you wil lget a couple of hits - I'm at work so I can't see the results unfortunately.

    There are a few posts on Flickr who say it's Umbria, indeed.
