About his story...
Gigante Baranci
I'm the Gigante Baranci and I'm strong as a bear! That's why i helped the inhabitants of San Candido to build their cathedral. In exchange the people from the town gave me a barrel of wine, a grilled veal and a bag of potatoes every day. I love nothing more than when children visit. On the path through my realm, the Dwarf Village and it's footprints lakes and the summer toboggan run kids can experience a lot.
