Denise Karbon

PC:DeniseSmallUseWe discovered a unique landmark in South Tyrol, Italy, (in the north, where both German and Italian are spoken)–this memorial fountain comprised of a massive log, hunk of rock with a spigot, and a bronze representation of Denise Karbon, a World Cup alpine ski racer. Her head with a big smile & a ski hat is at the top of the plaque. The inscription is in both languages: German– “Our Denise Karbon winner of the World cup giant ski slalom in ’07-’08. This fountain in memory and recognition.”  Italian– “Denise Karbon, winner of the World Cup giant slalom 07-08. In her honor, this fountain.”  Very cool contemporary landmark to an female athlete. A very large dog enjoyed a drink while we were sitting nearby.
