Retired Italian art magazine publisher Franco Maria Ricci has created the world's largest maze in the small northern Italian town of Fontanellato, near Parma. The labyrinth design of bamboo hedges is based on mazes depicted in two Roman mosaics. The maze covers seven hectares (17.5 acres), making it more than five times larger than the Dole Plantation's Pineapple Garden Maze in Hawaii (the Guinness Book of World Records title-holder of largest permanent hedge maze since 2008). The Fontanellato maze will open to the public in 2012, and Ricci suggests that visitors bring mobile phones in case they need help finding their way.
