German tourists, allegedly including influencer Janis Danner, rented out a villa in Lombardy, Italy, and knocked over a 19th-century fountain statue worth $200,000, said Euronews.

“The boys did not respect the ban on entering the fountain and were filmed by video surveillance cameras while two of them embraced the statue, dropping it and destroying it, while four of their comrades shot videos with their cell phones,” said Bruno Golferini, the villa’s manager.

The article reported that the incident was the latest act of tourist transgressions after the Roman Colosseum was defaced. Earlier in 2023, a Polish tourist climbed a Mayan temple, which is against the rules at Chichen Itza, Mexico.
