Golden Floating Piers Installed on Lake Iseo Offers Visitors to Walk Over Water

Well, be ready to have a thrilling experience at Lake Iseo in Italy, when from June 18 to July 3, the 81-year-old Bulgarian artist “Christo Vladimirov Javacheff” is fascinating visitors to Italy's Lake Iseo to have a chance to get unique experience of excitement and adventure of walk over water. The Floating Piers, a dream that first started in 1970, came to execution this month. The Christo and his team constructed a impermanent walkway of sparkling yellow fabric and high-density polyethylene cubes that stretches almost two miles across the lake.

For that reason, he has prudently selected location at the base of the Italian Alps lets for peoples to walk from the mainland town of Sulzano to the islands of Monte Isola and San Paolo. The precise materials and construction permits for the path to ebb and move in sync with the waves as it peaks just above the surface of the Lake, when the water and light will transform the bright yellow fabric to shades of gold and red.

Christo Vladimirov Javacheff is a famous artist for several other large-scale installations in Italy and around the globe, which have been successfully completed in alliance with his wife. Her wife Jeanne-Claude is a French artist, who has been passed in 2009. Their previous projects include “The Gates, installed in New York’s Central Park in 2005. Moreover, alike to all preceding projects, The Floating Piers is sponsored completely through sales of original works of art including the manufacturing, installation, removal and recycling of the installation's components.

Thus, the work of art is meant to be both a physical experience and a vision to be viewed from afar. The yellow proposes a remarkable contrast against the serene blues of the lake. Though, the mountains surrounding the lake will furnish a bird's-eye view of The Floating Piers, exposing unobserved angles and altering perspectives. Therefore, the water, the wind, the sun all came together for this part of the project. If you are visiting Italy, then floating walk is a must visit place to get thrilling experience. However, weather permitting, for 16 days this summer The Floating Piers will be free and accessible from 6:00AM in the morning until midnight.
