Il Ponte di Christo

Il Ponte di Christo or The Floating Piers was a concept created by Christo and Jeanne-Claude in 1970. In 2014 Christo found the Lake of Iseo perfect for his vision, where he shared the project with the world this summer between 18th of June and the 3rd of July. As always the project wasn't sponsored, it was paid by the artist. Christo and Jeanne-Claude have always refused sponsorships or grants. They created works of arts that inspire beauty and happiness, which they keep free to the public with no visitation fee. 

It's truly magnificent what Christo managed to do. While walking on the piers you get the sensation of walking on water, especially when you walk barefoot (with socks). It's quite a unique feeling of the waves, similar to being on a boat but way more intense as you're closer to the water, yet softer because you don't have the weight and structure of a boat. 

The view is breathtaking, especially when you find yourself in the middle of the lake, but also looking at it from a higher point on the island. At the beginning it was a bit cooler, which was perfect but as the day progressed it got hot as hell, however it was a marvellous and fun experience.

Have you heard about the project? What do you think?

Happy 4th of July!

Have a pink-tastic day!
Kisses.
