The Floating Piers

The Floating Piers.

Christo installation at Lago d'Iseo for 16 days only.
About 120 km northeast of Milan, the installation was 3 km of shimmering beautiful cloth, on 300,000 floating plastic cubes.
Walking on water!

Maybe the color of the stucco wall is where Christo found inspiration for the color of the cloth.

These photos are chosen for beauty and do not really convey the experience of what it was like to be in a crowd of 200,000 people.  In 90 degree heat/35 Celsius.

At the end of the day a boat went by.  When we looked carefully, we could see Christo on the top deck pointing to his creation!
