Now You Can Walk On Water!

Ever fancied walking on water? Well now you can, thanks to Bulgarian, born artist Christo's latest art installation, a floating walkway across Italy's Lake Iseo. 

For just a few weeks, 'The Floating Piers' will rest on the surface of the picturesque lake, 62 miles northeast of Milan, with a 2 mile walkway allowing visitors to set off from the mainland town of Sulzano to the islands of Monte Isola and San Paolo, usually only accessible by boat. Some 220,000 high-density polyethylene cubes have been attached together and anchored by divers for the project. Covering them are 1,076,391sqft of shimmering yellow fabric, which will also feature along 1 mile of Sulzano streets. The piers, some 52 feet wide and 14 inches high, will 'undulate with the movement of the waves' as visitors make their way, according to the project's website. 

According to the project's website, Christo and Jeanne-Claude came up with 'The Floating Piers' concept in 1970 and Christo picked Lake Iseo as the location in 2014.
