Walk on Water? 3km Floating Walkway in Northern Italy
Do you ever dreamed about walking on water like the hero did in Chinese kongfu movie? If you can make your trip to Lake Iseo in northern Italy within the window June 18 to July 3, 2016, you can make your dream comes to true. Called “The Floating Piers”, the 3km (almost 2 miles) floating walkway across Italy’s lake Iseo designed by artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude, is made of 200,000 high-density polyethylene cubes and is covered in 100,000 square meters of shimmering yellow fabric, which changes colors throughout the day to a shimmering gold and a reddish hue when wet. When walking on this incredible floating walkway, visors will be able to feel the movement of the water under foot. It will be very sexy, a bit like walking on a water bed. The artist also recommended visors to walk on their barefoot to have the ultimate experience. Last but not least, the whole walking experience is free – no tickets, no openings, no reservations and no owners. As long as you are in the area, just come and walk on water. However, the whole installation will only be there for three weeks.
