Christo opens the gates of Floating Piers

The waiting line to get the thrill  on how it feels to  “walk on water” is about one hour. Yesterday at 7:40 am the gates were finally open. I was one of the lucky to be among the first to step on the “Floating Piers” the new Christo’s installation on the Iseo Lake in the Nord Italy region of Lombardy . The three chilometers (1.9 miles) strut over the orange piers attracted thousands of people who walken, took selfies, tried the barefoot sensation suggested by Christo himself.

The sensation is to walk over a well inflated “water bed” that moves with the small lake’s waves. The structure is wide enough to allow center walking without the danger of falling into the lake, given the fact that there are not protections on the side.

An army of 600 helpers dressed in blue and orange from around the world provided the security of the piers while distributing pieces of the fabric as a souvenir. It will remain open to the public and absolutely free until July 3rd . Lake iseo is located at 200 chilometers from Venice and 100 chilometers from Milano    OK
