Location: Monte Isola      by: Giuseppe Marzulli
Area: Italy      Date: 20 June 2016
Yesterday I managed to go only for an hour and a half on the walkway of Christo.
It has been an exhausting experience, with nearly two-hour queue, but truly exceptional. If I can, I will return.

The main problem is being able to get to the walkway. Sulzano, the town from which begins the walkway, you can only reach by train or by bus-shuttle. Then you have to queue to get to the walkway. The queue length is variable, but in some cases, can be up to 4-5 hours.
Once it has reached the walkway, however, it is a great satisfaction. The walkway sways a little and is very pleasant to walk on. There are always people on the walkway, but it is not too crowded.
Walk on it is a really special feeling.
I have indicated the exact location of the shots in the pano 19903.

If anyone would like to try to get there, you must be noted that you can only until July 3. I do not think that this date will be extended, because the walkway requires many people to ensure safety.

Great pano, that was for sure not an easy work!

Grande! 
Ho seguito le tue panoramiche dell'evolversi dell'installazione di Christo. Domenica la tv ha trasmesso alcuni servizi sull'inaugurazione, e devo dire che la sensazione deve essere entusiasmante. "Camminare sull'acqua" non è propriamente un'esperienza nuova per un veneziano ma credo che comunque in questo caso ci sia un particolare valore aggiunto. Chissà se tra le ragioni dell'opera c'è anche il nome dell'autore...
Ho sentito dire che l'installazione durerà esattamente 384 ore - quindi 16 giorni.
Ciao, Alvise

I am glad that you have found time and share this very special walk with us. It must be an uplifting moment. Thank you!!!

... ma a sentire le cronache delle ultime ore... 
... sembra che l'evento abbia scatenato una specie di psicosi collettiva - forse c'era da aspettarselo, visto che siamo in Italia!!!

Ciao Alvise. THe inflow has exceeded expectations and are beginning to show some organizational problems.
Unfortunately, the Lake Iseo and Sulzano have problems to receive a million visitors in 15 days. I hope there are not too many inconveniences for visitors.

A great documentation you will like to remember after some years.

Da nutzt jemand den Heimvorteil schamlos aus. Großartige Szene.

After watching a report on this project by Christo and Jeanne-Claude in the news, I have expected a panorama of the walkway more than eagerly. I am glad that you have met my expectation. Great!
Kindly regards, Matthias.

Toll!
VG, Danko.

Normally we try to avoid or mask people - in this case they are an essential part of the documentation. Cheers, Martin

Hello Martin. As often happens, I agree with you.
2016/06/28 20:57, Giuseppe Marzulli
Gewaltig! 
Danke nochmals für die Gelegenheit dieses Kunstwerk von der Nähe zu betrachten.
