Location: Sulzano (Marilago)      by: Giuseppe Marzulli
Area: Italy      Date: 15 May 2016

The protagonist of this story is Christo.
Christo is a Bulgarian-born artist and is considered the most important representative of land art. He made many important (and discussed) works, including the wrapping of the Reichstag in Berlin.
His idea of walking on water is 40 years old, but until now no one had given the necessary permissions.
He had presented a similar project for walking on the Rio de la Plata and Tokyo Bay. But he never had the permits.
Now he had permission from the Municipality of Iseo and, only for 16 days, from June 18 to July 3 you can walk on the water of Lake Iseo and walk from Sulzano to Monte Isola, the largest lake island of Western Europe.


This is the next pano I wanted to present and I wanted to ask you to keep an eye on the progress of this magnificent project by the master of landscape art. We have been puzzled when we saw it ten days ago for the first time. I could not believe it that we literally stumbled across this project.
Herzlichst Christoph

Dear Christoph, I also think it is an extraordinary art project.

I quickly found the art project's website. Interesting proposal. Would be really great to see a comparison panorama once the installation is finished. But please also leave this one - the lake alone is beautiful. Cheers, Martin

Great scenery and in my opinion the colours are more natural than at your other panos last time. I like it!

Dear Giuseppe, what is the strange dark line on the water surface?
2016/05/15 23:48 , Mentor Depret
Hello Mentor. I do not see specific dark lines. Lake Iseo is deep and has many currents of water.
2016/05/16 00:01 , Giuseppe Marzulli
You don't see the long dark waves, Giuseppe? Looks like the stern wash of a boat, and I think the related boat is approaching "future docking" #5.

Hello Arno. Can you indicate with a label that dark line?
2016/05/16 00:35 , Giuseppe Marzulli
Sorry Giuseppe, I'm "on the road" until this evening, and I can't set labels with my telefonino. I'm amazed because it's evident. Perhaps someone other can do it, for ex. Mentor? KR Arno

The boat responsible for the trail line can be seen close to the island
2016/05/16 11:16 , Christoph Seger
Motif, clouds and colors I like very much.
2016/05/16 14:35 , Friedemann Dittrich
Mentor and Arno: are all trails of boats.
2016/05/16 21:04 , Giuseppe Marzulli
So many remarkable lake portraits you make. I envy you! KR Jan.
