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.
