A three-kilometer-long floating walkway made up of 220,000 high-density polyethylene cubes connect two small islands to the shore on Lake Iseo, on Italy’s Lombardy region, some 100 km east of Milan. The project which is being overseen by 80 year-old Bulgarian-born artist Christo Vladimirov Yavachev, has been going on since last November and is on its final leg. Although it appears bright white now, the 100,000 square meter walkway will be covered by a shimmering yellow fabric when it opens for visitors on June 18. The walkway will remain open for only 16 days, until July 3, during which half-a-million visitors are expected to walk on it. The experience will be like, as the artist describes, “walking on the back of a whale”.
