In this period it is possible to admire the latest, incredible work “The Floating Piers” by one of the most important exponents of Land Art: Christo and Jeanne-Claude, or as they are more simply known, Christo, the shared artistic project by the United States couple Christo Vladimirov Yavachev (Gabrovo, 13th June 1935) and Jeanne-Claude Denat de Guillebon (Casablanca 13th June 1935 - New York, 18th November 2009), among the most important creators of large-scale works, or rather “Land Art”.

Among the various equipment used in preparatory operations was a small motorised catamaran fitted with a Fassi F38A.0.22 crane.

Three kilometres of floating walkway linking the town of Sulzano, Monte Isola and the island of San Paolo.
