A temporary installation floated atop Lake Iseo in Italy for 16 days during the month of June, accessible to the public and free of charge. Christo, and his late partner Jeanne-Claude, originated the concept in 1970. After changing the intended location of the piece multiple times, this particular Italian lake was chosen in 2014. Floating Piers, as the work was called, was a continuous strand that traced both the water and the adjacent city streets.
