After 46 Years Planning, Christo and Jeanne-Claude Realize "The Floating Piers", Opening Today In Italy



This is so dope all I keep thinking about is how I'm not in Northern Italy at the moment and can't over in time.

Visitors can experience this work of art by walking on it from Sulzano to Monte Isola and to the island of San Paolo, which is framed by The Floating Piers. The mountains surrounding the lake offer a bird’s-eye view of The Floating Piers, exposing unnoticed angles and altering perspectives. Lake Iseo is located 100 kilometers east of Milan and 200 kilometers west of Venice. 

“Like all of our projects, The Floating Piers is absolutely free and accessible 24 hours a day, weather permitting,” said Christo. “There are no tickets, no openings, no reservations and no owners. The Floating Piers are an extension of the street and belong to everyone.” 

A 3-kilometer-long walkway was created as The Floating Piers extend across the water of Lake Iseo. The piers are 16 meters wide and approximately 35 centimeters high with sloping sides. The fabric continues along 2.5 kilometers of pedestrian streets in Sulzano and Peschiera Maraglio. “Those who experience The Floating Piers will feel like they are walking on water – or perhaps the back of a whale,” said Christo. “The light and water will transform the bright yellow fabric to shades of red and gold throughout the sixteen days.”

Financial Times Interview w/ Gosha Rubchinskiy

The guy's pieces and energy around the product is very interesting to me.

“I didn’t want to show again in Paris,” he says. “I wanted to move to a different city, do something different.” He considered Milan, then Pitti extended an invitation. “I had never been to Italy,” he says. “I wanted to go to Florence for the Uffizi gallery. I wanted to see Leonardo and my favourite Botticelli.” One of his inspirations for this new collection is the director and poet Pier Paolo Pasolini. “Now is the right moment to think about what is Europe,” says Rubchinskiy. “Pasolini was anti-globalist and thought it was good to keep the spirit of Italy in Italy, of France in France, of Russia in Russia. I think it’s the right moment to remember Pasolini, and to think about what is Europe.”

Business Of Fashion Scores Talk With Supreme's James Jebbia

Always good to hear this man say words. Article not as deep as you may want but interesting nonetheless.

His approach to staffing new stores is no different. “The people I work with is what gives the store its personality,” he said. “They treat it like it’s their own.” For the shop in London, Jebbia picked 1980s skate legend Dan Jagger to be its store manager. A similar approach guided his decision to ask Samir Krim, a founder of the French skateboard company Minutia, to manage the new Paris boutique. “He’s a big part of the skate scene there,” said Jebbia. “If we didn’t have someone like Samir, we wouldn’t have opened a shop in Paris.”
