The ArtistsThe wrapping of the Reichstag in Berlin, of the Pont Neuf in Paris, and the Valley Curtain in the Rocky Mountains are just a few of the many projects that have brought the artist Christo to public notice worldwide.

The artist is currently working on a further large-scale “Art in Nature” project. At the Lake D’Iseo in Italy, from June 13 to July 3, 2016, the plan is to build a walk-along pier three kilometres in length, consisting, among other elements, of 70,000 square meters of a technical needle punched nonwoven.
