Internationally renowned artist Christo conceived “The Floating Piers" with his late wife and collaborator, Jeanne-Claude in 1970. In 2016, permission was finally cleared to mount the work on Italy's Lake Iseo, at the foot of the Alps. Securing a location was only the first in a series of problem solving, creatively, and prickly negotiations. An illuminating portrait of a master artist and the arduous journey of bringing an large-scale art production. In July 2018, Floating Piers attracted over 1.2 million visitors.
