In the summer of 2016, Lake Iseo had the pleasure of hosting a unique and magical work of art by the Bulgarian artist Christo: “The Floating Piers”. Franciacorta’s wineries and accommodation facilities welcomed curiosity seekers and tourists fascinated by the idea of treading on the 3-km long walkway for an area of about 70,000 square metres.
Collaborating closely with the Municipality of Sulzano, Franciacorta played a leading role for the event’s entire run with the exclusive Wine Bar hosted on the Sulzano lakefront in the same structure created for the Expo Milano event in 2015. The Franciacorta Wine Bar was the first pavilion from Expo Milano 2015 to be reassembled in another area and this underscores its sustainable nature.
For “The Floating Piers” as well, the general public was able to taste various types of Franciacorta paired with refined local dishes and the delicious black pearls of Calvisius Caviar, once more managed by Lanzani Bottega & Bistrot.
