    About The Work

    In February and March 1974, for a period of 40 days, an 820-foot long section of the Aurelian Walls was wrapped in polypropylene and rope, covering both sides, the top, and the arches of the wall. Forty construction workers completed the temporary work of art in four days.

    Christo Vladimirov Javachev (Christo) and his wife Jeanne-Claude are famous for making impressive and often controversial art installations. Their works include the wrapping of the Reichstag in Berlin, the Pont Neuf in Paris, a Roman wall, and more recently an installation on a lake in Italy.
