The LIFE ELECTRIC by Daniel Libeskind

Lake Como will host a great monument designed by internationally renowned American architect Daniel Libeskind.

The contemporary artwork, entitled ‘The Life Electric,’ which Libeskind is donating to the city, is a tribute to Como native and scientist Alessandro Volta, inventor of the battery.

Weighing 11 tonnes, the colossal work will have a shiny steel structure that will reflect the ‘energy, dynamism, space and light’ of the city, said Libeskind in a recent interview with local daily Corriere di Como.

The project was made possible by the Amici di Como association.

Plans are to inaugurate the monument by May 2015.
