Where? Livigno Resort, Sondrio, Italy
When? 3rd - 7th December
Livigno hosts the annual international Art in Ice competition, where ten teams of three sculptors compete to transform three-meter blocks of pressed snow into works of art Italian Ice. Artists the world over head to the festival to make the mono-color artworks. The event strives for purity and simplicity, with strict rules on the dimensions of the three square meter snow blocks and banning of chainsaws, other electrical cutting tools and all means of coloring the snow. Weather permitting, the sculptures stay on display until March.
