Sand Sculptures Festival 2013 at Jesolo Lido
From 15 June 2013 to 31 July 2013
The impressive Jesolo sand sculptures in summer 2013 will be on show from 15 June to 31 July 2013 and will have the Italian Renaissance as their theme, undertaken by the imagination of ten artists who will arrive in Jesolo for the sand sculpture event from all over the world.
Since 1998, the Sand Sculptures Festival has become a classic summer Jesolo event. Now in its 16th edition, the festival in Jesolo reinvents itself every year with a different theme, leaving the artists great freedom of expression: Hollywood, Africa, the Far West, Pinocchio and Venice are among the topics that have been best appreciated for the Sand Sculture exhibition.
Again this year the sand sculpture competition will be taking place. Visitors can express their preference and, at the end of the Sand Festival in Jesolo, the sculpture with the most votes will be crowned the winner of the Jesolo International Sand Sculpture Festival 2013.
As usual, the Sand Festival in Jesolo, Italy will be held in the large marquee in the strand of Brescia Square, a short distance from the vibrant Mazzini Square in Jesolo, Italy. The Jesolo Sand Festival will offer and exhibition of 2500 sq metres where sand sculpture artists will unleash their creativity and create masterpieces of sand.
The Lido di jesolo Sand Sculptures will show the works of Leonardo and Michelangelo, along with other famous artistic subjects of the Italian Renaissance. The Jesolo Sand Sculptures Festival in 2013 will show visitors some of the most fascinating and significant sand sculptures in the history of art, its discovery and the most important works.
The construction of the International Festival of Sand Sculptures in Lido di Jesolo will be completed by the scenic design by Damon Farmer, with landscapes by Leonardo and perspective effects throughout the course of the exhibition.
The Jesolo, Italy Sand Sculptures will be undertaken from 31 May to 10 June under the artistic direction of Richard Varano - and the Sand Sculptures in Jesolo will then be open to the public from June 15, every day from 9.00 am to 11.00 pm.
