If you have been to Como, Italy you couldn’t have missed the steel sculpture, a gift to the city of Como designed by Daniel Libeskind. The contemporary sculpture called “The Life Electric” dedicated to Alessandro Volta is located at the very end of the Diga Foranea pier. Day or night this is a lovely spot to sit and look out over Como, the funicular up to Brunate and the surrounding waterfront. The sculpture was designed to connect three of the five natural elements: light, wind and water highlighting the connection between the sky, the lake and the mountains which of course, typify Lake Como’s surrounding landscape.
