This unmissable international competition started in 1998 and takes place in Jesolo every summer. Internationally renowned artists from all over the world compete against one another to create the best sand sculptures. Every year has a topical theme. Ingredients: a block of sand weighing around one tonne, water and plenty of support from the audience. The artists create some real masterpieces, albeit temporary ones, which are put on show in Piazza Brescia just a short step from the sea, in the nerve centre of the city.
The event is ongoing throughout the summer, so you can watch all the phases of the creation process, right through to the finished pieces. This festival is all about the imagination and putting it into practice with sand. The public can vote for their favourite sculpture and pick the most talented artist.
