11th edition

4th - 5th Juny 2016



Welcome in the italian Body-Painting Festival website!

It's all about the most coloured event on the Lake Garda, as well as the only international event about body-painting in Italy, where a lot of artists challenge friendly, using all their technical abilities: from brush painting to airbrush, including special effects. The audience, who's getting wider and wider every year, shows a great feeling with the painters, who are able to turn their models into a work of art in couple of hours.


The Body-Painting Festival 2016 will take place in Bardolino, Lake Garda, on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th Juny. The event will be hosted in the Villa "Carrara Bottagisio" Park, with a view on the beatiful lake promenade.

The crowd of turists, as much as the fans of this kind of art, will be able to attend the festival.
