12th edition

17th - 18th June 2017



Welcome in the Italian BodyPainting 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.


IMPORTANT NEWS: The Italian BodyPainting Festival 2017 will take place in GARDA, Lake Garda, on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th June. The event will be hosted in the Lungolago Regina Adelaide, 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.
