Locarno Festival

 

Locarno Festival transforms for the 71st time Locarno for one week long into the Swiss capital of cinema. With crowds from all across the globe enjoying the Festival, an intoxicating atmosphere is guaranteed throughout cinemas, squares, bars, laRotonda and other special festival venues from morning until late at night, such as the new Locarno Garden la Mobiliare.

The new artistic installation at the entrance of Piazza Grande is worth a visit. UBS donated to Locarno Festival and the City of Locarno something to celebrate the 70th edition of the Festival: a set of various letters of different dimensions, located at different heights and distances, that compose the writing “Locarno” when seen from a precise position.

Don’t miss the opportunity to relax and have fun between the screenings: the entire Ascona-Locarno region with its lake, the rivers, botanical gardens, valleys and mountains will offer you unforgettable moments.
