Dreamt up entirely in Ticino, the Swing the World project is the brainchild of two young photography and filmmaking enthusiasts keen to introduce the world to the most stunning, breath-taking and Instagrammable corners of Ticino through hand-built swings scattered around the region. All this with an added focus on the environment.
A walk in the woods, a hike up the mountains or a dip in the lake...suddenly there it is, a swing against the backdrop of an incredible view. The Swing the World swings have a very special charm, not least because they’ve been set up in locations aimed at bringing people to the most beautiful spots in the canton, but also because they’re completely handmade by these two local young people using local materials.
Once the swing is ready, it needs a site. With a focus on the theme of sustainability, these two young people from Ticino choose places that boast breath-taking views, where the swings can frame photos and happy memories and can also be reached on foot or by bike to avoid traffic and encourage people of all ages to enjoy a moment in nature.
Want to try the Swing the World swings for yourself? Take the time to discover all the swings set up across our region, from the waters of the lake (literally!) to a mountain top. Sit back, swing, breathe in the pure air and allow yourself to be carried away by the emotions of the view.
