SMUGGLER’S TREK

 

From to

Trekking del Contrabbandiere (Smuggler’s Trekking): An initiative of Insubrica Historica and Antenna Ticinese dei Verbanisti aimed at enhancing a trail near the Locarno (Brissago) border, which was used during the 1940-1950s for smuggling goods, but also by partisans and civilian and Jewish refugees fleeing to Switzerland. A total of six 3-hour hikes are proposed for 2022, in the months of July to October 2022. This trekking stems from the desire to allow interested people to relive an important historical moment, not even that remote. It is a path that leads to reflection and shows how the war situation of the Second World War largely touched the region of Locarno.
