Ascona Locarno, Destination sponsor

Aldo Merlini, President of the Tourist Organisation Lago Maggiore e Valli.


Our Organisation wishes all the best and great success to the 69th edition of the Festival del film Locarno, which transforms our town into a true “Center of Cinematographic Art”. Since last year the Tourist Organisation Lago Maggiore e Valli acts as one of the main sponsors, more precisely as Destination Sponsor.

During the 11 days of the festival, Locarno becomes the world Capital of auteur films and its features are shaped by cinematic, artistic and literary passions. The luminous images of the film world carry the voice of our destination far beyond its borders. The “seventh art” portrays itself in all its different facets, however keeping its center in community life and therefore becoming a part of it. It is a matter of fact that this event is also very popular among the local population.
