Press Lounge, an Office Without Walls
The journalists have a hard life. It's not easy to gain information from a person, to find original news to offer to the readers. But the life of the correspondents can be even harder. Special screenings, press conferences, the necessity to be punctual,... And no desks to work on.
But this year the journalists who follow the Festival del film Locarno can take a seat (or a sofa cushion...) in a new place in the front of the Locarno Kursaal Theatre expressely dedicated to them: the Press Lounge.
The name already represents a declaration of intent: the wide gazebo is open only to the media professionals, but it also gives them the opportunity to chill out drinking a glass of water or ice tea, eating some fresh fruits or simply have a rest on the comfortable sofas.
An office without walls but... trees (remember Gino Paoli's old song?) which demonstrates all the class and quality that comes from the experience of Parmigiani Fleurier, the Swiss brand of luxury watchmakers founded in 1976.
The Official Watch Partner of the Festival organized and built the Press Lounge showing professionalism not only in time management, but also in space management. And the journalists say thank you.Mattia Bertoldi
