Corippo

Corippo is a town in Ticino, the Italian speaking region of Switzerland.

Life in Corippo, clinging on the mountains of Val Verzasca, is tough.

Only 16 inhabitants (counted in 2016) keep Corippo still alive.

We went through the town, up and down, looking for somebody

Are you still 16, inhabitants of Corippo?

 

 

 

Cross over to the other side

Passages allow entering the unknown, but not always they lead to somewhere else. This is the case of Sardegna sacred water wells, built by natives around 3,0000 years ago at protection of water sources. Passages can also split what is aside, like San Marco cape: on one side the always calm Mare Morto (dead sea), on the other side the waves of the open sea. Or passages may indeed lead to the other side, but just to let you enjoy the panorama in between. Click each picture to zoom in.

Off season

Surprisingly no queues at Mythenquai lido!

Quickly through the changing rooms …

… lockers locked …

The lake is just ahead!

For food and refreshments …

… showers …

… and playgrounds …

… we will come back next year.

Pictures shot at the Strandbad Myhtenquai, Zurich, off season, still open for a pleasurable morning stroll. Click to zoom in each picture.

Via Mala

In 1967 the road tunnel of San Bernardino allowed all-year round traffic between North and South of the Swiss Alps. Earlier, the Via Mala (in Latin, meaning bad path) was the only cross-way available in the area to carriages, horses and later cars. Opened by the ancient Romans, upgraded with two bridges in 1738, nowadays Via Mala is a spectacular pit stop while driving between Canton Grisons and Ticino.

South of the town of Thusis, the Via Mala gorge slightly opens.

The new pedestrian bridges to visit the depths of the gorge, the river Rhine beneath.

Click to zoom in. If you want to visit via Mala by car, arrive between 9 and 10 am to find a parking place and wait until 11am for the spectacular sun light cutting through the shades of the gorge.

Meta art

Sometimes the container outmatches the content, like at the  National Art Center of Tokyo. Designed by Kisho Kurokawa, it is one of the highest symbols of impermanence (as temporary structure) and honesty of materiality (as natural textures) in Japan.
