Tell me the old stories

Tell me the old stories

of cracking winters and wet springs,

when our arms were nests of life,

our shadows were roofs to flocks,

our colors were green and red and yellow.

Tell me the old stories our strong fibers now forgot.

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 two bridges above the Via Mala gorge. Below in the gorge, the mist from a waterfall of the river Rhine.

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

Large gardens and thick forests are landmarks to several metropolitan areas of Japan. Hidden in these peaceful greens, Japanese tradition unfolds.

Spiritual elements

Stone, water and wood: the spiritual geometry of Japan is based on few natural elements, blended as nature would do.
