Every summer, Locarno – this sunny city in the southern part of Switzerland – becomes the home of the world cinema, a place charged with affection.


During the decades, the stunning Piazza Grande has also been home to many prestigious personalities like Marlene Dietrich, Sir Anthony Hopkins or Adrien Brody.
