Summer edition – by Beatrix Koch
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.
The Piazza Grande is both the heart of the Festival and its showcase. This enormous space than can seat an audience of up to 8,000, and makes every screening a unique event.
In this period of time the city turns into a wonderful meeting point and thanks to its beautiful surroundings, Locarno offers various relaxing activities.
