Visit to LAC Lugano Arte e Cultura
For a taste of international metropolitan flair, I regularly leave tranquil Ascona behind to spend time in Lugano, the largest town in Ticino. In addition to strolling round the streets of the town and enjoying aperitifs on the shores of Lake Lugano, I always visit the LAC Lugano Arte e Cultura. Even if it is just to see the striking architectural structure, you should pay a visit to this newly created centre for art and culture.
The extensive programme comprises temporary exhibitions, events, musical events, theatre and dance performances, along with a variety of cultural initiatives. LAC is also home to the Museo d’arte della Svizzera italiana (Art Museum of Italian Switzerland), Lugano, formed by the amalgamation of the Cantonal Art Museum and the Art Museum of the City of Lugano. Located on three levels, the gallery houses a permanent exhibition containing the collections of the City of Lugano and of Canton Ticino, temporary exhibitions, and site-specific installations.
I hope you have an inspiring day and great fun!
