The SWISS NATIONAL DAY of 1 Agosto
The SWISS NATIONAL DAY is an anniversary that celebrates the birth of the Swiss Confederation in 1291.
The Swiss National Day was established in 1891 and is celebrated in a sober and federal way, with political speeches, bonfires, fireworks, lanterns and flags.
Every year, a Swiss municipality hosts the official celebrations, which are broadcast on national television. Some locations offer special shows.
In Lugano, the Swiss national day is celebrated with a rich program of events involving the city center and the lakefront.
The day begins at 6 in the morning with the diana played by the Tamburini Luganesi. At 10:15 the authorities and the Lugano Volunteer Corps go to Piazza Indipendenza to pay homage to the obelisk of Independence, a symbol of Lugano history.
At 11:00 there is a concert by the Castagnola Philharmonic in Palazzo Civico.
The most awaited moment is at 10.30 pm, when the fireworks color the sky and the lake of Lugano with a show entitled "Emotions of colours".
For those who want to attend the show from the lake, the Società Navigazione Lago di Lugano organizes grandstand-boats with limited seats and upon reservation. Along the lakefront there are also various gastronomic animations to taste the local specialities.
In Chiasso, the Swiss national holiday is celebrated with a ceremony in Piazza Col. C. Bernasconi, where the authorities, associations and citizens meet at 19:00.
You can hear the sound of the bells, the national anthem and the productions of the Civic Philharmonic of Balerna. Afterwards, the party continues at the Grotto Grütli/Casa Urani, in the Sottopenz area, where you can taste the local specialities.
The Swiss National Day in Chiasso and Lugano is an opportunity to remember the history and values of the Confederation, but also to share a moment of conviviality and joy.
