Save the month of October 2022

This fall the Consulate General of Switzerland in San Francisco will have a focus on Ticino. We will celebrate the history of Ticino immigration to California and today’s Ticino through a series of events.

Several programs will run throughout the month of October to celebrate Ticino’s culture and the Italian language through film and literature, with culinary events, and with programs in the fields of innovation and sustainability to showcase Ticino's contemporary image.
