Locarno Film Festival

Watching a film under an open sky, enclosed within the walls of the beautiful buildings surrounding the stony piazza grande, Locarno, is an experience, residents and visitors alike, look forward to enjoying every summer.

The excitement of magical warm nights in the piazza Grande, is not confined to this famous square. Not at all. Everyone is celebrating and honoring human creativity, Art, and cultural richness through different talks, events, and workshops.

This is why I’m so excited to announce that I will be joining in the celebration! I will be hosting a series of Ticinese aperitifs not only to honor Ticinese art, but also Ticinese culture.

I must say that preparing for these events is a lot of hard work, but also lots of fun. Looking for the best Ticinese ingredients for the aperitif has taken me down the road of discovery. I’ve learned a thing or two about the delicious Ticinese salametto, and have come to believe the best cheese in town comes from lonely wooden sheds along an isolated road up to some isolated valley.

What’d be better than a starry night to watch a good film, you’d ask? A Ticinese aperitif at Perdomo Artworks, I’d say!

      • Thanks! Darling, I live in the Netherlands. I wouldn’t be worth meeting after a bicycle ride that long.
        Still, I wish you a complete sellout!

      • In between the cheeses and a couple of glasses of wine, believe me, I wouldn’t smell my own socks (if I were to wear stinky ones that is! πŸ™‚ ). You are still very welcome to come by anytime either way. Thank you for your very nice comments…this one made me smile big πŸ™‚
