Ticino Day

If you like traditions, Ticino has a lot to offer. Discover the region's living history by actively taking part in the milling of the corn (for the polenta), by learning and practising the bowls' game (il Gioco delle bocce) and by getting a smattering of the local idiom, the ticinese dialect.
