Apropos culture – you can find plenty more of this at the Museo d’Arte della Città di Lugano, also known simply as the Museo d’Arte.
The three-floor winery was designed by the famous architect Mario Botta. The top floor of the building features a sober yet elegant tasting room where seminars, events, wine tastings, cooking courses and dinners can be organised.
The University of Lugano (Università della Svizzera italiana-USI) was founded in 1996. USI, as the only Italian-speaking university outside Italy, promotes and preserves the culture of Italian Switzerland in the Swiss academia, and serves as a cultural bridge to Italy, especially thanks to its tight collaborations with the main universities of Lombardy (Northern Italy).
