Link to Switzerland

In the southern area of Switzerland, the Canton (State) of Tessin which is the Italien-speaking part, the UNESCO mountain “Monte San Giorgio” is one of the richest places in the world regarding fossiles.

The famous Swiss photographer, Hannes Schmid from Zurich, invented the “Marlboro Man” who brought the spirit of the Cowboy’s to the cities.
