Other Participants


On Friday afternoon, there is an excursion to the Lago di Luzzone, a reservoir in the upper Blenio valley, with the possibility of participating in a guided tour to the dam and the embedded hydroelectric power station, or going on a short hike (weather permitting). The conference dinner takes place in the Ristorante Luzzone da Angela, with a beautiful view on the lake and the surrounding mountains. And in case you are into climbing, then you might be interested in bringing your gear and having a go at the longest artificial sport climbing route in the world.
