Discover our proposal to live a cultural experience in Ascona


Music of many different genres, film and theatre, painting and other arts: even if cultural activities hold the top positions, you should include the area around Ascona and Locarno in the list of your preferred travelling destinations – even beyond the beautiful landscape and diverse sports offers. The following pages provide an overview of the most important events. The Casa Berno itself promotes culture as well. Therefore, do not miss our own events (culture and sports), such as our jazz weekends and our art exhibition.
