Nestled between the lake and the mountains, Lugano provides a tranquil backdrop to the MASHLM experience. Lugano lies in the southern, Italian speaking part of Switzerland, in the canton of Ticino.
Long known as a banking center, Lugano is polishing its cultural credentials with the opening of the LAC, the new art and cultural center. Yet despite these big city attractions, Lugano still retains the feel of a small friendly town surrounded by natural beauty. There are excellent transport links and a range of restaurants and accommodation.
