Language, Cultural, Sing
The southernmost of Switzerland’s twenty-six cantons, the
Ticino, may speak Italian, sing Italian, eat Italian, drink Italian and rival
any Italian region in scenic beauty—but it isn’t Italy,” so writes author
Paul Hofmann1 describing the one Swiss canton where Italian is the
required language and the cultural tie is to Italy to the south, not to the
rest of Switzerland to the north.
