Art Galleries Walk


A guided tour through Lugano's art galleries

Art Galleries Walk is an exciting walk through Lugano's art galleries. Created in collaboration with GAL, the city's gallery association, it will allow you to learn about the art of the present and meet some of the protagonists of avant-garde culture. Their work contributes to the city's vibrancy and internationality, and through their close look at the present you will be able to discover how the art scene is born and develops today.
