In a charming corner of Lake Lugano, a few steps from Italy, the Customs Museum illustrates past and present of the management and surveillance of the borders (fight against illegal traffics and forgery, prevention of trade in endangered species, and much more) and tells stories about a region which identity has been always defined by the border.
Lugano’s new cultural centre, LAC Lugano Arte e Cultura was created with the aim of adding value to the cultural and artistic life of the city and the region. It is endowed with a concert and theatre hall and a museum, the first in the region designed for this purpose.
This playful exhibition invites children into an interactive world where they themselves become the creators. Through different activities using the overhead projector, visitors make use of materials and surfaces in order to create fleeting images which envelop the space.
