The story of the Swiss who went abroad and left their traces in the world.
Did you know? It was a Ticinese who erected the obelisk on St. Peter’s Square in Rome. Tsar Peter the Great’s counsellor was from Geneva. The man who designed the Eiffel Tower had Swiss origins, Zurich to be specific!
For those who want to understand the Swiss and Switzerland, the Musée du Château de Penthes tells the fascinating story of the Swiss Confederation and explains how this small yet highly interconnected country has survived and thrived in the heart of Europe since the Middle Ages.
