Neuchâtel – Geneva

by Lorenzo Piccoli


The Italian comedian Maurizio Crozza sometime imitates a bogus politician, former representative of the Italians abroad elected in Switzerland. When he does, he uses as a background an idyllic Swiss landscape. It is not the usual Alpine view; instead, it is a hilly, blossoming, countryside with vineyards and small houses here and there.

This is what I think of when I look outside the window of my train, just outside of Neuchâtel heading towards Yverdon-les-Bains and then Geneva or Lausanne.
