Lugano Scal

The Angioli staircase, as well as the nearby funicular railway, now disused, have a glorious past.

The adjacent Church of Santa Maria degli Angioli is one of the most important Renaissance historical monuments, not only in the Canton of Ticino but in the whole of Switzerland, and the scenery is among the most enchanting the city of Lugano has to offer.

Today,  the entire area is the subject of studies aimed at restoring the proper value to this connection between the lake and the upper part of the city, towards the Tassino Park.

There are approx. 135 metres, a sequence of approx. 330 steps that are already part of running routes for many enthusiasts, but today we propose to put you to the test, with yourself and with others.

We therefore look forward to seeing you on Sunday 6 October afternoon to take part in this first edition of the Lugano Scal, which, like the Morcote Morcote Scal, aims to enhance the area's monumental stairways.

Places are limited to the first 100 participants in the order of registration.

At the end of the event there will be a convivial moment together with a pasta party at the nearby Restaurant-Bar Luini 6 at the LAC, in the square of the same name.
