Photographer's Note

The Gotthard Pass or St. Gotthard Pass (Italian: Passo del San Gottardo) (2106 m) is a high mountain pass in between Airolo in the canton of Ticino, and Göschenen in the canton of Uri, connecting the northern German-speaking part of Switzerland with the Italian-speaking part, along the route onwards to Milan. The pass is closed from october to june.

The Gotthard is a place of myths and legends, of fables and national identity, where bridges are built by devils and nature displays its primordial power.
