Video and photography portraits for the visitor center at the Gotthard Pass

Original films and audio documents, authentic objects and a children’s trail: the Museo Nazionale del San Gottardo brings the history of the Gotthard to life from its origins around 1200 to the present day.
In this journey through the centuries, the tunnels and caverns carved into the rock of the Gotthard are the leitmotif. The route runs through seven themed rooms, ranging from the Uri Hole to the AlpTransit base tunnel, from power station tunnels to mountain military fortifications. A prelude to the new permanent exhibition is an extraordinary multimedia sound and image show set up on the top floor, in which original and animated films, drawings, paintings and photographs are edited together to create a fascinating collage.
