About us

The project “Greenway Lugano” is the result of a learning  experience which aimed to study the territory around Lugano through the use of technological tools for tourism promotion.

36 students of the Master in International Tourism participating in the course eTourism Lab (2012-2013) offered by the University of Lugano, Switzerland, were involved in the project “Greenway Lugano” by producing the content of the app. The project was supported by the project assistants Sergio Jimenez Valdes, Memon Hazique Gul, Fabienne Bögli, Marco Paolo Soro, and Emanuele Mele. The project was supervised by Prof. Lorenzo Cantoni and Dr. Elena Marchiori from the laboratory webatelier.net at the University of Lugano, Switzerland.

Initiator of the project “Greenway Lugano” is the Rotary Club Lugano, supported by Ente Turistico del Luganese – Lugano,  TicinoSentieri – Ticino hiking association and the association Capanne del Ticino.

The friends of Greenway are Hotel International Au Lac Lugano, Società Navigazione del Lago di Lugano, Hotel City Lugano, Wanderungen.ch, Vallemaggia Turismo, 9 Pages, and Wandersite.
