Ticino once again protagonist of a major international sporting event.
After the success of the ÖKK Bike Revolution Tamaro Trophy 2022, the Velo Club Monte Tamaro has decided to confirm its presence in the increasingly exciting Swiss circuit that has gone from 3 stages last year to 5 this year.
The ÖKK Bike Revolution Tamaro Trophy 2023 is a spectacular event where high-profile sport is combined with many events specially designed for the Bike Community.
The greatest champions in the world are already ready to challenge each other on a circuit that, in the world of MTB, is universally recognized as one of the most spectacular.
More than 500 athletes are expected, including Elite, U23 and juniors, in addition to hundreds of amateur bikers who will come to us to discover our region.
Ticino becomes an international showcase, thanks to the organization of three amateur rides (the Velo Gusto long, medium and brunch), scheduled for Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 March, through the most beautiful views of our territory, with the opportunity to make known the main entrepreneurial realities, the gastronomic excellences and the breathtaking views of our region.

Rita Ackermann’s exhibition titled ‘Hidden’ will focus on a selection of recent paintings in relation to the artist’s early works from the 1990s.
The exhibition will encompass nearly fifty paintings and drawings developed over the past 30 years in New York City.
Rita Ackermann was born in 1968 in Budapest, Hungary and lives and works in New York City. She studied at the University of Fine Arts in Budapest and The New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture from the years of 1989 to 1992.
Ackermann invented images that became instant sensations, perturbing young girls that are now part of the universe of global imagery. Her drawings and paintings between 1993-95 (which will be included in the exhibition “Hidden”) depict compositions of adolescent female figures of clonelike multiples engaging in various self-destructive and hazardous activities. Her early works with their ambiguous presence serve as bridges between high and low culture, just as the myths and folk tales which often serve as merits to Ackermann’s compositions.
Twenty years later she would abandon the figure, erasing the very matter of her own work. In her ‘Mama’ series, a complex layering of visual language oscillates between abstraction and figuration into a subconscious unfolding of form—concealed deeply in the abstraction of the omnipresence. In early 2022 Ackermann began her latest series of paintings titled, ‘War Drawings’. Oil, china maker and acrylic are heavily worked into the surface of raw linen. Figures are lost, lines are scraped away to reveal shattered compositions. Each of the paintings subjugated by disaster as a purifying element for inevitable harmony.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a bilingual catalogue published by Mousse Publishing.
