Two friendly little old people are debating whether his car is electric or gasoline when Roger Federer arrives with his Mercedes-Benz (hybrid) in a picturesque village in southern Italy. However, this spot, shot last July by the Zurich agency CZAR Film, was shot in Carona, near Lugano.

Given the difficulty of traveling (quarantines, tests, uncertainties, etc.) and that of bringing together people from different countries, Eva Ruffini, communications manager of the Ticino Film Commission (TFC) which promotes the canton as a shooting destination, observes that this past year, Swiss producers have relied heavily on Ticino.
