Switzerland. Canton Ticino. Corippo lies in the Verzasca valley. Canyoning activities in the river. A man with a red wet suit and a helmet is jumping from a rock into the water. With a population of just 16, Corippo is the smallest municipality in Switzerland. Despite this, it possesses the trappings of communities many times its size such as its own coat of arms. The village has maintained its status as an independent entity since its incorporation in 1822. 9.05.13 © 2013 Didier Ruef
