Switzerland. Canton Ticino. Verzasca valley. Fredy Fuchs blows his alphorn in the empty reservoir of the Verzasca dam. The reservoir is dried due to the first renovation works since dam’s construction (60 years ago). The Contra Dam, commonly known as the Verzasca Dam, is an arch dam on the Verzasca River. It creates the Vogorno lake, a water surface area of 1.68 km2. On the hill (L), the village of Mergoscia. 22.01.22 © 2022 Didier Ruef
