Love Therapy Zero was born around a mission: to offer moments of laughter and escape to children in hospital or with disabilities and has a great activity in the pediatric ward of the University Hospital of Geneva (HUG) Hopital des Enfants
During each visit, Love Therapy Zero volunteers open a window to the imagination through improvisations adapted to the child’s means. They allow him to “escape” and rediscover his universe of laughter and games.
We have decided to support this Association by making Plexiglass boxes such as these available to all the participants of the Swissitalia Summer Festival where you can donate tokens or “half tokens” that you do not use anymore.
For each Token collected we will donate 5 CHF to Love Therapy Zero, and in addition for every 100 Token collected, Radio Swissitalia will donate 100 additional Tokens for an additional value of 500 CHF.

Alcuni brani degli artisti della serata
Not just good Italian music ... 🙂
Also inside the “Villaggio Azzurro” you will find many good things to eat! That is the stands and food trucks of: Luigia, with a real fire oven that will make excellent pizzas, Casa Mozzarella with a fabulous show of freshly made mozzarella and its inevitable Apulian focaccia (or as they say “la fcazz .. “) fragrant, AJO AJO with hot and sweet wraps, plus a beautiful artisan Gelato stand will freshen up the day! The MyOlive Stand will also give you the opportunity to adopt an olive grove in Tuscany and buy the oil produced. And could italian coffee be missing? Of course not! The Caffettino with its ape-bar will be available to everyone! Yes, because coffee is offered for everyone and without limits by Radio Swissitalia!
The Italian style will be unmistakable from afar thanks to the presence of the Alfa Romeo Garage Lory dealership, main sponsor of the event that will bring 2 fantastic brand new Alfa Tonale as soon as they come out and will give us a special price for all participants !! And then the Diego Napoli and Baltea Boutique will have pop up stores inside the Village to present 100% made in Italy products of pure Italian fashion!
Italy it’s not only food and good music, there will be a special stand dedicated to the promotion of the territory and the excellence of the agri-food sector of Pordenone that the Italian Chamber of Commerce for Switzerland organizes in collaboration with Pordenone with Love, the Chamber of Commerce of Pordenone-Udine and the special company ConCentro.
You can get to know and taste tasty and typical products of the region from the following companies: Macoritto Valentino, Lattevita, Casato Bertoia, Azienda Agricola Carusone, Cristiana Bettili Wines, and Buonit – Figo Moro , some of which are already present on the Swiss market.
Goal: no queues for food trucks!
To eliminate the queues at the food trucks and simplify payments, all the products of the food truck partners of the event (sandwiches, pizzas, wraps, sweets, etc.) can be purchased EXCLUSIVELY WITH TOKENS: you can buy your tokens at the cash desk main entrance and pay with tokens for all the good things to eat that will be available at the food trucks of the evening.
In this way the payments will be fast, the sales price lists simplified and … zero queues!
