Messages of hope during quarantine are being projected on the Metterhorn mountain in the Swiss Alps, the most famous in the country.
The Matterhorn mountain, also known as Monte Cervino, is one of the most famous in Switzerland. Located in the idyllic village of Zermatt in the Swiss Alps, it is one of the most photographed attractions in the country. However, in recent days, the mountain scenery has emerged differently.
This is because, as a form of inspiration and resilience, messages are being projected on its top, almost 4,500 meters, to motivate people quarantined in the city due to the coronavirus. Phrases like “stay at home”, “hope” and “dream now, travel later” are appearing every night in the place, which used to gather many tourists and skiers.
“The idea is to make something pleasant for people all over the world”, explains to AFP the director of the Zermatt Tourism Office, Daniel Luggen. In addition to the messages, the Swiss and Italian flags – since the Italy was one of the countries most affected by the coronavirus and borders the country – are also being projected onto the icy mountain. According BBC report, Switzerland is actively working to contain the spread of COVID-19. So far, more than 15,475 cases have been recorded in the country and 333 deaths.
