Welcome to OltreconfiniTi

People who made Ticino famous all over the world

OltreconfiniTi is offering a collection of more than 500 biographies in Italian that tell not only the story of our 'diaspora' but also the lives of who have made the opposite journey over the last two centuries: internationally-renowned figures who, in search of safety, peace and inspiration, chose Ticino as their place of residence.
