Views of Lake Lugano from Savosa, where the novelist Anthony Burgess and his second wife Liana owned a chalet (Via Cantonale 63).

Burgess writes in 'You've Had Your Time', the second volume of his autobiography: 'I am very much in Europe here in Lugano....Switzerland...is not quite Europe: it remained aloof from Europe's last agony, as did Ireland...'

Article by Burgess on Lugano: http://www.nytimes.com/1987/11/22/tra...... He writes: 'I have a chalet about two miles from Lugano. This means that I am in semirural Ticino, looking down on the lake....a very well-kept town....Swiss dignity and no vulgarity....No hawker will accost you, no corner-boy rob you, no prostitute seek to allure you.'
