This is the third of a series of essays about the Alps as a center of European identity and the divisions between the countries that share the territory of that mountain range.
It is a digression though the Swiss lakes where philosophers, artists and musicians took refuge during their exiles. We are following the migrations of Richard Wagner, Friedrich Nietzsche and Thomas Mann, as well as W.G. Sebald’s ritorno in patria.
