Switzerland's 731st birthday is an opportunity for us to strengthen our ties with our country of origin and move closer together despite the distance. To mark the occasion, we have created a video message for you: The whole team sends you warm greetings for the Swiss National Day through our director, Ariane Rustichelli.

The video was created as part of the "Missione 1 agosto" of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA). This project links the Fifth Switzerland with virtual contributions to 1 August. This year, for the first time, there will be a world tour of Swiss embassies and consulates.
