The animated film EDUARDO SPELTERINI provides an insight into the adventurous life of the Swiss aviation pioneer of the same name. Born Eduard Schweizer in 1852 in Bazenheid (SG) into the poorest of circumstances, Spelterini was not only the first to fly over the Alps in 1898, but also changed the way we see the world with spectacular photographs from his balloon. His soaring flight came to an abrupt end with the outbreak of the First World War. All that remains of Eduardo Spelterini are the memories of an exciting life and some of the streets and squares that bear his name today.
