The Leventina District is part of the Canton of Ticino, the largely Italian-speaking region of Switzerland close to the border with Italy and crossed by the ancient pilgrimage route, the Via Francigena. In the Giornico village, an outstanding complex of historical buildings known as Casa Stanga – a former house and inn with beautiful frescoes dating back to the late 16th century – hosts the Museo di Leventina, an ethnographic museum whose collections spans popular religions, sacred art, home economics and craftsmanship.
