Switzerland. Canton Ticino. Oggio. Grotthard Café. Micaela Ruef (L), Camille de Righetti (C) and Paola Ranghino (R) celebrate their Matura with joy and emotion. They gently hug together and let themselves be happy. Matura or its translated terms (Mature, Matur, Maturita, Maturità, Maturität,) is a Latin name for the high-school exit exam or "maturity diploma". It is taken by young adults (usually aged from 17 to 20) at the end of their secondary education, and generally must be passed in order to apply to a university or other institutions of higher education. Matura is a matriculation examination and can be compared to A-Level exams or Abitur. A hug is a form of physical intimacy, universal in human communities, in which two people put their arms around the neck, back, or waist of one another and hold each other closely. If more than two persons are involved, this is informally referred to as a group hug. 28.06.15 © 2015 Didier Ruef
