Switzerland. Canton Ticino. Corippo lies in the Verzasca valley. An old woman, a german tourist, with a hat and a smartphone sits on the terrace of the unique restaurant in Corippo. With a population of just 16, Corippo is the smallest municipality in Switzerland. Despite this, it possesses the trappings of communities many times its size such as its own coat of arms and a town council consisting of three local citizens. The village has maintained its status as an independent entity since its incorporation in 1822. 9.05.13 © 2013 Didier Ruef
