Although Ronco sopra Ascona is a small village and rather far from larger towns, it has nonetheless always been the centre of a certain amount of cultural activity and was also the birthplace or the town of adoption of representatives of the artistic and cultural world such as, Antonio Ciseri, Richard Seewald and Erich Maria Remarque, just to mention a few.
Here, many of these found an ideal spot where to live and work. The beauty of the landscape and the peacefulness that have always characterized Ronco sopra Ascona, thus provided inspiration to many a mind and even today, people from the cultural world choose to live here, like, for example, the writer of several successful novels Eveline Hasler.

Thus, culture has always had and still has a place of primary importance here.
