Alexandre, the souvenir maker

A great enthusiast of digital creation overall, in life I am a mediamatician reinvented as an Interactive Media Designer. I’ve always been immersed in that world since a very young age and what matters to me is to create, never mind what form that takes. In 2015, I launched my YouTube channel on which I share with my community videos on the theme of Switzerland or my life in general while having fun and doing whatever goes through my mind. A project that has enabled me among other things to take part in several events such as Le Royaume du Web, a festival that brings together many internet talents. Today, I spend most of my time making videos on TikTok, practising music or sharing on Instagram photos of streets and architecture with my own vision, showing places under a different angle to highlight details that wouldn’t be noticed at first glance.
« “Lausanne for me is first and foremost the city where I was born, but also my everyday playing field. With its interesting architecture, its spectacular viewpoints and small shopping streets, it’s a surprising town that offers a great diversity of enjoyments. Not forgetting its gastronomy, festivals, museums and the evenings spent contemplating the sunset by the lake. Everyone gets something out of it!” »
«A place that reminds me of Parisian shopping arcades. With those small boutiques and restaurants, the place is bathed in natural light and the floor tiles add that extra touch that is so photogenic.»
Riguardo a Piazza de Saint-François - Strada de Bourg
«Lovers of good coffees and teas, this is my favourite place for small extravagances. I always get excellent advice and the choice of products is simply incredible!»
Riguardo a Saveur PimenThé
«Impossible to end my day without a short walk by the Ouchy lakeside. The ideal place to observe a magnificent sunset on the lake with the Alps as a backdrop. I love the atmosphere that emerges from the children at play, skateboarders and other artists.»
Riguardo a Lacustre Ouchy
«The city’s small gem. A magnificent staircase that recalls Lausanne during the centuries gone by. The surrounding buildings’ pretty façades give even more appeal to this must-see place. The ascent might seem hard, but it’s worth the effort as when you reach the top, you’re at the foot of the Cathedral and have a beautiful view over the town!»
Riguardo a Escaliers du Marché
«To my mind, it’s the most beautiful panorama! I can’t count the number of times I’ve walked through the vineyards in that breathtaking setting! The best way to unplug and reconnect with nature.»
Riguardo a I vigneti terrazzati del Lavaux UNESCO
«Nostalgic of my trip to New York, I feel I’m back there when I savour one of the many bagels they offer. Good street food just the way I love it with fresh and local ingredients. A shoutout for their homemade iced tea that is excellent.»
Riguardo a Bagel on the Way
«A place that is as unusual as it is iconic. Located under the arches of the Pont Bessières, I don’t miss a single opportunity to go there and savour a good local beer. Chilled atmosphere guaranteed!»
Riguardo a Les Grandes Roches
«Walking in these charming narrow streets where historical monuments rub shoulders with typical bars plunges me into a different time. I find the streets so photogenic and the atmosphere they convey simply incredible! I suggest you roam all the streets and end on the Esplanade of the St-Maire Castle, from where the view is stunning.»
Riguardo a La Cité
«How not to notice the building that takes centre stage in the heart of the city? I can’t stop myself from taking all manner of pictures and from all possible points of view! It’s even more interesting when you know it’s Switzerland’s first skyscraper! With its air of New York and unusual shape, there are many ways of showcasing it.»
