Coca Cola Christmas Truck

Thanks to the initiative of the Società dei Mercanti of Lugano, the legendary Coca-Cola Christmas truck will be parked on the lakefront in front of the Piazza Manzoni fountain and will bring with it a multitude of gifts and numerous other surprises for the whole family. The presence of the likeable Santa bearded, panzone and red dressed man is also guaranteed. He himself became one of the symbols of Christmas thanks to the advertising campaign commissioned to the designer Haddon Sundlom in 1931 by the American Coca-Cola Company of Atlanta.
