The exhibition (Valais à la une. Un siècle vu par les médias) highlights the Valais media and their work of the past hundred years.

The show aims to show the work of journalists and photojournalists through a century of events and reports of all kinds: opening of the Simplon tunnel, flooding of the Rhône, women’s right to vote, disasters and scandals, the Covid-19 pandemic and many other subjects.

Around a hundred journalists, reporters and photojournalists tell in words and 400 images how they practice their profession.
