The Sechseläuten ("The six o'clock ringing of the bells") is a traditional event in Zürich dating back to the early 20th century. Following the parade of the Zünfte (guilds), the climax of the holiday is the burning of Winter in effigy, in the form of the Böögg, a figure of a snowman prepared with explosives.

This year, the “Vereinigte Zünfte zur Gerwe and Schuhmachern», one of the participating guilds, commissioned the well-known Swiss photo journalist Alberto Venzago to tell his visual story of the event.

While the 2020 event could not take place due to Covid-19, the book was still published on the date of the Sechseläuten 2020.
