Switzerland: Beautiful Bellinzona

I have a story on Bellinzona, Switzerland in a recent issue of International Living.

I filed the story with the title "Bella Bellinzona." I've always thought of cities as feminine. Most European languages agree: la ville, la cite, la ciudad, a cidade, la citta, die Stadt...

The editors retitled the piece as "Belli Bellinzona." I don't know why.
