Abstract

In the past few years, as European countries have become more aware of the problem of tobacco, the discussion of the topic has intensified on a national and international level. Ireland and Italy have already passed very restrictive non-smoking laws and Ticino, perhaps due to its geographic location, has been the first canton to insist on a ban on smoking. Our research monitors changes in public opinion with respect to the introduction of the absolute non-smoking law in public buildings in Ticino. The monitoring of three distinct panel studies, Ticino population (1000), Ticino hotel and restaurant employees (150) and tourists (500), was funded by the Swiss Federal Office for Public Health (BAG) and has lasted two years.
