This is certainly a strange event to occur due to the increased glacial melting from climate change: Italy and Switzerland have decided to redraw their border because of Alpine glaciers dissolving. The mountains in the affected area used to be the clear distinguishing mark to separate the two countries, but it’s not so clear anymore. The border was first drawn in 1861, but in the last 20 years has seen a big change. Good news for the surrounding townspeople though – they won’t be forced to switch their nationality, as the border is drawn 4,000 metres above sea level.
