Emanuel Agustoni: I was born on May 3, 1960, in Zurich and I am registered resident of the towns Morbio and Urdorf in Switzerland.

I grew up in Urdorf, just outside of Zurich. Through my professional and political activities I enjoy a broad network of contacts. I am chairman of Urdorf's account auditing committee and a member of Urdorf’s Free Democratic Party of Switzerland (FDP). I have been active in banking and finance for over thirty years.

The City of Dietikon

Did you know that the name Dietikon is proudly carved into the Arc de Triomphe in Paris? On the 25th of September, 1799, in the midst of a pan-European war, General André Massena led the French army across the Limmat River at Dietikon and launched the successful Battle of Zurich. This bold move is commemorated on the famous monument in Paris.

In fact, the first mention of Dietikon goes all the way back to the 445 AD, when a tribe of Alemanni, the Dieto, lived in the region.

Dietikon has always been an open-minded, multicultural city. Even in the wake of the Reformation in the 16th century, its Catholics and Protestants shared churches harmoniously.

It was Napoleon who determined that Dietikon today is in Canton Zurich. He dissolved the previous administrative district, the Canton of Baden, and granted Dietikon to Zurich while nearby Bergdietikon went to Canton Argovia.

Since the 1930s, Dietikon has welcomed many immigrants from southern Europe, and today the city still enjoys a multicultural charm as it continues to grow, most recently in the new neighborhood of Limmatfeld.

The 1950s saw the beginnings of Dietikon’s now considerable industrial development, not least because the town’s business-minded civic leaders made land for factories free to developers.

Dietikon sits strategically between Zurich and Baden. This central location has meant that all important transport arteries from Zurich to Bern and Basel––both rail and road––pass through its borders. On a more local level, Dietikon is the nexus of an important regional rail network that connects it to Bremgarten and Mutschellen.

And the marshaling yards of the greater Limmattal area, comprising Dietikon and Spreitenbach, are the largest in all of Europe.

In parallel with my vocation as a banker, which rewards close attention to detail, Dietikon’s fascinating railroad history has led me to my favorite hobby, model trains.
