I think its probably cyanescens. The cap color can change dramatically based on growing conditions and genetics.

Maybe Panaeolus cyanescens, but I’m not sure because of the cap color. Panaeolus cyanescens were already found in that part of Switzerland and also in northern Italy. The climate is hot and wet during summer (many thunderstorm days).

very nice
