agree  writeaway: Somehow I don't think asker is going to be too bothered about the use of an accent. Fwiw, with a cap A, I'd definitely leave it out.

agree  Pompeo Lattanzi: In Canton Ticino there will be abundance of French speakers, they would notice what to them is a basic mistake. Use the accent also on capitals.
