South Tyrol’s history
South Tyrol, the region between Brenner and Salurn, was part of Austria up until the First World War. In the course of the peace negotiations of the First World War the province was awarded to Italy and consequently italianised. Today, South Tyrol is an autonomous province and as such is a world-wide model for minorities!
