South Tyrol in 60 seconds
South Tyrol is the northernmost province of Italy. It borders on Switzerland to the west and on Austria to the east and to the north. South Tyrol has 520,000 inhabitants and every fifth person lives in the capital of Bolzano. For more than five centuries, this region was part of Austria, until the victorious powers awarded it to their ally Italy after World War I. Today, South Tyrol is a role model for how different ethnic minorities live together, and where German, Italian and Ladin are the official languages.
