Description
Before World War I, Bolzano was part of the Austro-Hungarian county of Tyrol. It was annexed by Italy at the end of World War I and on 1 January 1927 became a provincial capital. At the time of its annexation, Bolzano was primarily a German-speaking city. In 1910, 29,000 inhabitants were German-speaking and only 1,300 Italian-speaking. In the 1920s, along with the rest of the province, the city was subjected to an intensive Italianization programme under orders from Benito Mussolini. The aim was to outnumber the local German-speaking population by tripling the population with Italian-speaking immigrants drawn from the old provinces, and to transfer as many of the German-speaking population as possible to the Third Reich via the Option Agreement of 1939–40. During World War II, Bolzano was the site of the Nazi Bolzano Transit Camp, a concentration camp for Jews and political prisoners. After liberation from Fascism and Nazism and due to the Paris Treaty of 1946, Bolzano has become the capital of the autonomous South Tyrol province, whose federalism has been further improved in 1972.
