Some words about Bolzano
Bolzano-Bozen is an autonomous province situated in North
Italy with having its borders to Austria and Switzerland.
Together with Trento, it makes up the region of Trentino Alto
Adige/Südtirol one of the five autonomous regions in Italy.
Bolzano happens to be a unique example of cohabitation with
hosting Austro-Hungarian origined inhabitants as majority of
its population who speak an Austro-Bavarian dialect of
German, about a quarter of the province is Italian-speaking
and a small minority speaks Ladin as mother tongue, while
both Italian and German are the official languages of
Bolzano-Bozen, As a result of sheltering a multilingual and
multicultural population, Bolzano happens to be one of the
most important examples of ‘coexistence atmosphere’ in the
territory of Italy.

The province in total has more than 500.000 inhabitants and
hosts the Free University of Bozen which makes it easier to
find free time activities compared to the rest of the smaller
Italian cities. Bolzano is also blessed with the luck of being
situated among the Alps and the Dolomites which were
declared as world heritage by UNESCO in 2009. The town of Bolzano is in easy commute to Trento,
where InCo is :-), in about 40minutes by train and in about 1,5hours to Innsbruck, Austria.
