Information about BOLZANO The recorded history of Bolzano began with the arrival of Roman garrisons in the 1st century BC, although the area had been inhabited at least 2.500 years earlier. Today's town center began 900 years ago and is characterized by Gothic architecture. It was constructed by the bishops of Trento at a key junction between North and South, with German-speaking tradesmen on one side and their "Italic" counterparts on the other. The city was constructed during the 12th and 13th century: the city walls and a drainage ditch were built and it obtained municipal rights. In 1277 it passed under the rule of the Counts of Tyrol, The fascist period saw the development of the industrial area but mainly caused great damage to the environment and the landscape. Bolzano lies 265 m above sea level along one of the most important routes running from the Mediterranean to the North Sea, conecting North and South. It is hemmed in by mountains terraced high with vineyards, across which a couple of footpaths up from the valley basin give a brief taste of the countryside. Bolzano an elegant frame for the meeting between the fresh northern wind and the radiant Mediterranean sun, a benediction for vines sagging with the weight of bountiful bunches, filled with the flavours of days gone by.
