This territory, called South Tyrol in common English, is more or less the German speaking part of the autonomous region Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol. It is known as: Provinz Bozen or Südtirol among the German-speaking inhabitants; Provincia di Bolzano, Alto Adige or Sud Tirolo among the Italian-speaking inhabitants. The official name is the Autonomous Province of Bolzano in English, Provincia Autonoma di Bolzano-Alto Adige in Italian, Autonome Provinz Bozen-Südtirol in German, and Provinzia Autonoma de Bulsan-Südtirol in Ladin.

From 1815 to 1918 this territory was part of the Austrian and Austro-Hungarian County of Tyrol and included also three municipalities (Cortina d’Ampezzo, Colle Santa Lucia/Verseil, and Livinallongo del Col di Lana/Buchenstein) now part of the province of Belluno (Veneto).


Note: Several localities/areas (mainly National Parks) are protected by law (see website in refs.); a permit is necessary (PDF of form downloadable from http://www.mineralien-suedtirol.it/media/pdf/Ansuchen_geowissenschaftliche_Sammeltaetigkeit_DE.pdf).

Note on toponymy: for the German-speaking area the places are named according to both German and Italian nomenclatures; for the Ladin-speaking area (Badia Valley, Gardena Valley) toponyms are reported according to the relevant nomenclatures locally in use (when Ladin and Italian toponyms are different, they usually go in the order: Ladin, Italian, German or Italian, Ladin, German).
