After the 1919 First World War, South Tyrol was annexed to Italy.

Before that it formed part of Austria. Despite Italianization policy
conducted earlier, two thirds of the province's population are
German-speaking. Official languages there are Italian and German.

During and after World War II, the German community of South Tirol
mounted separatist protest, dissatisfied with minority's situation
Italy. In the 1960s, the protests escalated to an action known as
Fire Night.
