Summary/Abstract: Federalism is highly developed in Italy and the High-Adige/South Tyrol region provides an example of wide independence provided for by devolution. This independence was obtained through a long process of negotiation which took place between the Italian government, local independence parties and the Austrian government, from the end of the Second World War to the beginning of the 21st century. The High-Adige/South Tyrol thus provides an interesting illustration of the links between “territory and identity” among various linguistic communities, the largest of which are the German speaking and Ladino populations. How then does the notion of borders apply to the High-Adige/ South Tyrol? Are these borders internal or external; geographical, cultural or economic? In this context should we then leave aside the notion of the borders of the Nation State and approach the High-Adige/South Tyrol rather from a “Euroregions” perspective?
