Summary/Abstract: South Tyrol has inspired numerous in-depth analyses, mostly describing the functioning of the legal and institutional framework of the autonomous province, its adoptability in similar minority conflicts, or the history of its coming into being, with special regards to violence applied, and the role Austria as a kin-state played in the process.1 The distribution of financial competencies is a highly discussed topic as well, witnessing increased scientific and political attention since the economic crisis started to unfold in 2008. The party system of the province, however, is a subject that has received a more modest attention compared to the aforementioned issues. The following study professes to be a humble contribution to this topic.
