Central Trentino is a Romance dialect spoken in the North-East of Italy, which shows features belonging to both Gallo-Italic and Venetan dialects. Grammar of Central Trentino aims to present the first comprehensive grammatical description of this dialect, taking into consideration its morpho-syntactic properties and pragmatic phenomena.
The book's general approach is synchronic and focused on the language currently in use. The authors discuss a wide range of examples gathered from both oral and written sources.
The theoretical reference model is that of generative grammar, but the description of the phenomena is also accessible to a non-specialized audience.

The article compares deliberative practices within the two constituent units of the Italian Autonomous Region of Trentino-South Tyrol: the Autonomous Province of Bolzano/Bozen (South Tyrol) and the Autonomous Province of Trento (Trentino). South Tyrol’s ‘Autonomy Convention’ and Trentino’s ‘Consulta’ are consultative processes that are differently structured but have the same aim: the elaboration of proposals as to the revision of the region’s basic law, the Autonomy Statute of 1972. The article highlights differences in structures and procedures of both deliberative practices and it gives evidence on the implications such differences have in the respective sociopolitical contexts. Unlike Trentino, South Tyrol is characterized by a power-sharing system between its major language groups, German- and Italian speakers; some special rules also apply to the third language group, the Ladins. The argument developed is that, in South Tyrol, the successful settlement of conflict by means of consociational arrangements favoured the institutionalization of deliberative practices. However, the same arrangements pose challenges to deliberative practices. The article contributes to the emerging literature on pitfalls and potential of deliberative practices implemented in multilingual and divided societies.

Geschichte Tirols 1918-1920
Der Vertrag von St. Germain jährt sich im Herbst 2019 zum hundertsten Mal. Für Tirol hatte er dramatische Folgen. Das Land wurde am Brenner geteilt, das überwiegend deutschsprachige Südtirol fiel an Italien. Oswald Überegger rekonstruiert die entscheidenden Etappen der Geschichte dieses Umbruchs und veranschaulicht, wie als Folge des Ersten Weltkriegs eine bis heute virulente Minderheitenproblematik entstand.Das Buch bietet perspektivenreiche Blicke auf den Tiroler Raum in den Jahren 1918 bis 1920. Der Autor schildert nicht nur die zentralen Etappen der militärischen und politischen Entwicklung von den Januarstreiks 1918 bis zum Waffenstillstand von „Villa Giusti“. Ein besonderes Augenmerk gilt darüber hinaus den Debatten über die Tiroler Frage auf der Friedenskonferenz bis hin zur „Annexion“ Südtirols durch Italien im Oktober 1920. Die Zeitenwende jener Jahre hatte tiefgreifende Veränderungen der regionalen Mentalität zur Folge. In seinem Buch gelingt es Oswald Überegger, die vielfach verflochtene, wechselvolle und umkämpfte Geschichte der Region zwischen Bodensee und Gardasee plastisch darzustellen.
