Video : The Monument to Victory in Bolzano
It was in 2011, when the Monument to Victory in Bolzano (Bozen), a relic from 1928, should be valorized and explained in its historical context. Under the massive building near the Talvera Meadows and the town centre, in 2014 a permanent exhibition was opened - the 13 subsurface rooms were restored for this purpose. Today an outer and an inner course lead through the corridors and reveal almost a century of South Tyrolean history on the basis of video recordings, historical documents and descriptions. One aspect is also the monumental fascist bas-relief by Hans Piffrader which can be seen on the Piazza del Tribunale (Courthouse Square) in Bolzano. In 2017, it was equipped with giant letters citing Hannah Arendt "No one has the right to obey".
The outer perimeter "History and region" of the exhibition within the Monument to Victory takes up the basis dimensions of Bolzano's and South Tyrol's history between 1918 and 1945, the period of the two World Wars. The inner perimeter "The monument and its history", however, handles the history of the Monument to Victory itself, from the destruction of the earlier Kaiserjäger Monument (Tyrolean Rifle Regiment) to the present times. Furthermore there are four Corner Rooms which are dedicated to reflection and gaining further insights from the exhibition. An entrance for people with disabilities is located in the Corso Libertà road where the urban bus lines stop.
