Picturesque building and sign in the town of Brunico, South Tyrol in Italy, Europe.

The town of Brunico or Bruneck in the South Tyrol region of Italy is tne main town of the Pusteria Valley. Most of the towns and villages of this area have both Italian and German names because until 1919 South Tyrol belonged to Austria.After World War I Austria gave the area to Italy and although some people relocated to Germany many stayed and have kept their traditions and dual life style. Some of the buildings of Brunico in Italy date back to the 15th century when the town started to prosper due to the trade between Augsburg and Venice. Pusteria Valley was on the route of this trading and Brunico was used as a storage area.The first record of Bruneck, Italy was February 23, 1256 when the town was made up of two rows of houses. About eighty years later a moat and walls encircled the town and more houses were built. The town survived a devastating fire in 1723 and bombs in World War ll and today Bruneck is proud of its service and manufacture businesses. ... continue below the picture...
