Bolzano Firmiano-Casanova

In recent years, these two new quarters have been created on the edge of Bolzano, in the direction of Appiano and Merano

On the municipal border between Bolzano and Appiano on the Wine Road, the green spaces and orchards gave way to two new quarters in recent years. One of them is Casanova (Kaiserau) in the southwest of the town, a completely newly built ensemble with its own train station and numerous blocks of flats, each of them grouped around a green area. From the houses around the Anita Pichler Square, the wooded hill of the Kaiserberg can be seen. It marks the northern end of the Monte di Mezzo, which rises between the Oltradige area and the South Tyrolean Bassa Atesina. Firmiano Castle, home of the Messner Mountain Museum Firmiano, towers on the Kaiserberg.

If you follow the Via Resia road - where the Passage of Remembrance commemorates a dark chapter in history - towards north, one of the major streets in Bolzano, the next new residential area follows: the houses of Firmiano (Firmian) opposite the Palasport hall and the Resia Sports Grounds. They form the extension towards the west of the housing estates previously built here. Together with the houses, commercial areas and a local recreation zone with playground, skater zone and dog run were established. Both quarters are part of the district of Don Bosco.

The name Firmiano is historical: This is how Firmiano Castle was called already centuries ago. The large apartment blocks between Casanova and Firmiano were built for the first time according to the highly energy-efficient ClimateHouse A standards. This concept developed in Bolzano is being applied here on a large scale and guarantees a high quality of living and low CO-2 emissions.
