Translated from sp. wikipedia[change source]

I am sorry if my translation from the spanish wikipedia was not perfect and satisfactory for some users. I did my best, and I hope they can help......Anyway, I removed the "merge" tag because the page is clearly related not only to the contemporary "province of Bolzano", but even to the french years when the name was related to other geographical-political areas in Veneto. Furthermore the article is related to the "name" Alto Adige and the history related to this name: half in contemporary times and half in napoleonic times. Hope everything is OK now. Bye to everybody.

I am still proposing a merge. Different articles for different names of the same thing don't make sense to me. Historical information can easily be merged into the history section. Osiris (talk) 05:28, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
I don't agree with the merge. It is like merging Gallia with France (in the history section of France): they are different names of the same thing....but they deserve different articles, IMHO (and the encyclopedia gets more "expanded" and comprehensive). --Compte2013 (talk) 14:57, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
Okay, I can't really argue with that. Perhaps, then, we could at least put a hatnote at the top for anybody searching for the article on today's Alto Adige. Or even move it to Alto Adige in history or History of Alto Adige. I'd be happy with either. Osiris (talk) 03:04, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

Recent change[change source]

@Osiris, Auntof6: Because an IP recently reverted from Osiris' version of the article (a redirect) to a version last edited by Auntof6. This one is above my paygrade, so to speak, so I'll leave it to the two of you to figure out. Etamni | ✉   20:40, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

Note added later: This applies to several related pages as well. Etamni | ✉   21:33, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

Etymology[change source]

Like the Department of Alto Adige is related to History, this article on "Alto Adige" is related to the etymology of the name Alto Adige. Clearly, this article has nothing to do with the history of this Italian region. I wonder why some German & Austrian wikipedians want to erase the simple existence of this name.....sincerely, it is ridiculous their nationalism.....B. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.80.86.125 (talk) 16:18, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Attention IP user: YOU are welcome to contribute to make a better version of the article. Nobody is "erasing" history or anything else here; it is simply the case that nobody -- that is, none of our volunteers -- has written about it yet. If you want to contribute a better version of the article, please make sure that you include sources for the material you add, or someone may think that it is vandalism and revert it.

I agree with the opinion of user:96.80.86.125. The article is related ONLY to the "etymology" of the name Alto Adige. So, there it is no need to merge with the political medieval entity called South Tyrol by the Austrians...B
