The Brenner way

The journey from Mitteleuropa to the Mediterranean

On 11 April 1974, with the opening of the motorway section between Klausen and Bozen/Bolzano South, for the first time a car could drive all 314 kilometres of the A22 without interruption. As a result, Trentino Alto Adige/Südtirol, but more generally Italy, was connected to Europe, and consequently to the world, by a fast and direct corridor via the Brenner Pass, a pass that had already played a leading role in millennia of history.

How much and how this impacted on the territories, on their social and economic development and on their relations with the surrounding realities is the central subject of the reflection proposed by the Fondazione Museo storico del Trentino | Trentino history museum foundation and the Brenner motorway (Autostrada del Brennero Spa), in collaboration with the Engineer Lino Gentilini Foundation, in the exhibition "La Via del Brennero", which will be inaugurated on 11 April at 17.30 at Le Gallerie (the Tunnels of Piedicastello) in Trento.

The project, presented in Italian, German and English, is divided into four macro sections - 'Infrastructure', 'Traffic', 'Society' and 'Green Corridor'.

Thanks to a selection of images, videos, texts, interviews and objects, the route allows us to discover the importance and even some of the secrets of the mobility of yesterday, today and tomorrow. The exhibition focuses both on issues posed by construction, such as the daring and innovative solutions adopted with viaducts to overcome narrow Alpine valleys, as well as the challenges of tomorrow.

Ecological transition, digitalisation and intermodality are the cornerstone of the transformation of the Brenner axis into Europe's first Green Corridor. In the exhibition visitors can see how hydrogen, electricity, photovoltaics, connected driving or the strengthening of the railways are not mere potentialities, but keywords of already existing projects. The entire exhibition concept and graphics were designed by the DOC a communication group from Bolzano.
