How can Italian names of climbs be so beautiful and the German ones so ugly
Irredentism first and fascism following lol
Some italian names in Südtirol are laughable, some others are a good attempt at italianizing those names. Sometimes it's an italian name trying to sound like the german counterpart, sometimes italians took the ancient latin name and rehabilitated the name like in Vibidina (latin)---> Sterzing (deu)----->Vipiteno (ita).
Some names in the region are a fascinating mixture of cultures like "Prad am Stilfserjoch".

I mean, the names around Bozen/Bolzano and some border regions are actually real Italian names (you can already find them on older maps from the napoleonic era) and weren't just invented by Ettore Tolomei.
