3.30pm Opening of the library of Franz Held

The “Franz Hero Library” has been opened in San Genesio. For the library, residents were asked to provide their support by collecting or writing traditional stories and legends and submitting them to either the municipal library or the Lungomare project space.
The well-known writer Franz Hero (1862 – 1908) stayed several times in San Genesio and has “rendered outstanding service to our country through his numerous, colorful descriptions of the country and people of Tirol “. (Bolzano News, 1900). His influence on the literary and artistic world, although largely unnoticed, remains to this day. And it was from San Genesio that he became one of the initiators of the Dada movement and the literary avant-garde of the 20th century based on his texts and thoughts, which were partly inspired by South Tyrolean legends.
