The South Tyrolean Wine Museum has over 50 objects that can be assigned to the vineyard keeper, the "Saltner". The project, which ran from December 2018 to December 2020, pursued the goal of comprehensively classifying these objects in the cultural-historical context, from the early modern era to the 20th century. The project results have been published in several publications; they will also be collected in a volume of articles (expected to appear in 2021) and in a special exhibition (expected to open in 2022).
The project was financed by funds from the Research Fund of the South Tyrolean Provincial Museums.
Duration of the project: Autumn 2018 to December 2020
Brigitte Strauß (until September 2019), Stefan Morandell (until December 2020)

We still ask for your cooperation!
Is your family still in possession of documents relating to Saltner affairs, e. g. Saltner regulations, invoices etc.? Do you have photographs or other memorabilia? Can you still remember Saltner in your home village? Do you know field and farm names that refer to Saltner or locations of huts?
The project is finished, but we are still collecting. We look forward to your comments at weinmuseum_at_landesmuseen.it or at (+39) 0471 963 168.
