Artist Frommel (1789-1863)
Carl Ludwig Frommel was a German draftsman, etcher, copper and steel engraver, professor in Karlsruhe and director of the Grand Ducal Picture Gallery.
Title Botzen / Bolzano Tyrol
Year ca. 1840
Description View shows the city of Bolzano in the northern Italian province of South Tyrol.
In Bolzano, since its foundation, several annual markets (fairs) were held, and in 1635 the Tyrolean princess Claudia de' Medici granted the Bolzano Mercantile Magistrate (commercial court). The later city of Bolzano was built around 1170-1180 as a planned market settlement with a central alley lined with arcades and a market square (Kornplatz). The industrialization of South Tyrol started from Bolzano, where the Herrmann-Kofler cotton mill was founded in 1848. Tourism, which began to flourish in the 19th century, was centered in the spa town of Gries, but several hotels were also built near the train station.
