 Eurofound: Social public services: Autonomous Province of Bolzano - 'Estate Serena' programme
An analysis of the circumstances of elderly people in the Province of Bolzano showed that, despite the fact that the population of the Alto Adige can be considered relatively "young" in comparison with other Italian regions, the percentage of elderly people was constantly growing.
The Autonomous Province of Bolzano's social, welfare and health policy for elderly people focuses on maintaining elderly people's independence within their normal family environment and preserving their normal social relations.
It is aimed chiefly at elderly people and their needs during the summer, on the assumption that it is during this period, despite the area's social, welfare and health services, that those most in need of assistance are likely to be lonelier and more exposed to risk.

 Bosnia Report - August 1998 - Kosovo is not part of Serbia
Direct representation of Autonomous Provinces at the Federal level would be logical and justified only in the event that the territory of a Socialist Autonomous Province lay outside all Republics, i.e.
