This chapter provides a historical account of the economic forces at work in shaping the life of the mountain peasantry, and discusses the ways in which different forces molded the economic fate of the South Tyrolese and Trentine peasantry. It shows how the development and distribution of these forces affected the Anaunia, the upland valley within which St. Felix and Tret are located. The chapter also examines the Middle Ages; the early modern period; Tyrol and Trentino; the economic margin of the state; changing economic relations; the fascist interlude; and the postwar boom.

Keywords:   mountain peasantry, Trentino, Tyrol, Middle Ages, Anaunia, fascism, economic relations
