Abstract: The author investigates in this paper the diglossic situation in today's South Tyrol, the mountainous region belonging to Italy. In the course of historic vicissitudes such as two World Wars, native German speakers had to cope with resentment from their fellow-countrymen. nowadays the Italian government intends to establish a diglossic German-Italian status quo in this region, thus urging either native speaker of the two languages involved to thoroughly learn and master the other one's, which is particularly required when applying as a civil servant. The fact that the German speaking community succeeded and still succeeds in asserting itself is illustrated by Giles' so-called 'Vitality Model'.
