Who are you and what do you do?
Anna Quinz, Creative Director of the communication office and publishing house franzLAB in Bolzano.
What brings you to Bolzano? What do you like most about it?
I grew up here, lived elsewhere for a long time and came back to stay. Bolzano is simple and yet offers many contrasts: On one hand, I can get to my office in seven minutes from home and shop at the market on the way, and on the other hand, culture and creativity keep the city alive.
What places inspire you in Bolzano?
I like the different souls of this city: the old town with its noble flair, the district around piazza Vittoria with its efficient size and order, the “skyscrapers” in the new town and the almost rural area of Gries. In just a few steps, everything can be different.
Where do you go to unwind?
To the Gries vineyards with a view of the Rosengarten. To the Ritten plateau with the cable car for a walk past summer homes and a Dolomite view. Anywhere where the mountains turn pink at sunset.
