Arnold Tribus

Arnold Tribus (born September 30, 1952 in Tscherms ) is a German-speaking Italian journalist and former politician from South Tyrol .


Tribus grew up in Gargazon . During his school days he was politically influenced by his philosophy teacher Alexander Langer and in the 1970s he began to get involved with the libertarian-liberal and secular Partito Radicale . For some time he worked as a middle school teacher, but was fired because he was denied language group membership. From 1982 to 1985 he represented the Neue Linke / Nuova Sinistra in the Bolzano municipal council. In 1985 Tribus moved up for the deceased Andreina Ardizzone Emeri as - next to Alexander Langer - the second member of the alternative list for the other South Tyrol in the South Tyrolean state parliament and thus at the same time the regional council Trentino-South Tyrol . In the state elections of 1988 he was re-elected for the now renamed Green Alternative List , but in 1993 he was defeated - this time the eco-social spectrum entered under the name of Greens - the party-internal competition of Cristina Kury and Alessandra Zendron .

Since 1997 Tribus, who also ran a gallery in Bozen for several years , has published the Neue Südtiroler Tageszeitung , in which he publishes glosses several times a week .
