She was politically active in the ranks of the South Tyrolean People's Party , which she represented for four legislative periods between 1973 and 1993 in the South Tyrolean state parliament and thus also in the Trentino-South Tyrol regional council . Bertolini was first elected in 1973; after she had to give up her seat in 1974 in favor of Franz Demetz in the meantime, she was able to move into the state parliament and regional council a second time in the same legislative period in 1976 for Hugo Gamper because of his candidacy in the parliamentary elections. In 1978 she successfully defended her mandate, but in the 1983 and 1988 elections she was initially excluded as the first non-elected on her list. However, in both cases she was able to move up for retired MPs; she replaced Hans Rubner in 1987 and Rosa Franzelin-Werth in 1992 .
