Chapter 2 provides an overview of the forces that led to both the internationalization and the sentimentalization of the Alps in the interwar period. It argues that changes in demography, the appropriation of the mountains on the part of political movements across the political spectrum, the tension between modernity and anti-modernity and also between nationalism and internationalism all played an important role in this context. Moreover, a vast array of cultural productions—ranging from film, to novels (e.g. Heidi), to “typical” alpine products (e.g. fondue), to the news coverage of major events such as the Winter Olympics—contributed to the construction of the Alps as a quintessential site for international cooperation.
