The chroniclers, born 1903-1942, come from different backgrounds, their life paths are selected examples, they are pursued from early childhood to adulthood.
The "residents" of the virtual house tell of intense personal experiences, historical events, unforgettable events and their ancestors. They can share their thoughts about identity, life in the EU, present, future, ... and the Tyrolean national hero Andreas Hofer.

They are a window into the past, sustained by the vision of a new form of narrative and culture in the Internet portal "virtual house" made available in an innovative way:
