TRIESTE  

Trieste, the main town of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, faces the gulf with the same name, and for its past and recent history, stands as a symbol of Italian vicissitudes.
Today, it has found its role as a blooming commercial and touristic port, at the foot of the Carso, sheltered by the borders of Slovenia. The commercial and industrial activities are notable and linked to the presence of the port – an important access point for traffic heading to Austria. It’s also a centre for sport activities, linked in particular to nautical sports, including the renowned “Barcolana,” which is held annually at the end of summer.

Piazza dell’Unità d’Italia is the heart of City life and was also the scene of great historical-political moments in which the City was protagonist: for example, the immense manifestation of 26th October 1954 to celebrate the annexing to Italy. Its look today, sees a structure dating back to the end of the 1800’s and which remembers the style and austere look characteristic of Viennese urbanism.
Testimony of the oldest history of Trieste are preserved in the Via del Teatro Romano..
