Trieste and around

“Beyond the city of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, there is another Trieste. Beyond the literary cafés, beyond Svevo and Joyce’s intellectual friendship, there has always been another city: comfortable, informal, picturesque. Trieste is a southern city, the most southern city in Northern Europe.”

[Mauro Covacich, Italian writer]
