Nordic roots, Italian heart.
Trieste is a Central European city. Human-scale, it thrives by the sea, amidst its historic literary cafés, centers of scientific excellence, and tourists drawn by the reserved kindness of its inhabitants, making it a city of 4 and 5-star hospitality, unique in Italy.
The Old Port of Trieste: internationally significant since the 1800s.
Today, it stands as one of the most interesting industrial redevelopment areas in Europe and a historic gateway to the sea for Central and Eastern Europe. It was so innovative that in 1923, Henry Ford chose it to establish his first factory in Italy. After a long period of neglect, the value and potential of its captivating architecture, often chosen as settings by Sergio Leone, Francis Ford Coppola, and Gabriele Salvatores, were rediscovered. A process of revitalizing the entire area began under the protection of Cultural Heritage authorities. Today, the revival of the area’s energy enables Generali Convention Center to connect with creative and cutting-edge networks, museums, art galleries, and startup accelerators, along with the Museum of Scientific Imagination. This creates a well-equipped hub with significant tourist appeal.
