Trieste, the city that embraces the sea or, rather, that welcomes the sea in the house. Starting from Piazza Unità, among the most beautiful and extensive in the world among those that overlook the water salty.
Trieste serves as a bridge between Western Europe and south-central, mixing Mediterranean and European characters. It is an important railway and maritime transport. Its port, located in the heart of the European continent, was the main maritime outlet of the Hapsburg Empire. Today it is a hub for international trade flows between the land-sea markets of Central and Eastern Europe and Asia.
The city is located in the far north-east Italian, near the border with Slovenia, in the northernmost part of the Northern Adriatic and facing the bay. The town is mainly occupied by a hillside that becomes a mountain village also in the surrounding areas and is located at the foot of an imposing escarpment that comes down abruptly from the plateau of the Carso to the sea. The Karst mountain, close to the city, reach an altitude of 458 meters above sea level. The town of Trieste is divided into several climatic zones depending on the distance from the sea or the altitude.
Below the city roads flowing rivers that originate from the plateau. Free time to slide open, since the city has developed, starting from the second half of the eighteenth century, were channeled into appropriate piping and still travel the underground of today's Via Carducci (formerly by the River, in fact), via Battisti (formerly Lane Stadion), Viale XX Settembre (ex Aqueduct Avenue), via the Seven fountains or square between Rivi. To the south of the city runs the Rio Ospo that marks the geographical border with Istria. Moreover, the current area of ??the city between the railway station, the sea, "Via Carducci" and Piazza della Borsa, the Theresian, was built in the eighteenth century after the burial of the above salt by order of Empress Maria Theresa of Austria .
The Gulf of Trieste, the wind blows Bora, whose direction is that of a typical E-NE. In Venezia Giulia, wind, due to the large temperature differences that develop between the Carso plateau, much colder, and the coast, noticeably warmer, it greatly strengthens, becoming furious and turbulent, with gusts that may exceed the threshold of 150-160 km / h.
Trieste, North East Italy
In 1719 it became a free port and, as the only outlet to the Adriatic Sea of the Austrian Empire, Trieste was the subject of investment and developed a lot, going from 3,000 inhabitants of early eighteenth-century to more than 200,000 at the beginning of the twentieth century and becoming, in 1867, the capital the region of the so-called "Adriatic Coast" of the empire (the Adriatisches Küstenland).
During this time he was born and prospered a new merchant bourgeoisie enriched thanks to the maritime trade. The city consolidated a particular urban physiognomy which partly characterizes it today and it is very effective for those who visit for the first time. Thanks to its privileged status Cisleithania only commercial port and the first port of Austria-Hungary, Trieste became a highly cosmopolitan city, multi-lingual and multi-religious, as shown by the census of the town of December 31, 1910, almost two-thirds of the population (64, 7%) was Italian-speaking-more than half of the urban population resident (51.8%) to which was added Italians including the foreign community (12.9%) - 24.8% was in the Slovene language, 5.2% of German, while there were many smaller communities (Serbs, Croats, Armenians, Jews, Greeks, Hungarians, British or Swiss). In the eighteenth century the town dialect of Trieste (northern idiom of Venetian type) replaced the Tergestina, the ancient local dialect type rhaeto-romance.
The Trieste, also spoken by writers and philosophers, still continues to be the language most widely used in the family and in many social contexts informal and sometimes formal, joining in a situation of diglossia, Italian, language and administrative main vehicle of communication in the relationship of a public nature.
