This year’s workshop will be held in the historic center of Trieste, a picturesque port city in north-east Italy. Beautiful and cultured, Trieste is Italy’s most cosmopolitan city. There are still echoes of the glorious Habsburg past that made it “the little Vienna on the sea”, and in its characteristic mixture of languages, people, and religions one easily senses its combined Central European and Mediterranean souls. The city is located on a hillside, overlooking the Adriatic sea and just 10km from the Slovenian border.
The workshop will be held in Trieste’s Chamber of Commerce, a beautiful building in Piazza Della Borsa in the heart of Trieste. The building was used by the Stock Exchange and was built in the 1800s. In 1844 the Stock Exchange activity was transferred to the Tergersteo palace, where it is still today, and the old palace became the headquarters of the Chamber of Commerce.
