The Town of Trieste looks out to sea from the eastern shores of the Adriatic; west lies Venice, south Dubrovnik, and behind sits the limestone hinterland of the Karst, a main point of access to Central Europe’s Danuban plan. The Port of Trieste is today the only international free port in Europe since 2017, meaning goods being sent from there can benefit from a series of tax exemptions.
The scope of this article is to outline the presence of a Trieste problem and generally outline its relevance for European politics and culture. It is not enough, however, to provide a complete depiction of each of the problem’s aspects, for which further research is going to be suggested.
