A travelogue covering symbolic locations in Trieste. From Porto Vecchio to the Hotel Balkan, from the Molo Audace to the Sant’Anna cemetery, a ten-stop journey in the city of Italo Svevo and Umberto Saba, an eternal borderland perpetually hovering between a mythified past and a motionless present. The author describes his motorcycle tour through areas unknown to tourists and sometimes even to Trieste residents. He draws on eyewitness accounts and numerous personal portraits to reconstruct the city’s modern history.
