During the First World War, Trieste was not just a city “waiting” for Italy. In Trieste not everyone was an irredentist and there were those who were loyal to Austria and to the emperor. It was rather an “unstable” city, caught between two States, with combatants on both sides of the front, bombed from the sky and the sea by the Italian air force and navy, and defended by the Hapsburg forces. It was too close to the theatre of war, yet too far from the supply lines.
The exhibition “14-18 Two Fronts. One City” presents this reinterpretation of the history of the city of Trieste and the multi-faceted experiences of its inhabitants during the First World War and in the early post-war years. Through photographs, exhibits, objects and documents from a number of private and municipal collections—Civic Museums of History and Art, Attilio Hortis Civic Library, the Diego de Henriquez Museum of War for Peace, the General Archive—the exhibition aims at presenting the history of Trieste and its inhabitants between 1914 and 1918.
