Conference Hall
Civico Museo Revoltella. Galleria d’Arte Moderna
Via A. Diaz 27


Located in the modern heart of the city, this Museum is an important modern art gallery that originated from an institution founded in 1872 by Baron Pasquale Revoltella (1795 – 1869), a wealthy collector known for having been one of the vice-presidents of the Suez Canal Company. He bequeathed his palace and his art collection to the city of Trieste.
By the end of the 19th century the collection included a number of important Italian artists, such as Francesco Hayez, Domenico Morelli, Giacomo Favretto, Urbano Nono and Filippo Palizzi, as well as a good number of foreign artists. In the course of this century the Revoltella Museum has further expanded and has come to include almost all the most significant figures of Italian 20th century art: Casorati, Mario Sironi, Carlo Carrà, Giorgio Morandi, Giorgio De Chirico, Giacomo Manzu’ Marino Marini, Lucio Fontana and Alberto Burri, to name a few. Part of the Museum, furthermore, still maintained the original furniture of Baron Revoltella, and can be visited as well.






Welcome reception:

Civico Museo d’Antichità “J.J. Winckelmann”
Piazza della Cattedrale, 1


The Archaeological Museum of Trieste is located on top of San Giusto hill, next to the Medieval Cathedral and to the Castle of San Giusto, in the city centre, where the Roman city once stood (remains of Roman public buildings can still be seen in the area).
Founded in 1874, its collections include prehistoric and Roman artefacts, as well as 19th-century collections of Egyptian, Cypriot, Greek, Hellenistic and Mayan antiquities. These are hosted in the three-story building of the museum, built in 1842 and once owned by a merchant, and in the two adjacent gardens, one of which is still surrounded on two sides by remains of the 15th century city wall.
The museum was born thanks to the presence of the cenotaph of Johann Joachim Winckelmann, father of archaeology and art history who was murdered in Trieste in 1768. Around this monument, during the 19th century, antiquities from the city and the surroundings were gathered in order to be saved. This originated the institution of the Orto Lapidario (literally, “garden of stones”), which later became the Antiquities Museum.






Farewell dinner (awaiting confirmation):

Yacht Club “Adriaco”
Molo Sartorio, 1


This Yacht Club is one of the oldest in Italy, since it opened in 1903. It is hosted in a building that dates to 1924, which is located on one of the jetties of the old harbour, now in the centre of the city. The activities of the Club are well known to the citizenship, and the building has a banquet hall, usually reserved to members, that overlooks the gulf of Trieste.



Destinations of the conference trip (awaiting confirmation):


The city of Aquileia was one of the most important ones during the late Roman Empire and Late Antiquity. It is one of the Unesco World Heritage Sites, and its archaeological attractions include its National Archaeological Museum, several monuments and remains of the Roman town, the world famous Christian Basilica with its mosaic floors of the 3rd-4th century AD and the Early Christian National Museum.



Duino is watched over by a 14th-century castle standing on a high cliff dropping sheer into the sea, which inspired poets and writers, such as D'Annunzio, Twain and Rilke, to whom is dedicated a charming path overlooking the Adriatic, which leads to Sistiana, where there is a beautiful bay with a small harbour.
The castle, inhabited by the Thurn und Taxis princes, can be visited together with its elegant garden.
In its vicinities there is one of the natural wonders of the region: the Risorgive del Timavo. Timavo is a river that flows underground for a large part of its course, and the Risorgive are the spot where it resurfaces. The fascination of the place is so strong that the Romans made this a worship place and the river a deity. A Medieval church of the 11th century now stands on the Roman remains.
