About Trieste

Trieste is located in the north of Italy, 100 km east from Venice, close to the border with Slovenia. Trieste faces a beautiful gulf bearing the same name, where the sea is often framed by a rocky coastline and high cliffs. Trieste is a medium size town (ca. 220,000 inhabitants), capital of the Friuli-Venezia-Giulia region. As a gateway to Eastern Europe, the town has a close relationship to Middle Europa, of which it is an important cultural centre. Trieste has a growing economic, commercial and political role, taking advantage of its geographical location.

The town hosts numerous research centres: the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA-ISAS), the International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB), the AREA Science Park and many others.
