- Nel cuore dell'inverno "Si viene qui con uno spirito raccolto, diverso da quello delle stagioni più calde. L’attenzione è maggiore e anche il rispetto.
La natura pare dirti di attendere, di non sforzarti ad andare più in là, di osservare e contemplare già con pochi passi.
È un regno di elementi che dormono, di rari animali che si avventurano all’aperto, di sentieri coperti di strati di bianco, di cascate ghiacciate e acque ancor più cristalline.
Il respiro si addensa, come le nuvole verso la fine della valle che appare ancora più remota che in estate.
I passi si fanno profondi nella neve.
Presto, le tracce saranno ricoperte.
Non rimarrà nulla, se non quella pace fredda e candida che può esserci solo ora, nel cuore dell’inverno." Un racconto bianco di neve, delicato di vapori e silenzioso d'inverno che puoi leggere nel profilo di @acquadolomia.

- Mitsugu: “I have quite a long story with Trieste, where I have been living since 2006. That makes it more than one third of my life and I begin to be confused if I’m more Japanese or Triestin. The first time I came to Trieste I fell instantly in love both with its beautiful sea that you can actually touch with your hands despite being in the city center, and the Carso rocks that protect the city from behind. The landscape reminds me of the city of Kobe where I grew up. I studied at the conservatory of Trieste and now I do quite a lot of concerts as a freelance double bassist. If you see an Asian guy carrying his gigantic instrument around Trieste, he will most likely be me. Imagine carrying a double bass on a Bora day… I can tell you it’s a one-and-only experience!
Coffee and reading are my other passions, so Trieste is a perfect match for me. I did my meticulous research about bars, cafés and other places where to enjoy reading, and one of my favorite spots is above a cliff near the Monte Grisa church, as you can see in the picture. When you are tired of reading, just look up from your book, and you will see the bright sea and the city of Trieste spreading above it!”

- Sometimes all you need is bright headwear and a lively chitchat with a friend to make any day brighter. How’s this Monday treating you?

- Sofia: "I was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and worked in New York for the last 4 years. However, after more than eight years in the financial sector, I was ready for a change. In one of my work travels to Mexico I met my Mexican boyfriend who was sitting right next to me on the plane back from Mexico to New York city. After one year of his weekly commute from California to NY to visit me, we decided to take some months off and travel to Costa Rica, South East Asia, and Europe. One of our destinations was Italy, where we did a month road-trip from Milan down to Sicily and back up- all in all 6,000 km by car. The last town we visited was Trieste and we instantly fell in love. I knew I had arrived to the city where I wanted to live. As an Argentinian with Italian family, Italy feels like home to me. We went back to Mexico and Argentina to finish our sabbatical and in January 2019 we moved to Trieste. I am looking forward to starting this new life project in Italy, learning Italian, drinking good coffee and one of the best wines you can ask for."

- Elizabeth: “ I am American and I have lived in Trieste for two and a half years now. I met my English husband in Rome when I was singing in an operetta. After a couple of years of being in a long distance relationship he moved to New York City where I was living at the time, with the promise that someday we’d come back to Italy. We wanted to live in a different city than we had before so we started looking around at other places. When an Italian pianist friend whom we met in New York told us about the lovely city of Trieste, I said, “But where is that?” We came for a brief visit in the summer of 2015 because I was in Pesaro studying at the Rossini Opera Festival Academia Rossiniana and Trieste was (in a very roundabout sense) on our way to Milan from where we had our tickets back to New York. We spent two absolutely wonderful days here in Trieste and decided we would come back for a bit more time. We returned at Christmas and I think it was the beautiful lights in Piazza Unità that sealed our fate. We moved to Trieste six months later and we’ve been using bora as an excuse to frequent cafes and drink capo in b(s) ever since.”

- Kira:”I’m a certified counseling psychologist with a PhD in neuroscience and cognitive sciences. I specialize in mind, body health, mindful life skills for living, dying and… everything in-between. I was born in Italy but I’ve been traveling extensively since I was a child. Thanks to that I have exceptional friends everywhere in the world! I lived and worked as a stress management counselor for many years in the USA, North Carolina, where I got my Southern accent😊. We moved back to Italy a few years ago and after a short stint in Belluno, we landed here in Trieste, the town where I was born. In Trieste I run a private counseling practice, teach at the Department of Medicine and am a part of a multidisciplinary team at the cardiovascular center for advanced heart failure clinic. I’m married to Piero, a smart and kind engineer, and we have two children. One of them, Steven, left us too early; this excruciatingly painful loss has given me an even deeper sense of gratitude for life and a genuine wish to empower people to live their own lives to the fullest, and to be thankful, mindful and happy.”

- Rebecca: “My visit trip to Italy was a surprise trip to Venice back in 2012. We had an amazing holiday and I couldn’t wait to see more of the country. Then, much to the surprise of my family and friends, I decided to leave the UK with my boyfriend, Rob. This turned into a few years of travelling, living and working in Southeast Asia. In 2015 Rob was offered a job in Trieste so we visited for five days before deciding what to do. In those five days we quickly discovered that Trieste was a place we’d like to live and explore more, so a month later we moved here! After making friends, getting to know the city, the people, and the way of life here we knew Trieste was somewhere we’d like to stay. This year our adventure continued as we got married in Italy, found a permanent home here in the city, and are now bringing up our 4 month old little boy here... who I’m sure will be part Triestino!”

- Nura: “I met Alberto seven years ago while I was doing Erasmus at the University of Sheffield (UK). It was a big year for me as it gave me the courage to travel the world. Before that I had never left Barcelona for more than a few days. Three years after I moved to Trieste and last year we had our first baby and got married. At the beginning Trieste seemed too calm after a big and joyous city like Barcelona, but now I love it for the quality of life. And now I’m here living my dreams in this beautiful (but very windy!) city of Trieste”

- Hassan: “When I first came to Italy in 2015, from Beirut, Lebanon, I always imagined myself living in Milano or Torino. After my university studies in Pavia were over and I started working in Milano the thought of moving, let alone moving to Trieste, wasn’t something that crossed my mind. I always imagined the city as a scary place because of the Bora and couldn’t understand why anyone would want to live here! In May my company offered me to transfer to either Rome or Trieste. Rome would have been the obvious choice for most, but I’m not a fan of big cities so I opted for Trieste. Also, I thought it was just a couple of hours away from Milano, so I would still be able to visit my loved ones in Pavia on the weekends, but the four hour freccia wasn’t something I had considered. A few months forward: I couldn't have made a better choice. It hasn't been a piece of cake- Trieste is not your average italian city, but its uniqueness probably adds to its charm. I'm slowly but steadily getting more comfortable with my new home, and this group of expats makes the experience even more pleasant!”
