Trieste is one of the most beautiful – and unsung, according to Lonely Planet – cities in the world. A Central European city, where you will breathe a multicultural atmosphere, which will charm you with historic cafés, art, heterogeneous architecture and enchanting sea. «The Triestini embrace life with a passion that is palpable and infectious», says The Telegraph. You can discover it on Turismo FVG, the site of the tourism promotion agency of Friuli Venezia Giulia. State of the Net takes place at Porto Vecchio’s Molo IV (Pier 4), on the shores of the city centre.
