Photographer's Note

Part of the abandoned Old Port of Trieste, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy.

The Porto Vecchio di Trieste (known as the New Port when it was developed in the latter half of the 19th century) covers an area of 67 hectares, with more than a million cubic metres of warehouses and buildings, many of great value, and is one of the most important examples of maritime industrial archaeology in the Mediterranean. Accordingly, the area is in the process of piecemeal regeneration, though from what I saw, progress is pretty slow, and the majority of the buildings are still as you see in this image. Good for photographers and pigeons, but not much else. Several "Master Plans" have been and gone, and while there is a museum in one corner of the complex, most of the site is still in a state of picturesque decay.
