Leipziger Platz, our own version!

Uh? I discovered today sometimes curious about my home town!

The piazza where my highschool – Imperial Accademia di Nautica e Commercio – is still today located, used to have a different name. It is now called Piazza Hortis.

But the Austrians called it Leipziger Platz...and earlier on, the French called it Place de Lutzen…

In the “Paris-Berlin Nachbarschaftsgeschichten” arte.tv movie, it was explained how Berlin copied Paris in the design of its most magnificent piazzas…and then proceeded to rebrand them.

Quarré became Pariser Platz (after the victory on Napoleon and the comeback of the Quadriga), the Oktagon became Leipziger Platz (voilà!) and the Rondell became Place de Belle-Alliance (which is south of Waterloo…entendu? – today that is called Mehringplatz).

Whatever. The most important thing is, that in Trieste the rebechin Siora Rosa is still there – in the Piazza Hortis/Liepzig/Lutzen – and keeps on offering fabulously heavy dishes…9788895575100b
