1817-2017

Cool, to reflect on the fact that my Handelschule, in Triest, now in 2017 turns 200.

Tragic, to think that at its first centanary anniversary, on November 4th 2017, many of its students were fighting both at Kobarid or on the river Piave…being them engaged both on Austrian and Italian fronts.

And now, a hundred years later, Europe is still a work in progress, which seems rather to go backwards than forward. Today, the Rome Treaty anniversary. Ursula van den Layen says that populist movements are no longer on the rise. I hope she is right.
