This event puts together the story of a Muslim boy’s disappearance in late 18th century Trieste (David Do Paço) with that of the ideas of some 19th-century Triestine archeologists, antiquarians and historians (Salvatore Pappalardo) in order to explore the emergence of Trieste as a multiethnic imperial port and a carrier of a presumably distinctive Phoenician-Mediterranean heritage. This was a virtual event held on October 1, 2021.
The event is part of the Italian and Mediterranean Colloquium series, sponsored by the European Institute & the Department of Italian.
