DID YOU KNOW?
Thalia headquarters are appropriately located on one of the most strategic downtown locations of Trieste, capital of the shipping World.
We are just above the Portizza gate, the only still existing Middle Age door passage which connected the city with its port.
Portizza ("the gate" in ancient Italian) was one of the few gateways between the Mediterranean Sea and the town centre. Just outside the Portizza was the Mandracchio, the port area, and the Squero, the shipyard.
Fittingly, Thalia expresses the liaise between Trieste and its world-remowned shipbuilding tradition which is more than 500 years old.
