The revenge of Trieste's districts
Associated with the image of decay and suburbia for a long time, Borgo San Sergio is now a quiet, residential district of Trieste that has undergone major urban regeneration since the 1990s. Today, the district boasts a bustling playground, a fitness area also available to people with disabilities, and Piazza XXV Aprile, the beating heart of the district.
The square hosts a mural by artist Jan Sedmak, dedicated to Ernesto Nathan Roger, the Triestine architect who designed Borgo San Sergio. Designed to give colour to the neighbourhood and brighten up the local market, the project is part of "Chromopolis - the city of the future", urban creation plan strongly supported by the Municipality of Trieste.
For history lovers, in the small Antiquarium museum in via Donota, which can be visited free of charge, you can admire the remains of the Roman aqueduct in the Rosandra Valley and a villa from the 1st century BC, discovered in the 1970s during the construction of an apartment building.
