My book project is located at the crossroads between urban history, the trade diaspora studies, and the sociology of migration. It explores the rapid expansion and diversification of Trieste in the 18th century. It analyzes the association of different actors in the city’s government and the urban and social fabrique. It promotes a global micro-history and explores a diversity of archival collections scattered between Trieste, Vienna and the US.
