Welcome to the official websiteof Trieste City of Literature

LETS stands for Literature in Trieste. It is an invitation to read its past and write its future. With new projects. Important pages of Italian and world literature were penned in Trieste and the city continues to play a leading role in the world of books. Italian, Slovenian (officially recognized as a minority language), Greek, Serbian, Croatian and Bosnian are spoken here. The sea and port are at the heart of the town’s economy, and science plays a fundamental role as well. Trieste is the city with the highest ratio of scientists to inhabitants in Europe. It invests in culture through a vast network of organizations, projects and activities. Literature is part and parcel of Trieste’s identity. And now is the time to say so out loud. Ready to go?
