The book
This is a guide to the Gulf of Trieste, including a description of the coastline, sounding lines, a list of signals, information concerning ports and landings, etc. Not only this book a useful tool for sailing and yachting, it also includes a detailed and at times amusing account of the events that have gradually shaped this place as we see it today. The northermost gulf in the Adriatic Sea is revealed to us in its intrinsic beauty as seen from the privileged perspective offered by the sea: from the saltpalns at Sicciole to Grado sandbanks; from Istrian masegno to the characteristic stone of Aurisina. Among the merits of this book, it is particularly worth of mention the graphic design, as well as the drawings by Enrico Rizzardi and the photo of the cover by Franco Pace.
