I’LL GIVE YOU SAFE HARBOUR
TRIESTE AND THE JEWISH EMIGRATION
Two videos by Cosimo Miorelli
These videos are among the outputs of a multimedia storytelling project, produced between 2020 and 2021 thanks to funding from the Autonomous Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia.
The project, aimed at telling the story of Jewish emigration through the port of Trieste, was led by the Topolò-Topoluova Association, with the close collaboration of our Museum, the Department of Humanities of the University of Trieste, the Friends of Israel Association of Gorizia and the Židovska općina Rijeka / Jewish Community of Rijeka.
Historian TOMMASO CHIARANDINI selected and assembled the available sources: diaries, testimonies, newspaper articles, archive materials. Then, it was the digital pen of the internationally renowned illustrator and live painter COSIMO MIORELLI who gave life to five live shows during the summer of 2021, in Topolò, Gorizia, Trieste and Rijeka, accompanied by the music of DAVIDE CASALI and MANUEL FIGHELI and the voices of ROBERTA COLACINO and MAURIZIO ZACCHIGNA.
