In mid-1950s, the Piazza Ponterosso in central Trieste became a favourite shopping destination for the citizens of Yugoslavia. During the 70s and 80s the myth was symbolized by blue jeans. Millions of Slavs came across the border at least once or twice a year until the war in the Balkans brought this era of Trieste’s prosperity to an end. The stories and testimonies from both sides of the border recall the economics and politics of those flourishing years.
