    Field trips: Trieste and Science

    Outdoor guided tours Different locations

    EUPRIO Conference 2020 novelty are the guided excursions that are, for the first time, intended as an essential part of the conference programme. All excursions are in fact focused on the “science communication” main theme and will add some “hands-on” experience to the conference contents.

    EUPRIO Conference 2020 participants can choose among four different tour proposals, plus one-afternoon guided tour - for those who can’t arrive in Trieste as early as Friday October 30 morning, when the excursions will leave for their destinations.

    Departure time for day-long excursions is approximately 9 a.m., while return is expected at 5 p.m. All long-day excursions will provide a take-away lunch for each participant. Departure time for half a day trips is 1 p.m.. There are also 2 options for walking tours in the city of Trieste.

    1. The Carso Plateau: Elettra Sincrotrone, Giant Cave, OGS National Institute of Oceanography and Applied Geophysics
    2. The Coast: Miramare, ICTP
    3. Natural Reserve: Isola della Cona, Val Cavanata
    4. Archaeological Heritage: Aquileia archaeological sites and the National Archeological Museum
    5. The Old Port of Trieste
    6. Scientific Guided City Tour of Trieste

      Carso Plateau: Elettra Sincrotrone, Giant Cave, OGS National Institute of Oceanography and Applied Geophysics

      Trieste, the 2020 European City of Science, is a renowned international science system. The excursion is the occasion to visit some of the research facilities located in the Triestin Karst.

      The trip will take visitors to the National Institute for Oceanography and Experimental Geophysics, OGS, where they will be greeted by local scientist who will deliver a divulgative speech on OGS most important research lines. Participants then will be guided through the nearby Grotta Gigante (Giant Cave), one of the largest tourist cave in the world, produced by the geological phenomenon known as Carsism (which takes its name directly from the Karst). In the cave is located some scientific instrumentation belonging to OGS, some of which also of historical interest.

      The second destination of this excursion is the synchrotron ring Elettra Sincrotrone: visitors will be guided by researchers through some of its most interesting facilities. Scientists will illustrate how the “light” emitted by the ring is used in scientific research and will give some examples of most recent findings.

    • 13:00 - 17:00

      Coast: Miramare, ICTP

      This is a trip to the enchanted Castello di Miramare, just a few-minutes bus ride from the city center. The castle was built on the will (and plans) of the Archduke Maximilian of Habsburg, the younger brother of the Emperor Franz Joseph. Maximilian spent just a short time in the premises of the castle with his wife Charlotte of Belgium, before becoming the Emperor of Mexico and, sadly, being executed by Mexican revolutionary forces. Maximilian is a much-loved figure in Trieste.

      The excursion is an occasion to visit the castle’s interiors and the lush and romantic park, full of exotic vegetal species (many of which chosen by Maximilian himself). The castle furniture and decorations have been designed on the basis of the interiors of the SMS Novara, the sail frigate which Maximilian chose for the Novara expedition, a scientific exploration trip around the world which took place between 1857 and 1859. Not many people know that Maximilian was deeply interested in naturalistic sciences, and was an amateur entomologist himself.

      Participants to this excursion will visit the temporary exhibition “Massimiliano e la scienza” (Maximilian and science) which will be on display in the “Castelletto”(the small castle), an eighteenth century building in the park of Miramare (which has been Maximilian and Charlotte’s temporary mansion while the castle was being built).

      Andreina Contessa, the Director of the Museo Nazionale di Miramare will personally greet EUPRIO guests. A short visit to the nearby “Abdus Salam Centre for Theoretical Physics - ICTP” is also scheduled. The Centre is the foundation stone of the entire Trieste science system and was built in the sixties of the twentieth century.

    • 09:00 - 17:00

      Natural Reserve: Isola della Cona, Val Cavanata

      This trip will take participants to the two naturalistic sites of the “Isola della Cona” and “Val cavanata” (approximately 1 hour bus trip). The coastal wet-lands of Friuli Venezia Region are in fact a site of interest due, in particular, to the high concentration of migrant water birds that congregate here. Isola della Cona and Val Cavanata are thus ideal places for bird-watching activities, especially for the presence of some migrating bird species, such as flamingos, different types of herons, ducks, as well as some birds of prey, etc.

      Participants will be guided by local facilitators who will provide detailed naturalistic information about the sites, which are both run in collaboration with the University of Trieste.

    • 09:00 - 17:00

      Archaeological Heritage: Aquileia archaeological sites and the National Archeological Museum

      The tour will take participants to the world renowned archeological sites of Aquileia and the National Archaeological Museum (approximately 1 hour bus trip). Aquileia was an important roman city, founded in 180/181 BC, which remained of central importance for the Roman Empire for centuries (at least until 452 BC, when it was burnt to the ground by Attila, but it still survived in medieval times as well). Its well preserved remains are an international cultural attraction.

      The excursion will offer guided tours to the cathedral and other sites of particular interest, a visit to the Museo archeologico nazionale di Aquileia (which has recently been refurbished), as well as some free time to stroll around the ancient city.

      Marta Novello, the museum director will personally greet EUPRIO 2020 guests. Some archeologists from the University of Trieste, which is in charge of scientific research in the Aquileia site, will give some brief talks on their studies and about ancient Aquileia.

    • 14:00 - 17:00

      Ancient port of Trieste

      The “old port” is an until-recently dismissed part of the city, which was built during the Habsburg domination, when Trieste was the first commercial port of the Empire. It flourished over nearly two centuries, but after War World II was almost entirely abandoned for the Port Nuovo (which lies on the opposite side of the city, and is much more well-suited for modern-day maritime needs).
      This area has recently been given a new life: some of the fine neoclassical eighteenth and nineteenth century buildings have been restored in the occasion of ESOF 2020 and others are being devoted to museal activities as well as to other edutainment uses. Visitors will take a shuttle to the core of Porto Vecchio (a few minutes bus ride) and then will participate to a walking tour. A visit to the “Immaginario scientifico”, the science centre which has been recently moved to this brand-new location, is also scheduled.
