for Trieste

Zeno's Conscience

Italo Svevo
Zeno Cosini is the anti-hero of Italo Svevo's "La coscienza di Zeno". In Trieste, the first-person narrator, who feels ill with his environment, writes down his life story after being advised to do so by his psychoanalyst. In a self-ironic narrative, the protagonist always finds a hilarious side in failing.

When I read Italo Svevo's La coscienza di Zeno for the first time, I immediately knew that I had to go to Trieste! Before I had finished reading it, I was already there.
