Fallen border – two years after (Gorizia – Nova Gorica)
In the beginning of the week I did a feature reportage on the former border between Slovenia and Italy. It’s popular to say that border between Yugoslavia and Italy was a part of Iron Curtain, although it doesn’t deserve that name especially if you compare it to the border between Austria and Czechoslovakia. Anyhow border is gone, Nova Gorica and Gorizia are one town again and with journalist Toni Dugorepec we did a story on how is it 60 years after it was split between Italy and Yugoslavia and two years after it’s reunited. It’ll be published in Mladina.
PS: How do you like my new theme and bigger photos?
On the border there is a joined city square that half of it is in Slovenia’s Nova Goriza half of it is in Italian Gorica, but it has two different names. Slovenian name for the square is EU square whereas Italian name is Transalpina square.
