Baroque Door

Europe is dotted with castles, each with its own history of families intertwined by political marriages, demagogic expansions and economic wars. Nothing different than what happens today in every country and its people.

Interior of Castello San Giusto, Trieste, Italy

In 1469, the Triestine people engaged in a war against the Venetian Republic by themselves without the support of the Habsburgs, of which Frederick III was the Emperor. Trieste was sacked, looted and people massacred. To punish the people of Trieste, the Emperor ordered the building of this fortress at their own expense.

The fortress is now a very interesting museum to visit.

Dining in the castle

Dinner will be served at 8:00 pm, they are waiting for me. I will make sure I am attired with a nice evening period gown, complete with gloves, a hand fan, silk shoes and a “ridicule”, a small pouch where every woman hides the book of dance arrangements. I will also make sure to raise my right little finger when I bring the glass to my mouth, just to be coquettish.

The Thursday Door Challenge or organized by Dan Antion is growing with interesting posts, make sure you come to visit us and share the fun. Ciao.

    Thank you for this stroll through an Italian castle, Valentina. A first for me 🙂
    The door is impressive and even the dining table, with its skew candles, as if dinner was ceased in a hurry. I wonder what happened? 🙂

    Best wishes,
