THE CONCEPT OF “TRIESTIAN CULTURAL CIRCLE” AND ITS IMPORTANCE FOR THE HISTORY AND LITERATURE OF SERBS (AND SOUTH SLAVS) This paper presents an overview of the history and work of the “Triestine cultural circle” – the international and cosmopolitan group of Italians, South Slavs, Austrians and Germans, that gathered around Niccolò Tommaseo and Giuseppe Mazzini in the first half of the 19th century. One of the main aims of this circle was to acquaint Italians with the history, culture and literature of the South Slavs and Serbs in the 19th century. Inevitably, the work of the circle gave an important feedback that was to be influential on the culture of the South Slavs and the Serbs. Although the group’s name would appear to suggest otherwise its activity was not limited to the city of Trieste. In fact certain historical conditions caused some of the groups participants to move to Venice where they worked during the two-year revolutionary period 1848-1849. In this regard it must be kept in mind that the anti-Austrian struggle, to which the Slavic and Serbian traditions were instrumental, took place in Venice, not in Trieste.

Abstract

THE CONCEPT OF “TRIESTIAN CULTURAL CIRCLE” AND ITS IMPORTANCE FOR THE HISTORY AND LITERATURE OF SERBS (AND SOUTH SLAVS) This paper presents an overview of the history and work of the “Triestine cultural circle” – the international and cosmopolitan group of Italians, South Slavs, Austrians and Germans, that gathered around Niccolò Tommaseo and Giuseppe Mazzini in the first half of the 19th century. One of the main aims of this circle was to acquaint Italians with the history, culture and literature of the South Slavs and Serbs in the 19th century. Inevitably, the work of the circle gave an important feedback that was to be influential on the culture of the South Slavs and the Serbs. Although the group’s name would appear to suggest otherwise its activity was not limited to the city of Trieste. In fact certain historical conditions caused some of the groups participants to move to Venice where they worked during the two-year revolutionary period 1848-1849. In this regard it must be kept in mind that the anti-Austrian struggle, to which the Slavic and Serbian traditions were instrumental, took place in Venice, not in Trieste.
