Trieste

Trieste, one of Austria-Hungary's major ports on the Adriatic and one of Italy's principal war aims. The poem by Carducci may reference the Austro-Hungarian submarine base at Pola.
Poem:
Suono di trasvolanti
Ale e tremor di luminose forme
I sereni del ciel deserti empiea
E da le caliganti
Isole al mar che sotto Pola dorme
Una stupenda vision splendea
Carducci
Sounds of ships wheels
Wings and tremors of luminous shapes
The serenity of heaven's deserted empyrean
And from the steam
Of islands at sea that sleep beneath Pola
A magnificent vision shone
