Nationalists Who Feared the Nation

This chapter examines Niccolò Tommaseo's influence on Trieste, where his publications, affiliations, and correspondence held sway over a circle of journalists, poets, and artists headed by Francesco Dall'Ongaro and Pacifico Valussi. Entranced by Tommaseo's ideas, Dall'Ongaro and Valussi attempted to spread his message of Adriatic multi-nationalism by reformulating Trieste's position in Europe. Their efforts were not always successful. Sometimes in their writings long-inbred stereotypes against Slavic-speakers came to the fore, causing Tommaseo to despair and pull back from further collaboration. At other times, they moved well beyond Tommaseo's vision for how a European “brotherhood of nations” could thrive. The chapter considers how Dall'Ongaro and Valussi remodeled Trieste's municipal myth into a much grander project, one that placed Trieste at the center of an Adriatic multi-national world.

Keywords:   Adriatic multi-nationalism, Niccolò Tommaseo, Dall'Ongaro, Pacifico Valussi, Trieste, nationhood
