PLEASE NOTE: the Notice of Default document was written in 2013; since then, the Free Trieste Movement’s researches revealed many more aspects of the question of the Free Territory of Trieste, especially about the role of Region Friuli Venezia Giulia, European Treaties, and NATO’s role in granting military protection to the present-day Free Territory of Trieste.
In 2016, the Law Commission of the I.P.R. F.T.T. – International Provisional Representative of the Free Territory of Trieste has published an expertise that describes the status of the present-day FTT and of its international Free Port precisely and accurately. Read the document HERE
One year later, in 2017, the Law Commission released a second expertise regarding the Italian legislation that ratifies and enforces the legal obligations of both the Italian State and the Italian Government respect to the present-day Free Territory of Trieste and the related obligations respect to all other States and the United Nations.

The citizens of the Free Territory of Trieste put the Italian Government in default
for breach of the international mandate of temporary civil administration (special trusteeship) over the Free Territory of Trieste, entrusted to the Italian Government
On June 18th, 2013 in the personal and collettive interest of the citizens of the Free Territory of Trieste, the Free Trieste Movement presented the Italian Government a Notice of default. The document is about the Italian Government’s second role: that of provisional civil Government of the FTT. The source of this role is a special trusteeship mandate, the Memorandum of Understanding regarding the Free Territory of Trieste (signed in London on 5 October 1954).
The Italian Government is charged with committing, from 1954 to 2013, during the exercise of this mandate, continuing and increasing violations of the obligations and purposes established with that mandate, as well as of the individua and collegial rights of the citizens of the State it administers under the same mandate, in order to take control of it by illegal and deceptive means, at the advantage of the Italian State, which borders with it. This behaviour causes unfair and severe moral and material damages both to the people of the administered State and to the international Community, for its rights to use the Free Port of Trieste without discriminations.
The formal notice of default, documented with evidences of the violations committed by the provisional administering authorities, is extended as an international complaint to the UN Security Council as well as to all UN Member States, to all signatories of the 1947 Treaty of Peace with Italy, to the European Parliament, and to the European Commission.
As notice of default, the act was also notified to local administering bodies of the Italian Government and of the Italian State that act in the Free Territory of Trieste for their liabilities in both individual and collective violations of rights.
All violations were committed gradually, one after another, but always with the same system to either force of to hide the violation of the mandate with hammering political operations and repressing democratic dissent, as well as by providing unjustified, massive funds, both public money and by secret means, to parties, organizations representatives, propaganda and to media that promote Neo-fascism and the Italian nationalism of border areas as fanatic supporters (from both the right and the left wing) of Italian sovereignty over Trieste and of irredentist claims over all the territories ceded by Italy under the 1947 Treaty of Peace.
This is how Trieste was manipulated and handed over to a decaying local political establishment, selected on the base of nationalism, and involved in the well known systems of corruption of the Italian political system.
