Press conference held in  Trieste, 2 september 2016:
Verification of the Italian temporary civil administration of the present-day Free Territory & Free Port of Trieste


The International Provisional Representative of the Free Territory of Trieste – I.P.R. F.T.T., established on 16 September 2015 at the Free Trieste Movement’s initiative, is an economic and political-diplomatic Representative Office that acts upon delegation by the citizens and enterprises of the Free Territory and of other States. Currently, it represents more than 20,000 delegations.

During the first 11 months of its activities, this Representative has taken care to develop the historical-legal analyses on the subject and it has started the political-diplomatic activities necessary for accreditation, as well as promoting information campaigns on the international level. A relevant part of these activities must necessarily be kept confidential.

The results are satisfactory, because international attention to the Free Territory, to its financial freedoms, to its international Free Port, and to the pertinent rights of all other States is constantly increasing, making possible to promote increasingly effective political-diplomatic actions.

During June 2016, this Representative stopped with legal actions both the illegal urbanization of the Northern Free Port of Trieste organized by Italian politicians and speculators and the attempt of Italian magistracy to close, without investigations, the complaints presented against them.

The progress of the historical-legal analysis is facilitated by the circumstance that the people responsible for the simulation of Italian sovereignty over the Free Territory of Trieste have consolidated their theses in two administrative judgments, and use them as justifications for all of their abuses. We refer to judgments No. 400/2013 and No. 530/2013 of the Regional Administrative Court for Friuli Venezia Giulia.

The analyses were consolidated at the end of July in expertise No. IV-1 which has confirmed three main circumstances.

First of all, the present-day Free Territory of Trieste consists in the area formerly known as “zone A” with the international Free Port, and it has no territorial disputes with its bordering and neighbor States, because the United Nations have ultimately settled the question of secondary, former “zone B” in 1992.

The second circumstance is, the theses consolidated in the Italian administrative judgments No. 400/2013 and 530/2013 to claim Italian sovereignty over the Free Territory of Trieste were constructed with scandalous falsifications of the instruments of international law, and even of Italy’s own legislation.

The third circumstance is, the simulation of Italian sovereignty over the Free Territory of Trieste is not directly organized by the Italian Government, rather, it derives from local circles that earn parasitic profits from it.

On 22 August 2016, on the bases of the findings of expertise IV-1, this Representative has therefore requested the Italian Government and the President of the Italian Republic urgent verifications of the conduction of the temporary civil administration of the present-day Free Territory of Trieste.

Of this request are also informed the primary administrators, which are the Governments of the United States of America and of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and the Organization of the United Nations, for their role of international guarantor of the Free Territory of Trieste.

While waiting for the needed verifications, to prevent the worsening of the damages, this Representative started to notify to all administrative local bodies an invitation to take note that the theses used to simulate the sovereignty of Italy over the Free Territory of Trieste are false, and inviting them to suspend all the provisions that do erroneously accredit it.

The local administrations that have already received or are about to receive this communication are: the Commissar of the Government and Prefect of Trieste, all judicial bodies, all fiscal agencies and social security bodies, the Municipalities, the Province, the Region, the EZIT that is being liquidated, the Port Authority, and others.

The expertise and the communication to those authorities are being published soon on the website of this Representative ( in the Documents section. This way, both citizens and enterprises can directly refer to the official communications of the I.P.R. F.T.T. to each authority in their own appeals on taxation, and to judicial or to administrative bodies.

The use the contents of the expertise, or parts of its text, however, must be authorized by this Representative, which can also provide all further information and advice needed.

As for short and medium-term political and economic development, this Representative considers that the complete activation of the functions of the Free Territory of Trieste as international Free Port and financial center is increasingly important for the strategies for the liberalization of trades between Europe and the United States of America, as well as with the rest of the world.
