The Bora is a wind that blows in a North North-Easterly direction from the mountains into the Gulf of Trieste. It blows intermittently with gusts that can occasionally be very strong.
Trieste and the Bora are inseparable. Trieste is the city of the Bora and the Bora is the wind of Trieste. When it arrives, the city wakes with an intense shudder. Trieste residents love it and endure it, but cannot be without it; when it isn't blowing, they hope for its return. It is an essential element of this city, perhaps because it sparks real and intense emotions that few can ignore.
When Trieste is lashed by the Bora, its beauty is extraordinary.
Writers and poets of every type have dedicated verses and passages to this wind, almost as if it were flesh and blood, but perhaps in reality it is even more, it is the spirit of Trieste.
