A beautiful mural by artist Gabriele Bonato has appeared in Servola, Trieste this past week. It commemorates TV presenter and journalist Nadia Toffa, who died last year, and symbolizes the rebirth of Servola, a district that was deeply affected by fumes from Trieste’s recently closed ironworks.

The ironworks feature prominently in the mural, which is part of the Chromopolis Project.

Nadia Toffa was involved in inquiries that helped to draw attention to the ironworks and its impact on the community in Servola.

I moved here from London six years ago and instantly fell in love with it, with the possible exception of the Bora windstorms. I’m currently revising my first novel, while working as an editor of scientific journal papers. I draw the cartoons in the Humor & Cartoons section of In Trieste. Drawing cartoons started as a way of expressing myself with few words, helpful for me as between writing and editing, words are pretty much my world!”
