National Hall in Trieste formally back in Slovenian minority's hands

Trieste, 13 July - National Hall, a Slovenian centre in the heart of Trieste, was formally handed over to the Slovenian minority in Italy. A document on its ownership transfer was signed on Monday at an event attended by several ministers as well as the Slovenian and Italian presidents exactly 100 years after the original building was burnt down by Fascists.
