Trieste becomes a city state

In 1947 Trieste became a city state under the protection of the United Nations as the free teritory of Trieste. During this time, a lot of industry left Trieste because of the uncertain status of the city. As a result, after the final border was established in 1954, the influx of refugees couldn't find jobs, so many of them left for Canada, the US, and Australia
