Did you know that there is a bathing establishment in Trieste which is divided in half by a wall running all the way to the sea, separating a section dedicated exclusively to women and one dedicated exclusively to men? It is called the Pedocìn, and is the undisputed protagonist of “The Last Resort”, a docufilm by Thanos Anastopoulos and Davide Del Degan, the former was born in Greece and now living in Trieste, the latter originally from the city.
The only reality of its kind in existence is the backdrop to the film which was shot entirely in a border town, where walls, attempts to divide people, and migrations are not a novelty, but a historical reality to which every citizen of Trieste is accustomed.
