Rather than controversy and equivocal attributions of responsibility: Gorizia would need a deep reflection on the reasons for its decline or at least an unhappy historical moment that derives from a set of factors and a very serious fundamental error, that is the lack of collaboration between the institutions that hold the fund and the decisional powers. Comune, Camera di Commercio della Venezia Giulia (formerly Cciaa di Gorizia), Fondazione Carigo, Erpac (formerly Musei Provinciali) are unable to plan a medium and long term city revival program. 

Political motives, parish motives, of a system sticking on the next elections or the next appointments only, always blindly looking at the future. In Gorizia there is a need for a programme built without prejudice also on the future recomposition of the Province decided by the FVG Region; on initiatives such as GECT; on the proposed possibility of making Nova Gorica and Gorizia a unique city of European culture for 2025; the project Collio-UNESCO. 

It is not possible that a the municipality as an institution, of a city of small demographic size like Gorizia, can never manage to make a minimum of lobbying among the various institutions, which collaborate only sporadically but always think about their own good more than the general interest of the city. No wonder that the town misses shots, also because located between two entities, Friuli and Trieste, which when it comes to defending their interests do not look in the face of anyone, even less so in Gorizia.
