The golden age of Fiume: Urban and Maritime Expansion in the "Dualist" Period (1872-1914) - There is no better symbol of the strivings of Fiume’s cosmopolitan ruling class than the waterfront in the so-called dualistic period (1872-1914), its "Golden Age". Although Fiume started out with a small population and volume of trade, it was able to exploit the opening of new trading routes in the Mediterranean Sea as well as new rail connections. The Suez Canal had been opened and Fiume was chosen as the "port of Hungary". Thus a new harbor was created and linked through new railroad connection to Croatia and Hungary inland. Mayor Ciotta played a leading role in this climate of economic upheaval during his twenty-year tenure. Fiume’s architecture can serve as an index of Fiume’s transition from small to large scale and from a local to an international perspective. We can see this in the waterfront blocks - the residential buildings, the company headquarters, and the public buildings, such as the new grand Opera theatre, all of which epitomize the passage into a new urban panorama.
