A Man From The Future
This exhibition was born as an idea of the Serbian Youth Cultural Association (Associazione Culturale Giovanile Serba - ACGS). It was created in collaboration with the Nikola Tesla Museum in Belgrade, in co-organization with the Municipality of Trieste and promoted by the Serbian Orthodox Religious Community of Trieste and by the Consulate General of the Republic of Serbia in Trieste.
The technical-scientific exhibition, which is conceived as a one-of-a-kind project, aims to show the life and work of the great Serbian genius, one of the greatest inventors of the twentieth century.
In honor of Tesla, the great inventor and scientist, this exhibition will very symbolically be held in Trieste - the "City of Science". This is precisely where one can feel a reflection of the multicultural spirit and the atmosphere that was also a characteristic mark of the time and places in which Tesla lived and created.
Exhibition period: 18th September - 10th October 2021
Address: Magazzino 26, Porto Vecchio, Trieste
The exhibition includes a display of various installations in the form of working models of Tesla's inventions, along with panels and digital content (archival footage, audio recordings and multimedia presentations).
The organization offers guided tours which consist of detailed explanations and experiments of the different models.

The Serbian Youth Cultural Association (Associazione Culturale Giovanile Serba - ACGS) from Trieste was founded on September 18th, 2017, with the aim to promote culture, integration, and education among young people from the Serbian community, and wider.
The association strives to establish innovation processes, intending to plan and implement cultural initiatives, aimed not only at the growth of territorial competitiveness and progress, but also on forms of social cohesion and inclusion at the local level.
The Nikola Tesla Museum in Belgrade was founded in 1952, and in 1955 it was opened to the public. It contains Tesla’s legacy that counts more than 200.000 personal objects, documents, writings, drawings and patents. The funerary urn with the ashes of Nikola Tesla was transferred to the Museum in 1957, and has remained there since.
In 2003, UNESCO included Tesla’s archive in the Memory of the World Register, as part of the documentary heritage of mankind, which represents
the highest form of protection of a cultural property.
In addition to museological activities within the institution, the Nikola Tesla Museum has been organizing guest exhibitions around the world for many years with great success. Only in 2018, 2019 and 2020, exhibitions were organized in China, Japan, Cyprus, Greece and Italy, with a significant number of visitors and public response.
In this regard, the museum has developed a professional team whose main task is to set up an exhibition and train the staff of the host organizers to guide visitors through the exhibition and handle working models.
