ln this work the author stresses the importance of more thoroughly
iIIuminating and elucidating the term Istrianity as well as the
variants within which it is being interpreted. The interpretation of
Istrianity as the stronger identity amounts to an expression of the
dominating nationalities and is observed through the optics of
government power. As the weaker one, this identity is revealed in
heterogeneity and pluriethnicity and can thus be also defined as
pluriidentity. This second variant or interpretation is being rejected
by the government because it does not allow the unhomogeneity
of the national being toward the existing formula of constituting
National states, forgetting that national feeling represents an
atavism of sorts. National identity interprets Istrianity as affiliation
to one national group, and is therefore not prepared to take into
consideration diversity and rights of the ethnically different, which
causes violence and complete assimilation. Appreciation and
tolerance amongst nationally different subjects and bodies is the
only way to maintain peaceful coexistence without the irrational
fear of losing one's own national integrity. Thus, in the light of this,
Istrianity interpreted as the "weaker" identity or pluriidentity,
appears and is reaffirmed in reality as ethically the stronger one.
