Abstract
The three Slovene coastal towns explored in the research project exeprienced the exodus of Italian population after 1945 and especially between 1953-1955. Towns were drastically depopulated and later repopulated in subsequent immigration waves, beginning primarily with rural Istrians (particularly from the immediate hinterland), then with population from peripheral regions of Slovenia and, last, with immigrants from southern republics of the Second Yugoslavia. Exodus and new immigrations, instauration of revolutionary social order, industrialisation and new town-planning interventions were reasons for disrupting the continuity of these towns and transforming them into multiethnic and multicultural agglomerates of mostly non-urbanites. The basic assumption is that current difficulties in establishing identities of the three towns are significantly generated by dramatic changes mentionned above. Local and state policies were not able to adequately respond to those problems, furthermore, research into these issues was not carried out (a significant reason of its absence was that the ''''population switch'''' in coastal towns was erased from the collective memory for decades).
