Organized by Giuseppe Bonaccorso (University of Camerino) and Jasenka Gudelj (University of Zagreb)
October-December 2016
After the treatise of Rapallo (1921), Istra, Rijeka, part of the Kvarner area and Zadar with its archipelago become parts of Italian
kingdom. Moreover, between 1941 and 1943 Italian forces occupied territories of Split and Kotor forming the Governorate of Dalmatia. The
Italian administration of parts of present-day Croatia coincided with the rise and fall of fascism and left visible traces in form of
architectures, projects, texts and exhibitions, analyzed so far in piecemeal fashion by Croatian and Italian researchers. The conference
series, which includes lectures by Croatian, Italian and Swiss researchers, aims to open a more articulate and comprehensive
discussion on the subject, confronting the historiographies often separated by language barrier. The series covers different and evolving
aspect of subject area: interpretations the historical heritage (27 October 2016); urban scale interventions and planning (24 November
2016) and analysis of important buildings in Croatia designed by protagonist of the Italian interwar architectural scene (8 December
