    The Great War in the Adriatic

    Exhibition

    The exhibition "The Great War in the Adriatic", usually located at the Gallerion Museum in Cittanova, now also present in the halls of the Brtonigla Museum.

    At the official headquarters of the Gallerion Museum, he exhibited the exhibition about the birth and development of the Austro-Hungarian Navy until the beginning of the First World War, while in the Brtonigla Town Museum with 180 photographic panels and numerous original finds, for the first time in history will be presented in chronological order the naval war in the Adriatic Sea.

    It could have all ended up diff erently. The tourist season of 1914 had been the best until then. Economy was bursting.

    Everyone expected an improvement in the living standards of the lowest social classes in the Monarchy. Instead, the worst possible option, the war, was chosen. The character of the confl ict is well described by its name – the Great War. It lasted four years and left behind 17 million dead and more than 20 million injured without reaching any of the goals set. It happened what nobody among those who had begun it expected. Four big empires have collapsed; the German, the Astro-Hungarian, the Russian and the Turkish. They dissolved into a number of new national states. Some of them were unsustainable geopolitical entities such as newly formed Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, predecessor of recently dissolved Yugoslavia that also ended its existence with a war.

    This exhibition aims to present, for the fi rst time in Europe, the Great War at sea in all its aspects. Through this exhibition we are trying to faithfully convey to the public this immanent tragedy through 300 panels and 300 naval models as well as with numerous original objects and documents. The exhibition will be set up at three locations in Cittanova and Brtonigla.

    Naval operations in the Mediterranean and in the Adriatic, despite the preponderance of the Triple Entente fl eet, have been conducted almost until the end of the confl ict. The Adriatic coast remained free of confl ict and has been spared from military invasion until the entry of the Italian troops after the armistice. Through the whole war, the Imperial and Royal Navy provided, in spite of all the diff iculties, including the disobedience and rebellion of sailors due to the poor living conditions, social abandonment and national disengagement, a reliable defence of the coast and off ered support to own forces at the South Eastern and on South Western theatre of war. After the dissolution of the Empire, its Navy virtually disappeared, while its fellow citizens become citizens of new state entities.

    Eventually, these geopolitical, unhappy and unjust divisions of nations, new frontiers and new spheres of interest, led to a new, even greater tragedy: the Second World War.

    The tradition of the Austro-Hungarian navy has been in some forms preserved in a newly formed Navy of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats then passed on through successor Yugoslavia and then eventually to its successor states. While the golden years of the Austrian presence at the sea ended in 1918, its exceptionally rich heritage has survived to this day and can be observed in various ports and port buildings, in high quality shipbuilding, maritime training, nomenclature (especially in the navy), tourism and cultural heritage (e.g. the fortification system in Pula). Ports such as Trieste, Pula and Rijeka have developed during the Austria-Hungarian period, and much of modern coastal infrastructure was built during that time. Numerous Adriatic lighthouses, these guardians and caretakers of the seaside, sailors’ friends along our coasts and islands, are particularly solemn and mystical witnesses of that era of great captains, sailors and ships, as well as of the glorious navy.

    Taking into account all these circumstances, our desire and our main aim is to set up an International Naval Museum to present and preserve this rich heritage. We believe that only multinational and multi-ethnic representation and interpretation of the past events can provide solid foundation on which we can build our future.

    Tadej Vaukman: Dick Skinners

    Photo exhibition

    The artist and photographer Tadej Vaukman will showcase his works from the Dick Skinners series which documents the scenes from his intimate life and everyday surroundings. These rough and non-idealised images reflect the nihilism of the protagonists, the artist\'s friends, which is the consequence of the resistance against the conventions and expectations of dominant society.

    The Dick Skinners series is a document of a seven-year era of creation and hedonism; in the artist’s world these two are always inevitably intertwined. Together with his colleagues and friends Vaukman travelled extensively, built skate parks and performed concerts in underground clubs across Europe and by doing that he co-created the scene that promotes complete resistance against dominant social norms. The explicit images of wild parties and collective way of life are therefore in complete contrast with the imperatives of contemporary consumerism, celebrity culture, and common desire for success and accumulation of personal material goods. The protagonists of his photographs are modern rebels with the cause who simply don\'t want to comply with the dominant social norms and who consciously reject (seeming) benefits of modern world that most of us unconditionally and uncritically follow.

    Tadej Vaukman (1984) is an independent artist, photographer and publisher. In his predominantly photographic artistic practice he often uses raw documentary and street photography style through which he documents topical phenomena on the social margins and non-idealised images of the world here and now. He has released two photobooks, published by Rostfrei Publishing – Dick Skinners (2015) and Grandheroes (2018). He lives and works in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

The Sunny Winter Trail is a two-day running event that will offer you the spirit of the Mediterranean when winter knocks at your door.

    Fun & Run was designed as a 10 km long recreational race for the first day of the trail for all those wanting to spend time in nature walking or running slowly and is suitable for the whole family. For those youngsters who are just starting on their first running steps, the Kids Trail Run will be a whole new experience that will provide parents with a quiet afternoon with tired children.

    Both the start and finish are in the Portosole Campsite, and the winners will be declared in individual categories and in a stage race that sums up the results achieved over both days. The entry-fees include start packages and a joint lunch for two days, whilst the central venue is the Portosole Campsite.

    Parenzana Trace Walking Tour

    Sport event

    116 years ago, on December 15, 1902, a train covered the route between Buje and Poreč for the first time, driving along the at the time new narrow gauge railroad Parenzana. It was thus that the second section of the railroad previously connecting Trieste and Poreč was put into operation. With the total length of 123 kilometres, it wound through the green istrian landscapes, connecting 33 Istrian settlements.

    Over the last ten years, parts of Parenzana were transformed into a hiking and bicycle trail, unique for the viaducts, tunnels and railway stations preserved along the route, dating back to the time when it was daily thundered through by a small locomotive.

    Commemorating the 116th anniversary of the first train ride between Buje and Poreč, the Tourist Board of the Town of Buje is organizing a hiking campaign from Buje to Grožnjan and back, along the restored route of the Parenzana.

    The start is in front of the old railroad station in Buje at 10 a.m. and trail-side refreshments are ensured for all participants.
