Dubrovnik: Civitas et Acta Consiliorum, Visualizing Development of Late Medieval Urban Fabric

HRZZ project

The aim of the DUCAC project is to establish an international, Croatian-Italian group of urban history researchers that would participate in the work, research and discussions within the international community of humanities and social sciences. The project's main goal is to systematically investigate the unpublished 15th century archival records of Dubrovnik's three governing bodies (Great Council, Minor council and the Senate) in order to select, gather, interpret and publish data concerning urban spaces and buildings and to examine the relationships between Councils’ deliberations and the urban development. The results would be discussed within the comparative perspective regarding the similar topics of other European towns as well as disseminated within scientific community and general public. These objectives would be established using new digital technologies for the humanities – HGIS interactive database and 3D visual presentations of the related processes.
