Dalmatia – a Destination of European Grand Tour in 18th and 19th Century

HRZZ project
This multi-disciplinary installation research project funded by the Croatian Science Foundation (Hrvatska zaklada za znanost) brings together a team of theorists in the fields of comparison of literature, architectural history, art history, history and architecture to identify, problematise and integrate the issues related to the phenomenon of the description of space, predominantly that of Dalmatia.

The aim is to provide as integral an insight as possible into the influence of Dalmatia on the development of European Neoclassicism and Romanticism and offer a complex culturological portrayal of the Dalmatia of that period, which will also act as a starting point to establish continuity of thought on context evaluation in the historic urban landscape of Dalmatia.

The research project will be conducted in the period from June 2014 to June 2017.
