A stage open to the stars and the unique Dubrovnik made of stones and light
If the world had several Dubrovniks, only one would be the real one: this true, genuine and unique Dubrovnik made of stones and light. An open palm under the stars, extended to the world. A unique stage on which the past and the future have a common significance, their own creative measures.
Dubrovnik is not only a piece of art, but through the centuries it has been an artist itself. Exposed to influences, yet always itself. Exposed to the winds, yet always constant and firm. On its stone towers and walls the watch is not one of arms but of the idea and the spirit of freedom. Dubrovniks glory comes not of the victories of the sword but of the power of creative thought. Dubrovnik is the city of poets and a poet city.
A city with one face and innumerable mirrors that reflect and multiply it. Dubrovnik is the city of wonders. Born on the shores that are the cradle of mankind. Like Aphrodite it emerged from the rocks of the sea, form Hearclitus fire rhythmically extinguished and rhythmically burning again’’; the Mediterranean is its link with the continents, other civilizations and nations. Incomparable Dubrovnik.
Within its walls the synthesis of the Dalmatian renaissance was born, which set rolling all Slavic literature. The common synthesis of Zadar, Split, Hvar and Dubrovnik has not yet obtained its right place in the world culture, but this place is indisputable.
Dubrovnik represents more than just the past. It is the space and the measure of new ascents.
As an architectural entity, Dubrovnik is a unique stage in the world, open to the sky, mobile and suitable for every kind of literary expression.
As an aesthetic measure, this space gives the literary word an opportunity to express itself freely in all dimensions and to certify its vitality and authenticity, in every encounter and at any moment.
Dubrovnik is an authentic climate of the human spirit. The city made of stones and dreams.
