Dear Visitors,

Gradonačelnik Grada Dubrovnika Mayor of Dubrovnik

Dragi posjetitelji, dobrodošli u Dubrovnik, Grad ljepote, sklada, materijalnog i duhovnog bogatstva stvaranog stoljećima. Kao gradonačelnik turističke perle Mediterana želim Vam ugodan boravak u Gradu koji je dostignućima svojih pjesnika, književnika, znanstvenika i graditelja duboko utkan u hrvatsku kulturu i baštinu koje su oduvijek svjedočile o njegovoj pripadnosti europskom, uljuđenom i naprednom svijetu. Čast mi je biti na čelu ovakvoga Grada, ali istodobno osjećam i veliku odgovornost za njegov napredak i razvoj koji će učiniti život u njemu ugodnijim i ljepšim, stalnim žiteljima i gostima. U ovom Gradu živi se po mjeri čovjeka. Volio bih da i Vi osjetite tu harmoniju čovjeka i njegovoga djela. U ime Grada Dubrovnika i svoje osobno ime želim Vam dobrodošlicu. Prepustite mu se i uvijek ćete mu se vraćati.

Dobrodošli

Dubrovnik / Welcome

to

Welcome to Dubrovnik, the City of beauty, harmony, and material and spiritual wealth that has been generated for centuries. As the mayor of this tourist pearl of the Mediterranean, I wish you a pleasant stay in the City, which – owing to the achievements of its poets, writers, scientists and architects – has been deeply implanted in the Croatian culture and heritage that have always testified to its belonging to the European, civilized and progressive world. It is an honour to be at the head of such a city. At the same time I feel a great responsibility for its progress and development that will make the lives of its residents and guests more pleasant and beautiful. People in this City live in accordance with high human standards. I would like you to also experience this harmony of man and his accomplishments. In the name of the City of Dubrovnik and in my own name, I wish you welcome to Dubrovnik. Embrace it, and you will always come back.

opiti capuccino na Stradunu i kušati domaće slastice užitak je u Dubrovniku i u prosincu, i u siječnju, i u veljači, jer godišnje brojimo i do dvjesto šezdeset sunčanih dana pa zima u Gradu i nije zima ogrnuta u kaput, već je najčešće okupana suncem. Zima u Dubrovniku je i listanje novog broja časopisa Welcome to Dubrovnik. Ljepotu kamenoga Grada i “zimski đir” stanovnika koji prolaze Stradunom svakoga dana naviknuti na čaroliju koja ih okružuje, u mjesecima kad ga ne preplavljuju mnogobrojni posjetitelji, zabilježio je svojom kamerom Oskarovac i zaljubljenik u naš Grad Jiri Menzel,u pomno biranim kadrovima otkrivajući kamene detalje od čije ljepote zastaje dah. Zadovoljstvo stalnog otkrivanja dubrovačkih priča i zanimljivosti, ljudi i osobnosti koji su obilježili povijest i sadašnjost nudi upravo naš “Welcome” čiji dvadeseti broj s ponosom predstavljamo. Dvadeset brojeva je i deset godina u kojima je “Welcome to Dubrovnik” izgradio svoj image časopisa koji živi s ovim našim i vašim Gradom, čuvajući njegovo nasljeđe, poštujući baštinu i sve slavne pretke koji su ga svojim umijećem gradili i sačuvali. Grad koji je dio svjetskoga kulturnoga nasljeđa UNESCO -a već više od trideset godina, po našem mišljenju, treba i zaslužuje ovakav časopis koji se osmišljava predano i pozorno, stvara i oblikuje istinskom kreativnošću, realizira s ponosom.

Dubrovnik

Prije nego u Vaše ruke dođe posebno izdanje časopisa Welcome, otkrijte sadržaj ovog zimskog broja koji, kao i svaki prethodni, donosi niz zanimljivih priča iz dubrovačke prošlosti i sadašnjosti. Upoznajte se sa životom jednog od briljantnih znanstvenih umova rođenih u Dubrovniku: zanesenjaka, putnika i matematičara Ruđera Boškovića, saznajte koja se dubrovačka „svjetska čuda“ kriju u novootvorenom Prirodoslovnom muzeju, zašto je Festa sv. Vlaha, zaštitnika Grada Dubrovnika, upisana na listu UNESCO-ve zaštićene nematerijalne baštine. Uživajte u pripovijestima o „malim“ ljudima, starim zanatlijama, strancima koji to više u Dubrovniku nisu, ili strancima koji su zaljubljeni u njegovu kamenu ljepotu i koji čeznu za njim kada su u svojim domovima u „dalekom svijetu“. Otkrijte nepoznatu stranu Grada s kojim je lako doživjeti ljubav na prvi pogled!

H

aving a cappuccino in Stradun and savouring local sweet delicacies are the things you can enjoy in Dubrovnik also in December, January and February. Winter doesn’t wear a coat in the City, because we have 260 sunny days a year. In winter you can read the new issue of the Welcome to Dubrovnik magazine too. The beauty of the stone city in the months when it is not crowded with visitors was recorded by the camera of the Oscar-winning director Jiri Menzel. This lover of the City captured the breathtaking stone details and the „winter life“ of local people who walk along Stradun every day, used to the magic which surrounds them. Our Welcome magazine, whose 20th issue we proudly present, offers the pleasure of never-ending revealing the Dubrovnik stories, curiosities and personalities who have marked its past and present.

It took the Welcome to Dubrovnik twenty issues and ten years to build the image of a magazine which breathes with this City, cherishing its legacy and respecting its heritage and all glorious ancestors who have built and preserved it with their art. We believe that, as one of UNESCO World Heritage Sites for more than thirty years, Dubrovnik needs and deserves such a magazine, which has been conceptualised with dedication and attentiveness, created with true inventiveness, and realized with pride. Before you get a copy of the forthcoming special issue of Welcome to Dubrovnik, enjoy the contents of this winter issue which, like all the preceding ones, contains a number of intriguing stories from Dubrovnik’s past and present. Learn about the life of one of brilliant scientific minds born in Dubrovnik, the visionary, traveller and mathematician Ruđer Bošković, find out which Dubrovnik’s „wonders of the world“ are hidden in the newly-opened Natural Science Museum, and why the Festival of St Blaise, the patron of Dubrovnik, was included in UNESCO Intangible Heritage of Humanity List. Enjoy the stories about „ordinary“ people, old tradesmen, the foreigners no longer in Dubrovnik, or about the foreigners in love with its stone beauty who long for it in their faraway homes. Discover the unknown side of the City one easily falls in love with at first sight!

Dvadeset brojeva u deset godina!

iše od 364 naslova, 126700 primjeraka te 60 suradnika, neki su od podataka koji opisuju Naš i Vaš časopis Welcome to Dubrovnik, kojeg smo dosad poslali na gotovo 2000 adresa od Dubrovnika do Sidneya. Sve je počelo tijekom ljeta 2001. kada sam se prvi put susreo s časopisom Welcome to Zagreb Turističke zajednice grada Zagreba. Od tog trenutka smišljao sam način, maštao o mogućnosti pokretanja sličnog dubrovačkog časopisa te uporno nagovarao tadašnju direktoricu gđu. Miloš da me podupre u mojoj nakani. Upornost se isplatila. Na moju veliku radost u proljeće te godine dobio sam zeleno svjetlo za prvi broj. Pomoć sam zatražio od zagrebačkih kolega i njihovog marketiškog partnera Masmedie, a već nakon dva broja cjelokupan posao obavljali smo sami. U Uredničko vijeće okupili smo izuzetno drage ljude, koji su pomagali savjetima i iskustvom pri tematskom osmišljavanju

magazina, i to: Aidu Cvjetković, Tildu Bogdanović (i danas su u Vijeću),Sonju Kise,Asju Skaramuca, Miru Muhoberac, Josipa Ivanovića, Pera Portolana i Vedrana Benića. Već na prvome sastanku dogovorili smo, i teme, i autore prvoga broja. Za stručnu pomoć zamolili smo poznatu dubrovačku novinarku Jelku Tepšić (našu današnju direktoricu) koja je predano obavljala dodijeljenu joj zadaću do sedmoga broja kada ju je naslijedila novinarka Lidija Crnčević. Iako smo svi strahovali kako će kod domaće i strane publike naš “Welcome” biti prihvaćen pokazalo se da za strah nije bilo razloga. Naš prvi broj naišao je na odobravanje svih onih koji su ga imali u ruci, bilo da smo im ga poslali ili su ga dobili u hotelskim sobama, na sajmovima i prezentacijama diljem svijeta, u predstavništvima Hrvatske turističke zajednice ili našim veleposlanstvima. Primili smo brojne pohvale popraćene mišljenjem da je takav časopis već odavno bio potreban, a opća ocjena bila je : odličan!

Twenty issues Dizajneri, fotografi, lektori kao i brojni drugi suradnici mjenjali su se i međusobno nadopunjavali, a stalni suradnici ostali su novinar Nikola Šubić i tiskara ALFA 2, koja je osim broja 11 kvalitetno i na vrijeme tiskala ostale brojeve. Sigurno je i kvaliteta tiska doprinijela da ovaj dvadesetogodišnjak s nepresušnim temama o Gradu jučer , danas i sutra, nađe svoje mjesto pri vrhu ovakvih turističkih edicija u Hrvatskoj što najbolje potvrđuje činjenica da je njegovu kvalitetu prepoznao i Međunarodni žiri INTERSTASA koji mi je 2005. dodijelio DIPLOMU za uređenje prvih deset brojeva. Bio je to poticaj, ne samo meni, nego i svim mojim dragim suradnicima, da svaki sljedeći broj osmislimo kvalitetnije, veseleći se danas slavljeničkom dvadesetom broju.

in ten years!

Međutim, bez Vaše podrške, dragi čitatelji, ne bismo uspjeli! Hvala Vam na vjernosti i podršci. Obećavamo Vam nove uspješnice ispisane prekrasnim stranicama o Gradu koji je “nama sve, a čiji smo mi samo stanovnici” (prema Luko Paljetak). Na taj način građanima Dubrovnika, ali i našim gostima želimo pokloniti priču o našemu Gradu koji je jedinstvena pozornica kulturne baštine čovječanstva. Ponosni smo što smo sudjelovali u stvaranju njegovih prvih dvadeset brojeva, a radosni jer smo uljepšali Vaše životne trenutke dok ste ih čitali. Posebnu zahvalnost dugujemo našim dragim sponzorima koji su od prvog trenutka shvatili opravdanost i cilj našega rada te nas podržavali i poticali.

M

ore than 364 titles, 126700 copies and 60 collaborators are some of the details that describe our and your Welcome to Dubrovnik magazine, which we have sent to almost 2000 addresses from Dubrovnik to Sydney. Everything began in the summer of 2000, when I first met with the Zagreb Tourist Board’s Welcome to Zagreb magazine. From that moment on, I dreamed about the possibility of starting a similar magazine in Dubrovnik, and kept on persuading the then director Mrs. Miloš to support my idea. My persistence paid off. To my immense joy, the following spring I got the green light for the first issue. I asked our Zagreb colleagues and their marketing partner Masmedia for assistance, and already after two issues we were capable of doing the entire work ourselves. We established the Editorial Board which consisted of a number of outstandingly nice people who helped us conceptualize our magazine with their advice and experience. They included Aida Cvjetković, Tilda Bogdanović (they have been the Editorial Board members until this day), Sonja Kise, Asja Skaramuca, Mira Muhoberac, Josip Ivanović, Pero Portolan and Vedran Benić. We determined the topics and authors of our first issue already during our first meeting. We turned to the renowned Dubrovnik journalist Jelka Tepšić (our present-day Director) for expert assistance, and she performed that task with dedication until the seventh issue, when she was succeeded by the journalist Lidija Crnčević. Winter 2010/11

Although all of us were apprehensive of how our Welcome would be accepted by the local and international public, our fear was groundless. Already the first issue was met with the approval of everyone who either received the magazine by mail or found it in their hotel rooms, at different fairs and presentations all over the world, at the Croatian Tourist Board branch offices and at the Croatian embassies. We were widely praised, the readers claimed that they needed such a magazine for a long time, and the general feeling was: well done! A large number of designers, photographers, proofreaders and other collaborators have succeeded and complemented each other, while the permanent collaborators have included the journalist Šubić and the ALFA 2 printing company, which – with the exception of the 11th issue – printed all the issues on time, meeting high standards. The printing quality is also responsible for the fact that this twenty-year-old, with its inexhaustible topics on the City's past, present and future, has been highly ranked among the Croatian tourist publications of the kind. This is best confirmed by the fact that its quality was recognised in 2005 by the INTERSTAS international jury, which awarded our magazine with a DIPLOMA for the editing of the first ten issues. It was an encouragement - not only to me, but to all my precious collaborators - to make top quality concepts for every forthcoming issue, looking forward to its, now anniversary, twentieth issue. However, without your support, dear readers, we wouldn't have succeeded! Thank you for your faithfulness and your support. We promise wonderful new hit issues with articles about the City which is everything to us, who are merely its residents. In this way we wish to present the residents and guests of Dubrovnik with a story of our City, which is a unique stage of the cultural heritage of humanity. We are proud of taking part in the creation of the first twenty issues of Welcome, and happy for enhancing the moments you spent reading them. We owe special gratitude to our dear sponsors, who from the very start understood the justification and goal of our work and gave us their precious support and encouragement.

ubrovnik je zimi Grad koji privlači goste željne drugačijeg ugođaja od onoga koji se nudi u ljetnim gužvama, pod vrelim sunčevim zrakama. Nije dosadan, uvijek je isto lijep i drugačiji. Dubrovnik se zimi može upoznati na intimniji način, kroz običaje i tradiciju koja se slavi na njegovim ulicama i diše u ritmu iskonske biti Grada.

Božić u Gradu Unesco-v grad svjetske baštine, Dubrovnik, u prosinačko blagdansko vrijeme zasjat će čarobnim dekoracijama i iskriti okićen svjećicama stvarajući ugođaj bajkovitog renesansnog grada.U mjesecu darivanja održat će se Božićni sajam, na kojem će se predstaviti tradicijski obrti koji će izložiti svoje rukotvorine. Ugostitelji će nuditi božićne kolačiće i slastice, kuhano vino, bruštulane mjendule (bademe u šećeru), tradicionalne dubrovačke slastice: kontonjatu, mantalu, prikle, hrostule i druge delicije koje se pripremaju za ovo svečarsko vrijeme. Uz zvuk božićnih napjeva Sajam će biti otvoren od blagdana Sv. Nikole do Sveta tri kralja.

ubrovnik in winter is a city which attracts the visitors who wish to experience the atmosphere different from that in the summer characteristic of crowds and hot rays of the sun. Everything but boring, it is equally beautiful, yet different. In winter one can get acquainted with Dubrovnik in a more intimate way, through the customs and tradition which is celebrated in its streets breathing in the rhythm of the City’s primeval essence.

Festa svetoga Vlaha New Year’s Party in Stradun On New Year’s Eve, 31 December, the musicians of Dubrovnik will see the old year out with traditional Dubrovnik carols and a music programme lasting all day, which will be the best possible introduction to the wildest night. Numerous visitors to Dubrovnik will begin the New Year 2011 entertained by Croatian stars. The Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra’s New Year’s concert in Stradun on New Year’s Day will be a special gift to the visitors. The orchestra will perform the most beautiful operatic pieces that will additionally enhance the unforgettable New Year’s fun in Dubrovnik.

Winter 2010/11

Od daleke 972. kad se započinje slaviti dan sv. Vlaha, zaštitnika Grada Dubrovnika posve je posebna, tipična, dubrovačka Festa. Uz otvaranje Feste na Gospu Kandeloru, svečanu procesiju koja na Stradunu okuplja mnoštvo vjernika, niz je crkvenih i svjetovnih koncerata, izložaba, predstavljanja knjiga i kazališnih gostovanja posvećenih dubrovačkom zaštitniku, čiji nas kipovi motre s vrata i zidina, a brižna ruka čuva Dubrovnik na dlanu, već više od tisuću ljeta.

Festival of St Blaise The Festival of St Blaise, Dubrovnik patron saint, has been a very special holiday for the people of Dubrovnik ever since the year 972, when they started to celebrate it. Beginning on Candlemass Day with a solemn procession of numerous congregation members, the Festival includes a series of church and secular concerts, exhibitions, book presentations and theatre guest performances dedicated to the Dubrovnik patron saint, whose statues look at us from the city walls and gates, and whose caring hand has protected Dubrovnik on his palm for more than a thousand years.

Festa od kamenica

Kamenice su najzrelije i najukusnije u ožujku kada se slavi blagdan Sv.Josipa, a gastro stručnjaci spominju da je kamenice najbolje služiti svježe otvorene i začinjene limunovim sokom. Baš takve, svježe otvorene i s mirisom mora možete kušati od 19. do 22. ožujka u dubrovačkim i stonskim restoranima. Festa od kamenica je gastro manifestacija, koja je, osim ponude ovih školjaka i jela prigotovljenih od njih (juha od kamenica, pohane kamenice, zapečene kamenice, pržene ili pečene kamenice na razne načine) popraćena i dalmatinskom pjesmom i kapljicom dobroga vina.

Oyster Festival

Oysters are fullest and most delicious in March, when St Joseph’s Day is celebrated. Gastro experts claim that oysters are best served freshly opened with some lemon juice. You will have the opportunity to taste the freshly opened oysters smelling of the sea from 19 to 22 March at the restaurants in Dubrovnik and Ston. The Oyster Festival is a gastro event which offers oysters and oyster dishes (oyster soup, oyster fritters, roasted oysters, fried or baked oysters in various ways) along with the Dalmatian song and a glass of good wine.

Josip Ruđer Bošković

osip Ruđer Bošković (Dubrovnik, 18. V.1711. – Milano, 13. II.1787.), fizičar, matematičar, astronom, geodet, inženjer, pjesnik, filozof i diplomat ostavio je neizbrisiv trag u hrvatskoj i svjetskoj znanosti.

Winter 2010/11

Zanesenjak, znanstvenik, putnik, diplomat... Podrijetlom je iz trgovačke obitelji, koja je dala hrvatskoj kulturi i znanosti iznimno značajne osobe. Poput njegove sestre pjesnikinje Anice Bošković, braće pjesnika: Bara, Ivana Dominika i Petra, i Ruđer Bošković je već zarana osjetio žeđ za stjecanjem znanja ona ga je odvela u avanturu koja je trajala cijeli njegov život. Prve korake u školovanju započeo je u Dubrovniku, a nastavio u Rimu. Po završetku studiranja na Collegiumu Romanumu i preuzimanja ugledne katedre, već se od 1736. istaknuo objavljivanjem rasprava u duhu njutizma. Mladi Ruđer

ne vraća se u Dubrovnik, već ostaje u Italiji, gdje su mogućnosti napredovanja bile veće nego u Dubrovniku i zajedno s grofom Francescom Garampijem, astronomom, motri prolaz Merkura ispred Sunca te upoznaje astronomske instrumente i metodologiju rada. Bošković je svestran pa nastavlja svoj rad u matematici, astronomiji i književnosti.Godine 1742. povjerena mu je važna zadaća da istraži pukotine na kupoli Sv. Petra u Rimu, a istodobno je bio zaokupljen obnovom luka Rimini i Savona, te razgraničenjem voda između Lucce i Toskanskog vojvodstva. Cijeloga svoga života ostao je trajno vezan sa svojom domovinom – Dubrovačkom Republikom, za koju je često obavljao brojne delikatne diplomatske poslove, kao i svojom obitelji, naročito majkom i sestrom, s kojima razmjenjuje nježna pisma na hrvatskome jeziku. Među brojnim talijanskim akademijama bio je članom bolonjske Akademije i rimske Arkadije, gdje će za člana predložiti Voltairea, koji će mu na tome pismeno zahvaliti. Godine 1748. bio je izabran za dopisnog člana Kraljevske akademije u Parizu. Bošković je kao isusovac u Engleskoj 1761. primljen u Royal Society, a tada nastaje i njegov poznati portret. Nemirnog duha cijeloga života bio je u pokretu: putuje preko Carigrada pišući svoj opis Troje, nastavlja put preko Poljske, Šleske i Austrije te se vraća u Italiju. Godine 1764. povjeren mu je osnutak zvjezdarnice u Breri u Milanu, a iz Milana 1774. prelazi u Francusku, gdje prihvaća mjesto upravitelja optike za mornaricu u Parizu. U Francuskoj je stekao i francusko državljanstvo, a kretao se među kremom tadašnje francuske znanstvene elite. Bošković se u smiraj svoga života vraća u Italiju. Umire u Milanu, ne vrativši se u rodni Dubrovnik.

namičko-atomička teorija otvorila je nove vidike u znanosti i odrazila se u mnogim radovima znanstvenika, koji su poput M. Faradaya koji je, temeljeći se na Boškovićevu radu, došao do pojma polja sila, a sve do naših dana Boškovićev znanstveni genij ostao je prihvaćen i na polju suvremene atomske fizike. Josip Ruđer Bošković iznimna je pojavnost XVIII. stoljeća. Teško je oslikati životni put ovog zanesenjaka u znanost, putnika i lutalice trajno vezanog sa svojom rodnom grudom. Kretao se po europskim dvorovima, pa je na prijelomu 1759./1760. kao izaslanik Dubrovačke Republike boravio u Versaillesu u službenoj diplomatskoj misiji. Zahvaljujući poznanstvu s kraljem Stanislawom Leszczycskim, Bošković je došao na dvor. U francuskoj kraljevskoj rezidenciji on je bio čest gost kraljice Marije Leszczycske, supruge Luja XV., kćeri kralja Stanislawa, te i prijestolonasljednika. Svoja politička poznanstva u Poljskoj iskoristio je tijekom rusko-turskog rata godine 1771. kad se Dubrovačka Republika našla u smrtnoj opasnosti. Budući da je Dubrovnik priznavao vrhovnu vlast Turske i plaćao joj godišnji harač, Rusija je Republiku sv. Vlaha proglasila svojim neprijateljem. Zbog toga je admiral Orlov, zapovjednik ruske flote na Jadranu, započeo s presretanjem dubrovačkih brodova i zaprijetio bombardiranjem Dubrovnika. Smirivanja sukoba s Rusima diplomatskim putem, prihvatio se po nalogu Senata Dubrovačke Republike upravo Josip Ruđer Bošković koji je odlučio iskoristiti poznanstva što ih je sklopio tijekom boravka u Poljskoj. Dubrovčanin Bošković je računao na pomoć Stanisława Augusta Poniatowskog, negdašnjeg miljenika carice Katarine II., i nije se prevario. Bošković je već u jesen 1771. uputio poljskom kralju pismo u kojemu je vladaru objasnio tešku situaciju u kojoj se našla Dubrovačka Republika i istodobno je zamolio kralja da intervenira na ruskome dvoru. Nije se razočarao, poljski su diplomati intervenirali u Petersburgu i pripomogli instalaciji dubrovačkog izaslanika Frana Ranjine na carskom dvoru.Ovo je samo jedna od diplomatskih zadaća koje je uspješno okončao na radost svoje domovine. Josip Ruđer Bošković veliko je ime hrvatske i svjetske znanosti i kulture. Svojim životom rodni Dubrovnik i hrvatski narod povezao je s mnogim kulturama i narodima.

he physicist, mathematician, astronomer, geodesist, engineer, poet, philosopher and diplomat Josip Ruđer Bošković (Dubrovnik, 18 May 1711 - Milan, 13 February 1787) was an outstanding personality, who left an inerasable trace both in the Croatian and the world science. He was descended from a family of merchants, which gave several remarkable personalities in the Croatian culture. Like his sister, the poetess Anica Bošković, and his brothers the poets Baro, Ivan Dominik and Petar, Ruđer Bošković felt an early craving for knowledge, which resulted in an adventure that lasted his entire life. He began his studies in Dubrovnik and continued them in Rome. Having graduated from the Collegium Romanum and upon assuming a respectable professorship, he came into prominence by publishing several Newtonian treatises as early as in

1736. The young Ruđer did not return to Dubrovnik, but remained in Italy where the prospects for his advancement were greater. Together with Count Francesco Garampi, the astronomer, he observed the passage of Mercury in front of the Sun, and got acquainted with astronomic instruments and methods. A remarkably versatile person, Bošković continued to work in the fields of mathematic, astronomy and literature. In 1742 he was entrusted with the important task of solving the problem of the crack which had appeared on St Peter’s cupola in Rome. At the same time, he was engaged in the restoration of the ports of Rimini and Savona, and in the solving of water drainage dispute between the Republic of Lucca and the Grand Duchy of Tuscany. All of his life Ruđer Bošković remained connected with his homeland, the Dubrovnik Republic - for which he often performed delicate diplomatic missions - and with his family, exchanging tender letters in the Croatian language with his mother and sister. In Italy he was a member of many academies, including that of Bologna and of the Roman Arcadia - where he recommended Voltaire, who later thanked Bošković in writing – and in 1748 he was appointed a corresponding Zima 2010/11

A visionary, scientist, traveller, diplomat… member of the Paris Royal Academy. As a member of the Society of Jesus, Bošković was admitted to the English Royal Society in 1976, when his well-known portrait was made. A restless spirit, he spent his entire life on the move. He travelled from Constantinople - where he wrote his description of Troy - via Poland, Silesia and Austria, in order to return to Italy. In 1764 he was entrusted with the starting of an astronomical observatory in Brera, Milan, from where he moved to France in 1774, where was appointed the navy optics director in Paris. He acquired the French citizenship and moved in the most prestigious scientific circles of France. In his late years Bošković returned to Italy and died in Milan, never returning to his native Dubrovnik. Bošković’s greatest contribution to science is particularly in the field of understanding the structure of things, which is systematically elaborated in his work entitled Philosophiae naturalis theoria (1758). His dynamic-atomic theory offered new insights in science and influenced the works of numerous scientists, including M. Faraday who came to the idea of the force Winter 2010/11

field on the basis of Bošković’s work. In the field of modern atomic physics the scientific brilliance of Ruđer Bošković has continued to be recognised up to this day. Josip Ruđer Bošković is an outstanding 18th century phenomenon. It is difficult to depict the life of this scientific enthusiast, traveller and wanderer, who was nevertheless permanently connected with his homeland. Having had access to European courts, Bošković was a Dubrovnik Republic envoy in Versailles on an official diplomatic mission in 1759/1760. He came to the court owing to his acquaintance with King Stanislaw Leszczycski. He frequently visited the French royal residence as a guest of Maria Leszczycska - the wife of Louis XV and daughter of King Stanislaw - and also of the heir to the throne. He used his politic connections in Poland during the Russian-Turkish war of 1771, when the Dubrovnik Republic was in mortal danger. Taking into consideration the fact that Dubrovnik recognized the supreme authority of Turkey paying an annual pool tax, Russia proclaimed the Republic of St Blaise its enemy. Thus, Admiral Or-

lov, the Russian Adriatic fleet commander, began to intercept the Dubrovnik ships and threatened to shell the City. By order of the Dubrovnik Republic Senate, Josip Ruđer Bošković undertook the task of calming down the conflict with the Russians in a diplomatic way, intending to use the acquaintances he had made during his sojourn in Poland. He counted on the help of Stanisław August Poniatowski, the one time favourite of Queen Catherine II, and his expectations were fulfilled. Already in the autumn of 1771 Bošković wrote a letter to the King of Poland, explaining the Dubrovnik Republic’s difficult situation and asking the king to intervene at the Russian court. The Polish diplomats indeed intervened in St Petersburg and helped the appointment of the Dubrovnik envoy Frano Ranjina at the royal court. This is only one of the diplomatic missions which Bošković completed successfully to the joy of his homeland. A leading scientific and cultural spirit of Croatia and the world, Josip Ruđer Bošković connected both his native Dubrovnik and the people of Croatia with many other cultures and nations. Welcome

godina dubrovačkoga tramvaja

K

ada je nastajao dubrovački tramvaj, Dubrovnik je – tada u sastavu Austro-Ugarske – imao oko 12 tisuća stanovnika. Nakon pada Republike i ulaska Napoleonovih postrojbi u Grad, Dubrovnik stagnira na svekolikom gospodarskom polju, međutim, Austro-Ugarska će gradnjom uskotračne željezničke pruge Brod – Bosanski Brod – Doboj – Sarajevo – Dubrovnik – Zelenika dati nov poticaj za gospodarski razvitak ovog dijela Dalmacije. Upravo će gradnja te pruge ubrzati ostvarenje ideje o prometnom povezivanju Gruža i Pila jer sve do pojave tramvaja ta su dva dijela Grada bila prepuštena nesigurnom prijevozu uz pomoć kočija, a nešto kasnije i omnibusa kojega su vukli konji. U vrijeme uvođenja tramvaja Gruž je bio dubrovačka periferija, ali istodobno i luka koja je bila izvorište svih putovanja. Gruž je isto tako u tadašnjem Dubrovniku bio svojevrsna industrijska zona, ali i predio za njegovo moguće širenje. Kad se sve rečeno uzelo u obzir, tada je bilo razumljivo, logično, pa i gospodarski isplativo povezati ta dva gradska dijela. Puštanjem u pogon elektrane, točnije termoelektrane u Dubrovniku 1. lipnja 1901. stvorene su i prve pretpostavke za funkcioniranje tramvaja. Presudan trenutak zbio se 1905 kad je osnovan Odbor za gradnju električnoga tramvaja, na čijem je čelu bio Luko Bona, jedna od najzaslužnijih osoba koje su pridonijele ostvarenju projekta uvođenja tramvaja u Dubrovniku. Ostali članovi Odbora bili su: Ivo Papi, dr. Miho Papi, dr. Artur Saraka, Mato Šarić, dr. Antun Pugliesi, dr. Mato Gracić, dr. Ivo Degiulli, Ernest Katić i Antun Milić. Novi Osnivački odWinter 2010/11

bor d.d. utemeljen je 1908., a priključili su mu se svi predstavnici kapitala. Gradnja dubrovačkoga tramvaja postignuće je iznimne gospodarske sloge, domoljublja i požrtvovnosti koji su u današnje vrijeme gotovo neshvatljivi. Realizacija takva projekta trebala je pokazati Beču kako je nekoć slavan i gospodarski moćan Grad još pun potencijala da samostalno ostvari, za to vrijeme, uistinu tehnički zahtjevan gospodarski projekt. O tomu svjedoči i brzina postavljanja tračnica – kolosijek je postavljen u samo 48 radnih dana. Izvedba električnog tramvaja pripala je tvrtki Fr. Križik iz Praga. Prvih pet dubrovačkih tramvaja, njihov kolni ormar i kolni slog kupljeni su u tvornici Grazer Wagonen und Maschinenfabrik. Dubrovački tramvaj imao je 1910. pet motornih kola s brojevima 1, 2, 3, 4 i 5 te tri zatvorene prikolice, također kupljene u spomenutoj tvrtki u Grazu, a imale su registracijske brojeve 21, 22 i 23. Dubrovački električni tramvaj pušten je u pogon 22. prosinca 1910. te je prometovao sve do 1970. godine. Sedmog ožujka 1970. oko 9 sati dogodila se teška prometna nesreća na Pilama kada su tramvajska kola br. 5, koja su vozila na relaciji Pile – Lapad, iskočila iz tračnica i survala se u gradski park na

Pilama. Jedna je osoba poginula, a više njih bilo je ranjeno. Ubrzo potom, točnije 20. ožujka 1970. u 12 sati, na svim relacijama ukinut je promet dubrovačkog tramvaja. Dan kada je dubrovački tramvaj imao svoju posljednju vožnju mnogim će Dubrovčanima ostati u trajnom sjećanju. Nekoliko tisuća Dubrovčana došlo je na tu posljednju vožnju tramvajem te tako pokazalo emotivnu vezu s tim prometalom koja i danas traje istim intenzitetom. U svakom slučaju, dubrovački tramvaj dio je kulturno-tehničke baštine cijele Hrvatske te je ujedno i jedini tramvaj koji je vozio u Dalmaciji. Danas je dubrovački tramvaj, zajedno s prikolicom, izložen u Tehničkom muzeju u Zagrebu.

hen the Dubrovnik tram was coming into existence, the City – a part of the AustroHungarian Empire at the time – had about 12 thousand inhabitants. After the abolition of the Dubrovnik Republic and the arrival of Napoleon’s troupes in the City, Dubrovnik faced an overall economic decline. However, by constructing the Brod – Bosanski Brod – Doboj – Sarajevo – Dubrovnik – Zelenika narrow-gauge railway, the Austro-Hungarian Empire gave a new impetus to the development of this part of Dalmatia. The railway’s construction speeded up the realisation of the idea about traffic connection between Gruž and Pile, because before the appearance of the tram these two city districts depended on the unreliable coach transport and later on horse driven omnibuses. At that time Gruž was a periphery of Dubrovnik and a port of departure. It was also a kind of industrial zone and the area where the City could possibly expand. In view of these facts, it was understandable, logical and economically profitable to connect these two city areas. The first prerequisites for the functioning of the tram were created by putting the Dubrovnik power plant - or thermo-electric power plant, to be more precise - into operation on 1 June 1901. After that, in 1905, the Electric Tram Committee was founded, headed by Luko Bona, one of the people most responsible for the realisation of the Dubrovnik tram project. Other committee members included: Ivo Papi, Dr. Miho Papi, Dr. Artur Saraka, Mato Šarić, Dr. Antun Pugliesi, Dr. Mato Gracić, Dr. Ivo Degiulli, Ernest Katić and Antun Milić. The New Founding Committee Ltd. was founded in 1908, and it also included representatives of all financers. The Dubrovnik tram was the result of an outstanding economic concord, patriotism and dedication which are almost incomprehensible nowadays. The project realisation was supposed to show Vienna that once glorious and economically

Years of Dubrovnik Tram powerful City still possessed the potential to carry out such technology-wise extremely demanding project. Testimony to that was the speed at which the rails were laid – the gauge was laid in 48 work days only. The electric tram construction was entrusted to the Fr. Križik Co. of Prague. The first five Dubrovnik trams were purchased from the Grazer Wagonen und Maschinenfabrik. In 1910 the Dubrovnik tram had five motor units with the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 and three closed cars, also purchased from the afore mentioned company in Graz, while their registration numbers were 21, 22 and 23. The Dubrovnik electric tram was put into operation on 22 December 1910, and it operated until 1970. On 7 March 1970 there was a major traffic accident at Pile. The car No. 5, which operated between Pile and Lapad, left the rails and crashed into the Pile public garden. One person was killed and several

injured. Soon after that, on 20 March 1970, at 12 noon, the Dubrovnik tram stopped operating. The day when the Dubrovnik tram made its last drive remained imprinted in the memory of Dubrovnik residents. Several thousands of them came to that last drive showing their emotional attachment for the tram which has survived until this day. The Dubrovnik tram is by all means a part of the cultural and technical heritage of entire Croatia, being at the same time the only one that operated in Dalmatia. The Dubrovnik tram is now exhibited at the Zagreb Museum of Technology.

Festa svetoga Vlaha, zaštitnika Dubrovnika

D

ubrovnik ima, uz sve svoje posebnosti, i onu najveću – tradiciju slavljenja sv. Vlaha, zaštitnika Grada, svoga Parca. Festa sv. Vlaha najkorjenitija je i najdraža dubrovačka svečanost, ponos kroz povijest, a sve u slavu zaštitnika sv. Vlaha: liječnika, biskupa i mučenika iz armenske Sebaste, koji se štuje po cijeloj Europi i svijetu, ali nigdje tako snažno i zdušno, s toliko vjere i poštovanja kao u Dubrovniku, koji ga je po legendi 972. g. uzeo za svoga zaštitnika, a po dokumentima njegovo je štovanje zasvjedočeno od 1190. godine. Dubrovnik i sv. Vlaho nerazdvojni su pojmovi, gotovo istoznačnice. Snaga i simbolika nebeskoga zaštitnika utemeljila je i razvijala kulturni prostor Dubrovnika i njegova područja, oblikujući lokalni i nacionalni kulturni pejzaž svestranim pojavnostima, povezujući materijalnu i nematerijalnu kulturnu baštinu prožimljućom duhovnom dimenzijom. Stoga je osobito radosno i svečano odzvonila vijest iz Abu Dhabija 30. rujna 2009.g.o upisu Feste svetoga Vlaha na Reprezentativnu UNESCO-vu Listu nematerijalne kulturne baštine čovječanstva, kao prinos hrvatske, dubrovačke posebnosti jedinstvu svjetskih civilizacijskih i kulturoloških različitosti.

Dubrovnik je tako po drugi put, nakon upisa spomeničke cjeline Grada iz 1979. g., ušao u UNESCO-v registar i po Festi svetoga Vlaha, na što su Dubrovčani posebno ponosni. Sv. Vlaho srastao je s ovim Gradom i njegovim pukom, a središnja Festa s veličanstvenom procesijom 3. veljače, u kojoj se nose svečeve moći, uz sudjelovanje puka, klera, hodočasnika i gostiju, što se slavi više od milenija, srž je dubrovačke duše i identiteta, slobode i mira. Ponosna sam i sretna jer sam dala prinos upisu naše Feste najprije na hrvatski popis nematerijalnih kulturnih dobara, a zatim kreirajući obrazloženje i prikupljajući dokumentaciju u ime i na prijedlog Konzervatorskog odjela u Dubrovniku, sudjelovala u dugogodišnjoj zahtjevnoj proceduri ispunjavanja UNESCO-vih kriterija, koji su prethodili odluci o upisu. Upis na UNESCO-vu Listu obavljen je uz najveću moguću suradnju i sudjelovanje svih sudionika dubrovačke lokalne zajednice (posebno rektora Crkve sv. Vlaha don Tome Lučića), kako crkovne tako i svjetovne vlasti - a ima zadaću podizati svijest o nematerijalnoj baštini ugroženoj globalizacijskim procesima, nadalje poticati dijalog kao odraz kulturne raznolikosti diljem svijeta i svjedočanstvo o ljudskoj kreativnosti.

No, bez vjere, katoličke tradicije, bliske povezanosti dubrovačkoga puka i milog zaštitnika, sv. Vlaha, bez ljubavi za svog Parca, ne bi se mogla održati vjekovna tradicija, posebno kultura nasljeđivanja, po kojoj je Festa sv. Vlaha postala Festa za cijeli svijet!

he greatest among Dubrovnik particularities is the tradition of honouring St Blaise, the City’s patron saint. The Festival of St Blaise is Dubrovnik’s oldest and most favourite festivity, honouring St Blaise, the bishop and martyr from the Armenian city of Sebasta. He is celebrated all over Europe, but nowhere so ardently, wholeheartedly, and with so much faith and respect as in Dubrovnik. Legend has it that Dubrovnik recognized St Blaise as its patron in 972, and records show that he has been honoured since 1190. Zima 2010/11

The Festival of

Saint Blaise

,

the patron of Dubrovnik Almost synonyms, Dubrovnik and St Blaise are inseparable. The power and symbolism of its heavenly protector established and developed the cultural area of Dubrovnik and its surroundings, using universal phenomena to give form to both local and national cultural landscape, and connecting material and nonmaterial cultural heritage by permiting spiritual dimension. That is the reason why the news from Abu Dhabi of 30 September 2009 on the Festival of St Blaise joining the representative UNESCO Non-material Cultural Heritage List were received with outstanding enthusiasm, being Croatia’s and Dubrovnik’s contribution in the world’s civilisational and culturological diversity. The people of Dubrovnik take special pride in the fact that, after joining UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1979, Dubrovnik was for the second time included in UNESCO List owing to its Festival of St Blaise. St Blaise is inseparably connected with the City and its residents. The central Festival event with a magnificent procession taking place on 3 February - when the holy relics of St Blaise are carried in the presence of clergy, pilgrims, dwellers and guests of the City - which has been celebrated for more than a millennium, is the essence of Dubrovnik’s spirit, identity, freedom and peace. I am proud and happy for my contribution in including our Festival at first in the Croatian Non-material Cultural Heritage List, and later in participating in the long-time demanding procedure of meeting the UNESCO criteria preceding the inclusion by conceptualizing the explanation and collecting the Winter 2010/11

documents on behalf of and at the suggestion of the Dubrovnik Art Conservation Department. The purpose of the inclusion - which was made possible owing to full cooperation of all members of the Dubrovnik local community (particularly Father Tomo Lučić, Rector of St Blaise’s Church) including both church and city authorities - is to raise the non-material heritage awareness endangered by the globalization process, and to further encourage dialogue as a reflection of cultural diversity all over the world and as a testimony to human creativity. However, without faith, the Catholic tradition, the close connectedness between the people of Dubrovnik and their dearly loved protector St Blaise, and without love for their patron saint, the centuries long tradition could not have been preserved, particularly the culture of inheriting, which recognised the Festival of St Blaise as world heritage! And in conclusion, following the Dubrovnik tradition, let us exclaim proudly:

Long live St Blaise! Welcome

ZAŠTO VOLIM DUBROVNIK

Obamin savjetnik na Pelješkom vinskom putu

K

ada je američkom predsjedniku Baracku Obami javio da će prihvatiti odgovornu funkciju direktora posrnule najveće svjetske osiguravajuće kuće, American International Group, AIG-a, ali tek nakon berbe u njegovom pelješkom vinogradu, oči svjetske javnosti bile su okrenute prema jugu Hrvatske gdje nekoliko mjeseci godišnje boravi Robert Benmosche. Dugogodišnji šef osiguravateljske kuće Met Life spremao se ostatak života provesti u mirovini koju je planirao provoditi većinom u svojoj prekrasnoj kući u Dubrovniku, kada ga je američki predsjednik Barack Obama zamolio za pomoć. Smatrao je da svoje iskustvo i znanje mora staviti na raspolaganje u tom gospodarski kriznom vremenu i prihvatio je ponovno biti radno aktivan. No, visoko na listi njegovih životnih prioriteta ostali su – pelješki vinogradi i Zinfandel, sorta grožđa koju je vratio doma, u Hrvatsku. Postao je ujedno najveći promotor Hrvatske kao zemlje vrhunskih vina. Jedan od financijski najutjecajnijih i najstručnijih ljudi na svijetu, za svake je berbe u svojim vinogradima na Pelješcu gdje mu posao vodi partnerica, pelješka vinarka Marija Mrgudić.

Dubrovnik ste prvi put posjetili 1987. godine...

-... kada sam doveo tristotinjak financijskih savjetnika s Wall Streeta da proslave uspješnu poslovnu godinu. Izlet je bio iznimno uspješan i ostavio je toplo mjesto u mome srcu. Samome sebi tada sam obećao da ću se jednoga dana vratiti. I jeste. Odlučili ste kupiti kuću u Dubrovniku? Zašto?

- Kasnih 90-tih saznao sam da sorta grožđa Zinfandel potječe iz Hrvatske. Tada mi je sinula ideja da Zinfandel jednog dana vratim doma i da, kada po-

đem u mirovinu, dio svoga vremena provedem proizvodeći vino u Hrvatskoj, živeći u Dubrovniku. Desetak godina kasnije, 2000-te, vratio sam se u potragu za vinogradima želeći ulagati u Hrvatsku i pomoći pokrenuti tradiciju proizvodnje vina kako bi zemlja u tom segmentu postala svjetski poznata. Jeste li tada pokrenuli posao u Hrvatskoj?

- Ne, nisam tada pronašao odgovarajuće vinograde, ali sam dobio mogućnost kupiti prekrasnu vilu u blizini mora koja mi je postala domom iz kojega sam mogao krenuti u novi poslovni izazov. Kada sam 2006. pošao u mirovinu, zasadio sam svoj prvi Zinfandel u vinogradu u Vignju na Pelješcu, također i Plavac Mali u vinogradu u Dingaču, na tristotinjak metara od mora. Prva berba Zinfandela dala je skoro 2 tisuće kilograma visokokvalitetnog grožđa. Hrvatska je veličanstvena destinacija za odmor, osobito dalmatinska obala. Trebamo svi zajedno raditi još više na tome da se gosti osjećaju dobrodošlima te da usluga koju im pružamo bude jednako kvalitetna ljepoti zemlje i toplini ljudi u Hrvatskoj. Moramo raditi svi zajedno na tome da proizvodimo svjetska vina. Ovo zahtjeva dugoročna ulaganja tako da mi zapravo radimo za buduću generaciju. Toga smo svjesni i ja i moja partnerica Mare Mrgudić čija obitelj proizvodi vrhunska vina generacijama.

WHY I LOVE DUBROVNIK

Obama’s Adviser on the Pelješac Wine Route Uživa li Vaša obitelj u Dubrovniku i pelješkim vinogradima kao i Vi?

- Moja obitelj obožava dolaziti u Dubrovnik i pokušavaju iznaći način da ostanu ovdje što dulje. Ovo je prekrasno mjesto na kojemu postanete svjesni ljepote življenja. Kada Vas prijatelji pitaju čime Vas je Dubrovnik privukao, što kažete?

- Mnogi me prijatelji pitaju – Zašto baš Hrvatska? Odgovaram im protupitanjem jesu li ikada bili u Hrvatskoj i preporukom da mi isto pitanje postave nakon što ju posjete. Oni koji su poslušali moj savjet više nisu postavljali ovo pitanje jer su odgovor znali sami, moja opčinjenost Hrvatskom postala im je jasna. I njih je Hrvatska osvojila svojom čistoćom, mirom i nevjerojatnom ljepotom. Iako sam se nakon tri godine mirovine morao vratiti na posao, veseli me pomisao da ću za godinu ili dvije moći opet provoditi pet mjeseci godišnje u Dubrovniku i svake godine proizvoditi kvalitetnije vino.

pon informing the President of the United States, Barack Obama, that he would accept the invitation to assume the role of CEO of American International Group, the world’s major insurance corporation suffering from a liquidity crisis, but only after the grape harvesting in his vineyard on the Pelješac Peninsula, the eyes of the world were on the south of Croatia where Robert Benmosche lives several months a year. The longtime CEO of Metropolitan Life Insurance Company was planning to spend his retirement days in his beautiful house in Dubrovnik, when the current American

President asked his help. Aware of the fact that his knowledge and experience were needed in time of crisis, Robert Benmosche agreed to return to active service. However, his Pelješac vineyards and Zinfandel - the wine variety which he brought back to its Croatian home - remained highly positioned on his list of life priorities. At the same time Benmosche became the major promoter of Croatia as a country of top quality wines. One of the world’s most influential financial experts, he spends grape harvesting time in his Pelješac vineyards, where his partner Marija Mrgudić, a local wine producer, runs the business for him. - «I first came to Dubrovnik in 1987 when I brought almost three hundred Wall Street financial advisers to celebrate their successful sales year. The trip was a tremendous success and it left a warm place in my heart. I said then, one day I hoped to return.» And you returned indeed, and decided to buy a house in Dubrovnik? Why?

- «In the late 1990s I learned that the grape variety Zinfandel came from Croatia. I then came to the idea to bring Zinfandel back to its home one day, and, when I retire, to spend part of my time making Zinfandel wine in Croatia and living part of my retirement in Dubrovnik. Ten years later, in 2000 I returned to look for vineyards and to begin to invest in Croatia to help restore the country’s heritage of being a world leader in producing wonderful wines.» Did you start the business in Croatia then?

- «I didn’t find vineyards at the time, but I did have the opportunity to invest in a villa that could be a base of operations for my new business venture.

When I retired in 2006, I started my first Zinfandel vineyard in Viganj on the Pelješac Peninsula and also a small Plavac Mali vineyard in Dingač 300 metres above the sea. Both are doing great and our Zinfandel harvest had almost 2,000 kilos of high quality grapes. Croatia is a great destination for vacationers, especially along the Dalmatian coast. What I hope we all do is a better job of making people feel welcome and that our service is as good as the beauty of the land and the people of Croatia. We also need to work together to produce world class wines. This will require long term investments so that we build for the next generation. Some wine producers are already doing that, but we need so many more to join the effort. Mare Mrgudić and her family are leading that important effort.» Does your family enjoy Dubrovnik and your Pelješac vineyards as much as you do?

- « My family loves coming to visit each year and they keep wanting to find way to stay longer. It is such a beautiful place to stop and take time to appreciate life.» What do you tell your friends when they ask: why Dubrovnik?

- «Many friends ask why Dubrovnik. I then ask if they had ever been to Croatia, and they say no. I say then that after they visit, they can ask me again. But when they come to visit, they simply say ‘got it’. It is just so clean, safe, peaceful and incredibly beautiful. While I have had to return to work after three years of retirement, I look forward in a year or two to being able to again spend five months a year living in Dubrovnik and making better wine every year.»

Dom atelje Jagode Buić Wuttke

I Ionesco je uživao u Kolorini Iako oko nastanka lokaliteta, koji je danas prepoznat kao uvala Kolorina, postoji mnogo legendi, prvi povijesni podatci kažu da su u tim kućicama u 11. stoljeću zapravo živjeli radnici koji su gradili tvrđavu Lovrjenac. Pretpostavlja se da su oni iz neposredne blizine kućica vadili kamenje koje je pomoglo u gradnji impozantne tvrđave na koju sa svih terasa kućica, puca nezaboravan pogled. Eksterijer i interijer ispunjavaju kameni stolovi i klupe, pokoja pletena stolica te kreveti prekriveni bijelim pletenim prekrivačima. Na kamenoj klupi na terasi, izležavao se i Eugene Ionesco koji je svoj užitak izrazio riječima: “Ne mičem se odavde!”

Dubrovnik bi dakle zimi trebao nastaviti biti centar kulture u kojem bi se uživalo više nego ljeti gužvajući se u nepreglednoj masi ljudi. Neprihvatljivo mi je opravdanje za sve “nema novaca” jer se mnoge stvari, uz entuzijazam i ljubav za Grad, mogu napraviti i bez ili s vrlo malo novca kaže Jagoda Buić Wuttke.

f one looked for a home in Dubrovnik unique for its position and the feeling of close connectedness with Mediterranean culture and nature, it would undoubtedly be the Dubrovnik home of the world famous artist Jagoda Buić Wuttke. The complex of small stone houses on the cliffs overlooking Fort Lovrjenac and Kolorina Cove is a unique architectural unit, whose value is enhanced by the refined taste and artistic touch of this outstanding artist. Ever since she envisioned her unique Dubrovnik home with terraces and six interconnected small houses in the mid 1960s, it became an example of how one can retain the original form of a space and make it comfortable with as few interventions as possible.

The studio home of Jagoda Buić Wuttke

Napisala/By Paulina Peko

In spite of many legends of the origin of the locality known today as Kolorina Cove, the first historic records show that in the 11th century the little houses were actually inhabited by the builders of Fort Lovrjenac. It is supposed that they used the stones found in close proximity to the houses for the construction of this imposing fort. Their exterior and interior consist of stone tables and benches, wicker chairs and beds covered with white knitted bedspreads. One of those who lolled about on the terrace stone bench, Eugene Ionesco expressed his enjoyment in the following words: „Wild horses wouldn’t drag me away from here!“

The white little houses give out the Mediterranean nostalgia. Having spent many days throwing stones and waste materials out of them, Jagoda Buić Wuttke decided to paint the entire interior white. The most impressive room is the one with a fireplace in its centre, which remained in its original state.

- A house is not only a house in the physical, but also in the spiritual sense. When asked how long I would stay in Dubrovnik, I reply: till the rains wash me away. To tell the truth, here I feel fine in winter too, while promenading along the empty moonlit Stradun. However, the place of my inspiration and my main working place is a small plateau at the foot of Lovrjenac, where I lie down in the summer, absorb the rays of the sun and dream… - says Jagoda Buić Wuttke. The artist decorated the small houses in Kolorina fully respecting the antiquity and landscape, which is, after all, her artistic credo. In the little house she uses as a studio she made a large number of sketches for set designs, costumes and exhibitions put up all over the world. Numerous visitors have had the opportunity to see the great retrospec-

tive exhibition of Jagoda Buić Wuttke, which will remain open until the end of September because of a huge public interest. The exhibition presented more than 200 works, including 26 representative tapestries mainly borrowed from the prestigious cultural institutions of France such as UNESCO in Paris, the Visual Arts Museum of Bordeaux and FNAC (Modern Art and Sculpture Centre) in Paris, as well as from the Zagreb Gallery of Modern Art and the Split Art Gallery. After all, the works of this world famous artist are exhibited in almost all major modern art museums in the world. Infatuated with theatre ever since her grammar school days, Jagoda Buić Wuttke has made some 150 set and costume designs, and has also been engaged as a theatre director. She now spends her intriguing creative life between Paris, Rome, Dubrovnik and Provence. Her Provence home - which belonged to Marquise de Sade’s confessor - overlooks De Sade’s demolished castle, now restored by Pierre Cardin, while her Kolorina home in Dubrovnik overlooks Fort Lovrjenac, the City’s most prominent fortification. - Dubrovnik in winter should be as attractive as Dubrovnik in summer. Its winter audience could include more sophisticated and artistically more perceptive visitors. Dubrovnik in winter should thus continue to be a cultural centre in which the visitors enjoy much more than in summer pushing through huge crowds of people. The explanation „there is no money“ is unacceptable, because, with enthusiasm and love for the City, many things can be done with no or with small sums of money – claims Jagoda Buić Wuttke.

tivnog izgleda i sadržaja, zvanog Plathea Magna, život će teći i svakodnevno trajati, pa i nakon što mu se obličje izmijeni. Kada je kataklizmički potres, 6. travnja 1667., koji je i samo postojanje Grada doveo u pitanje, pokopavši mu gotovo polovicu stanovnika – preobrazio lice Place obujmivši je s obje strane redom naizgled istih kuća - bilo je to iz nužde, koja je rodila skladom. Vojni inženjer Giulio Cerruti iz Rima, poslan u Dubrovnik zalaganjem rodoljubnog oca domovine, Dubrovčanina, u Vatikanu utjecajnog opata Stjepana Gradića, obnovio je dubrovačku glavnu arteriju čistoćom i jednostavnošću urbanističke zamisli, potpuno uvažavajući zadanu formu Grada i organizaciju prostora, na staroj matrici iz 13. stoljeća. Ugođaj asimetrične simetričnosti, po stanovitoj dinamici svojstvenoj baroknim pravilima, progovorio je unificiranim jezikom,

zrelo i osmišljeno, uspostavljajući na Placi estetiku reda jednostavnih mogućnosti. Tu civiliziranu odmjerenost očito nimalo dobro nije razumio, stoljeće kasnije, nesklon i zavidni Mlečanin, uzviknuvši na sjajno(j) popločanoj Placi:“Che strada, che stradone!“ U prijevodu bi taj pejorativni augmentativ glasio: uličetina. Toga se pogrdnog naziva malo tko sjeća kada kroči na dubrovački Stradun. Lijep je u sve sate dana i noći. Pun čeljadi i prazan. Ritmiziran svojim vratima na koljeno. Skladan i odmjeren kao i Grad, čiji je izlog i ures. Sve se gradske ulice u njega slijevaju, sva mu se kućna pročelja okreću, svi zvonici Grada njemu zvone, gradske fontane na njegovim krajevima vodom žubore.

Stradun The City’s Anteroom

“M

ore than a street and more than a main street, Stradun is a world of its own. A complete one.”, wrote Luko Paljetak, Dubrovnik’s greatest lyric poet. The description was accurate indeed, and so were his anthological verses: “’Tis not just a street but a paternoster of our daily life, our anteroom, a hall of Versailles, a place where you can walk and dance to the tune, and to your own will.” The original name of Stradun is Placa, although few people in Dubrovnik call it by that name nowadays. In that 300 metre long world in the shape of an elongated irregular rectangle, called Plathea Magna - the dimensions of which are in accordance with the representative surrounding buildWinter 2010/11

ings constructed before the Great Earthquake – life went on, regardless of the architectural changes. After the cataclysmic earthquake of 6 April 1667 – which jeopardised the very existence of the City destroying almost half of its population – had changed the appearance of Placa, two rows of seemingly alike buildings were constructed along its sides. Although done out of necessity, this resulted in harmony. Thanks to the interceding of Abbot Stjepan Gradić, the native of Dubrovnik and Father of the Country who was very influential in Vatican, the military architect from Rome Giulio Cerruti was sent to Dubrovnik. Fully respecting the city’s specific form and space, he restored the main street of Dubrovnik according to a clear and simple design based on the old 13th century city plan. Following a dynamics characteristic of baroque

rules, the atmosphere of asymmetric symmetry spoke in a uniform language, maturely and meaningfully, establishing the aesthetics of simple possibilities in Placa. One century later, an antagonistic and envious visitor from Venice obviously failed to understand this civilised sense of proportion. Having seen the shiny paved Placa, he exclamed: “Che strada, che stradone“! An approximate translation of this pejorative augmentative is: a large street. However, few people nowadays remember this abusive name while walking along Stradun. Crowded and empty, in the rhythm of its knee-shaped doors, Stradun is wellproportioned and neat, like the City adorned with it. All the city streets lead to it, all fronts of the buildings face it and all bells of the City ring for it, while the water gurgles in the fountains standing at its beginning and at its end. Welcome

Za mladog dubrovačkog majstora umjetničke fotografije Marka Ercegovića, kao da je prirodni tijek stvari odlučio što on jest i što će biti, dojam je kojega ostavljaju njegove fotografije koje su precizno i jasno, no nepretenciozno zaustavljene, sačuvane sekvence vremena. Marko je četvrta generacija u obitelji Ercegović koja se bavi fotografijom. Zajedno s generacijom izuzetno nadarenih mladih fotografa čini prepoznatljiv umjetnički krug koji već više godina utječe na oblikovanje dubrovačke kulturne stvarnosti i s razlogom se vjeruje da će i njihov rad imati značenje na puno široj sceni.

Je li riječ samo o osobnom senzibilitetu ili je ipak to i stvar genskog koda i odnjegovanog pristupa ljudima, stvarima, vremenu… ? - Mislim da je to stvar osobnog razvoja.

S druge strane, ono što okružuje motiv bitno je kao i on sam - fotografija je ono što NISTE snimili, što je izostavljeno.

Kako vi vidite sadašnji stvarni Dubrovnik, a kakvog biste ga htjeli vidjeti sutra? - U Zagrebu radim, Dubrovnik je moje doma. Tu svjedočim svakodnevnoj eksploataciji slike Grada od tisuća „neurotičnih“ fotoamatera.

Umjetnost nije objašnjenje, nego slutnja – čini se najispravnijim objašnjenjem Markovog pristupa fotografiji, umjetnosti i životu općenito. U tom smislu on će reći da je fotografija za umjetnost otprilike ono što je šah za sport, te da je najbolje objašnjenje umjetničkog rada da je to proces, s nepredvidivim krajem, i da su tek povremeni rezultati oni koji su vrijedni pažnje.

He has had a large number of one-man and group exhibitions and has been awarded many times at home and abroad. - We know what we are, but know not what we may be – said one of Shakespeare’s characters. For the young Dubrovnik master of art photography

Marko Ercegović, it seems that the natural course of things is responsible for what he is and what he will be. This is the impression that his photographs leave. They are the precisely and clearly, yet unpretentiously halted, preserved sequences of time. Marko Ercegović belongs to the fourth generation of phoWinter 2010/11

tographers in his family. Together with a generation of outstandingly talented young photographers, he is a part of a recognisable art circle which has been influencing the Dubrovnik cultural reality for several years, and whose work is, with good reason, expected to affect a much wider area. Distancing themselves from the motifs and enabling the observer to experience the mood of the moment captured by the camera without direct suggestions, your photographs often seem to reflect the very essence of Dubrovnik mentality in its best manner and unobtrusiveness. Is it merely your own sensibility, or also a matter of genetic code and sophisticated approach to people, things, time…?

your motifs particularly in the social and spatial margins? - In the post-war Croatia, the central position was taken by the people and events I am not interested in. They have their own photographers on the payroll. A larger part remains to me, and I believe it has nothing to do with any margins. What I am interested in are the events which are apparently marginal, but which I consider to have major importance in the medium of photography. You live in Zagreb, but keep on returning to Dubrovnik. I once heard a Dubrovnik photographer saying to his friend that he would have been very

I believe it to be a matter personal growth. A photographer must approach his motif with respect if he wishes it to be generous. In a sense, that distance is not disturbing, as if you are approaching someone who is dozing. On the other hand, that which surrounds the motif is as important as the motif itself. A photograph is that which you DID NOT capture, that which is omitted.

You grew up and matured in your work at the time which is quite special for Dubrovnik, in a post-war and culturally indisposed environment, although it does not seem so from the outside. Were that time and environment the reasons why you began to look for the truth, beauty and reality in the margin, taking into consideration that you often find

happy if he had been in Dubrovnik for the first time at that moment. What is your perception of the real presentday Dubrovnik, and what kind of Dubrovnik would you like to see in the future? - I work in Zagreb, and Dubrovnik is my home. This is where I bear witness to the everyday exploitation of the City’s image by thousands of “neurotic” amateur photographers. Their inability to cope with the scene in front of them is the reason they place their cameras in between – it is a kind of aggression in self-defence from the beauty they see. I feel a need to defy them: the moment I see a spectacular event I lay my camera aside and watch, and the things begin to intrigue me when nothing is going on. Art is not an explanation, but a presentiment – seems to be the most precise explanation of Marko’s approach to photography, art and life in general. In that sense he says that - roughly speaking - photography is for art that which chess is for sports, and that the best explanation of artistic creation is that it is a process with unforeseeable outcome, and that only occasional results deserve attention.

Trgovinu sam naslijedio od oca i otkad znam za sebe, tu sam. Skoro sam se i rodio ovdje – govori Mladen Mišić koji je s desetljećima rada prikupio i hvalevrijednu kolekciju starih brava i ključeva. Skupljati ih je počeo njegov otac, a on je do danas kolekciju utrostručio. Ima više od 350 ključeva i oko 60 starih brava. - Ljudi znaju da sam skupljač pa mi donose ključeve. Neki dan mi je jedan poznanik donio punu vrećicu ključića od malih škrinjica. Skupio je brava starih po 300, pa i 400 godina, koje su zamijenjene novima, a potom bačene. - U želji za novim, ljudi nerijetko bacaju stare brave i ključeve koje sam znao pronaći na smetlištu. Meni je najdraža u kolekciji brava sa zvoncem. Ona se ne otvara uobičajeno već je treba tri puta okrenuti, a onda na njoj zazvoni batić. Potrebno je malo pričekati i ključ vratiti u suprotnome smjeru. To je brava s mornarske škrinje kojoj je to bila zaštita. Ako bi je netko pokušao otvoriti čulo bi se zvono. Imam dvije takve brave. S trećom mi je došao na popravak vlasnik koji nije znao kako se otvara – priča Mladen Mišić kojega posebno veseli kolekcija ključeva. Neki od njih stari su više stoljeća.

- Vjerujem da je najstariji ključ onaj od prije 450 godina. Ne znam za što je služio, ali je bio za otvaranje nečega vrlo važnoga jer je specifično izrađen. Po vrlo kompliciranoj izradi vidi se otprilike za što su ključevi korišteni. Tako imam 5, 6 starinskih ključa od grada starih više od stotinu godina. Na njima se vidi da ih je radio isti meštar. Mladen Mišić radio je i velike starinske ključeve za Knežev dvor. - Tu se sve radi na ruke. Od sirovog ključa ručno se izrađuju zupci i kanal. Slične sam ključeve izrađivao i za Pomorski muzej, Muzej Rupe... Rado bi proširio zanat na ono čime se njegova obitelj bavila u prošlosti. U Zagrebu mu je kolega našao cijelu kovačku radionicu. - Kako su moji kovači, a i sam često kujem i izrađujem starinske ključe, imam planove otvoriti kovačku radionicu. U povijesnoj jezgri Dubrovnika nema je gdje smjestiti jer radi u 13 četvornih metara. Najvjerojatnije će se prostor za nju naći u Konavlima odakle obitelj Mišić potječe.

ne of Dubrovnik’s particularities, the Mišić family locksmith’s shop has been located in the Old City for almost half a century. It is the working place of Mladen Mišić, who as a young boy learned the trade from his father. He spent his entire childhood in Bunić Square. The shop spreading on 13 square metres only was opened in the 1970s by the old blacksmith family Mišić of Konavle, which has been engaged in the trade for more than 500 years.

- I never had second thoughts about my profession. Having inherited the shop from my father, I have been here for as long as I can remember. I was almost born here – says Mladen Mišić, who now owns a valuable collection of old locks and keys. His father had begun to collect them, but Mladen has triplicated the collection, which now comprises 350 keys and some 60 old locks. - People know that I am a collector and they bring me keys. A few days ago an acquaintance brought me a sack full of small chest keys. He now has the locks which are 300 and even 400 years old. Having been replaced by new ones, they were thrown away. - When providing new locks and keys, people often throw away the old, which I happened to find in the garbage. My favourite item in the collection is a lock with a bell. It is not unlocked in the usual way. One has to turn the key three times in order to hear the sound of a clapper. After a few seconds, the key has to be turned in the opposite direction. The lock

Keeper of the City Keys was once installed on a sailor chest as a protection. If someone tried to open it, the bell would ring. I have two locks of the kind. The third lock of the kind was brought to me by the owner who did not know how to unlock it – says Mladen Mišić who is particularly fond of his key collection. Some of them are more than several centuries old. - I believe the oldest one to be 450 years old. I don’t know its purpose but, owing to its specific manufacture, it must have opened something important indeed. Their quite complex manufacture roughly reveals what the keys were used for. I have five or six antique City keys more than a hundred years old. One

The grooves and valleys are made by hand on the coarse key. I have manufactured similar keys for the Maritime Museum, the Rupe Museum, etc. Mladen Mišić would like to expand his business with his family’s old trade. A colleague of his found him a complete blacksmith’s shop in Zagreb.

- Bearing in mind the fact that I hail from a family of blacksmiths, and that I often forge and manufacture old-style keys, I am planning to open a blacksmith’s workshop. The shop of Mladen Mišić in the Old City is not large enough. He will most probably find the place for his blacksmith’s workshop in Konavle, where his family comes from.

tarinske su kuće i u Gradu i po selima imale slične komade namještaja. Bogatije su gradske kuće brojile izobilje svega, a vrijedni se namještaj dovozio brodovima iz drugih zemalja i krasio salone i spavaće sobe. Seoske su pak kuće imale malo, tek trpezu, škrinju, blanak, postelju i obvezno bar jedan buro, tu starinsku komodu sa škrabijicama i mjedenim ručkama. Buro je stajao na vidnom mjestu u kamari, iznad njega ogledalo, na njemu napica, u njemu bjankarija. Bio je napravljen od plemenita drva, čitav gladak da je ruka po njegovoj polituri klizila kao po živoj svili. Zaobljenih rubova i sa četiri prostrane ladice, koje su resile oslikane ptice i cvijeće, on je u unutrašnjosti čuvao probrane stvari, pomno složene i očuvane utihninom i mirisom lavandinog cvijeta. Mirisali su burali i po tajnovitom, blagom i neuhvatljivom dahu koji za sobom ostavlja čisto rublje. U njegovoj su unutrašnjosti bile složene spavaćice, sotokotule, rekamane napice, faculeti, dječji pasovi, kamižoti i misna roba, ona posebna, prožeta dahom nedjeljnih izlazaka kad starost odlazi u crkvu u najsvečanijoj odjeći s kralježom i ofičicom u rukama. Svaka je ladica burala bila namijenjena ukućanima po redoslijedu koji je u svojoj mudrosti i praktičnosti odredila domaćica. Ona je pažljivo, s obje ruke otvarala ladice, držeći mjedene ručke i pred njom se pokazivao bogati kućni izlog, bijel, uredan, mirisan da bi joj se lice u punini starinskog burala uvijek otvorilo poput cvijeta, jer ljudi i kućni predmeti dijele raspoloženja i život.

ld houses in the City and the villages had similar pieces of furniture. Richer city houses lived in opulence, and valuable pieces of furniture brought on ships from foreign countries adorned their lounges and bedrooms. Village houses, on the other hand, had just a few pieces of furniture – a table, a chest, a bench, a bed and at least one chest of drawers, this old fashioned commode with drawers and brazen handles. The chest of drawers stood in a noticeable place in the room and a mirror was placed above it. Covered with a napkin, it contained bed linen and underclothes. It was made of precious wood, and its polish was as smooth as silk. With rounded edges and four spacious drawers ornamented with painted birds and flowers, it contained fine things carefully folded and preserved by silence and lavender flower fragrance. Chests of drawers smelled of the secretive, sweet and elusive breath left behind clean linen. They contained nightgowns, underskirts, crocheted napkins, kerchiefs, children’s belts, bodices and festive clothes worn on Sundays, when old people go to church dressed in their finest garments with a rosary and prayer-book in their hands. Each drawer was reserved for a different household member, in the order which the mistress of the house determined wisely and practically. Carefully and with both hands, she would pull the

drawers out holding the brazen handles, and the luxurious, white, tidy and fragrant house shop-window opened up in front of her. The fullness of the antique chest of drawers always made her face open up like a flower, because people and pieces of furniture share their moods and lives. Above this commode, next to the mirror stood the framed pictures of saints, so that Our Lady and Jesus smilingly watched the whiteness and neatness with which the mistress of the house stacked and took out the linen lovingly and carefully. As wedding gifts, chests of drawers were taken into the bridegroom’s house, remaining there for many generations and keeping the old jewellery in a secret compartment. It was hidden under the linen in a little wooden box. When the mistress of the house opened it, a gold bead necklace, a signet-ring, earrings, corals and golden bracelets gave out their yellow light. Standing on cypress-wood floor boards, together with beds, home-made patchwork rugs, window curtains and the footsteps that came and went always in the same rhythm, the chest of drawers in time became a lodger in the house, and the wood of this precious piece of furniture became imbued with the soul and love of household members.

Satov i pr ič a j u pr iče Š

to je to – „uvijek ide naprijed, nikad se ne umara i ne vraća?“ Liječnik Branko Ðukić ovu je poslovicu čuo i zapamtio još u djetinjstvu, iako priznaje, pouku o nezaustavljivosti vremena, kao uostalom i svi mi, shvatio je puno godina kasnije. Da je zaljubljenik u satove jasno vam je čim uđete u njegovu ambulantu u Domu zdravlja. Umjesto hladnih instrumenata, iza stakla u vitrini ugledate budilice, zvonjarine, one starinske kakvih više nemate gdje kupiti, a čija je kvaliteta i danas neupitna. Na zidu je 40-ak godina stara kukavica, svaku punu uru otpjeva „Bečku krv“. - „Sve je počelo u najranijem djetinjstvu nastankom tehničkih igračaka,a po prirodi sam znatiželjan. Ispočetka sam bio autodidakt, ali moram spomenuti da sam odrastao u tehnički obrazovanoj familiji; otac mi je bio pčelar, a stariji brat je imao razne alate i strojeve za obradu drva i metala. U osnovnoj školi obožavao sam tehnički odgoj“, priča nam ovaj specijalist medicine rada. Prvi sat popravljao je kao šesnaestogodišnjak, kolegi koji je sa Švicarcem marke LIGA skočio u more. Nakon što ga je rastavio shvatio je da nema pomoći, mehanizam je zahrđao jer nije bio vodootporan. Fascinacija satovima nastavljena je i u studentskim danima. Zajedno s kolegama išao je u Trst u kupovinu. Dok su oni kupovali odjeću, on je, mladi student medicine, tražio alat i povećala za svoj hobi. Učio je po noći, a u stankama se odmarao uz satove, popravljao ih, rastavljao, proučavao i tako se odmarao od napornog učenja. - „Kao mlad liječnik nekoliko godina radio sam na Pelješcu, a kada bih tijekom kućnog posjeta spazio kakav stari sat pitao bih odakle je i koliko je star. To su bili stari američki satovi tipa Ansonia, 100 godina stari, koje bi jednom godišnje, po preporuci hodajućeg urara-amatera, podmazivali kokošjom perušinom umočenom u petrolej“, prisjeća se Branko Ðukić. Danas radi u Dubrovniku, ali i dalje obavlja kućne vizite po Pelješcu i Konavlima, samo što

su pacijenti satovi. Popravlja ih i vraća vlasnicima. Fascinantan je to hobi, svaki je sat priča za sebe. No, uvjerio se da i satovi pričaju priče. Ponekad u njima pronađe papiriće na kojima piše tko ih je i kada popravljao. Najstariji Ðukićev prethodnik, zasada, poruku je napisao 1926-te godine. Posljednjih osam godina dr. Ðukić brine o glavnom dubrovačkom satu, onome u gradskome zvoniku. U zvoniku je trenutačno 4-ti mehanizam i to iz 1926-te. Ništa neobično, jer tvornice su toranjskim satovima davale garanciju od 105 godina. U vrlo je dobrom stanju zahvaljujući Ðukićevu prethodniku, pokojnome Tonću Krasovcu. Sat je izložen naglim temperaturnim promjenama što uzrokuje širenje i skupljanje metala pa tako i nekoliko minuta kašnjenja ili žurenja dnevno. Gledajući svoje Quartz satove ljudi nerealno očekuju da će i zvonikov ići točno u minutu. Ipak, nekoliko puta godišnje i to je potrebno. Na Novu godinu ili otvaranje Dubrovačkih ljetnih igara, kada su oči javnosti uprte u brojke na zvoniku, Branko Ðukić obvezno dolazi narihtati sat. - „Zvonik je ekološki osviješten, jer je neko vrijeme tijekom Domovinskoga rata nestalo motornoga ulja pa smo ga podmazivali maslinovim uljem“, priča kroz smijeh samozatajni Dubrovčanin. Možda niste znali, ali Dubrovnik ima Udruženje Rolex entuzijasta. Predsjednik mu je Branko

Ðukić. Najdraži mu je sat, pogađate, Rolex iz 1965-te. Ima i veliku kolekciju Seiko ručnih satova i mogao bi dvije godine svaki dan mijenati sat, a da ne ponovi isti. Na pitanje je li teže liječiti ljude ili popravljati satove spremno odgovara: „Ljudska je anatomija jedna, a satova ima stotinjak vrsta.“

Story t e l l ing C lo ck s What is it – „it always goes forward,

never getting tired and never coming back?“ The physician Branko Ðukić heard and memorised this riddle in his childhood. However, he confesses that, like all of us, he understood the riddle’s moral about the unstoppability of time many years later. You can see that he is a lover of clocks the moment you enter his outpatient department at the Dubrovnik Health Centre. Behind the glass of his cabinet, instead of cold instruments, one can see old alarm clocks that can’t be bought any longer, and the quality of which is still indisputable. About forty-year old cuckoo clock on the wall plays the Vienna Spirit tune on the hour. „Everything began in my earliest childhood with the appearance of technical toys, and I am curious by nature. I was self-taught at first, but I must mention that I grew up in a technically educated family: my father was a bee-keeper, and my elder brother had all sorts

of tools and metal- and woodworking machinery. In elementary school I adored shop classes,“ says this industrial medicine specialist. He repaired his first watch as a sixteen-year old boy, when his school mate jumped into the sea wearing a LIGA Swiss wrist watch. Having dismantled the watch, he realised that it was beyond repair: it wasn’t waterproof and its mechanism become rusty. Branko Ðukić’s fascination with clocks and watches continued in his student days. Together with his colleagues he went shopping in Trieste. While they were buying clothes, the young medicine student was looking for tools and magnifying glasses for his hobby. He studied at night, and during the breaks he rested repairing, dismantling and studying clocks and watches. - „As a young physician I worked on the Pelješac Peninsula for several years. When, while making house calls, I spotted an old clock I asked where it came from and how old it was. They were the hundred-year-old American Ansonia clocks, which the owners lubricated with a chicken feather dipped into paraffin oil once a year, upon the recommendation of travelling amateur clockmaker,“ recalls Branko Ðukić. Working in Dubrovnik today, he still makes house calls in Pelješac and Konavle, except that his patientsnow are clocks. Having repaired them, he returns the clocks to their owners. It is a fascinating hobby, and every clock is special. He is convinced that clocks tell stories too. Sometimes he finds in them pieces of paper including the name of the person who repaired them and the

reparation date. Dr. Ðukić’s oldest predecessor, for the time being, wrote his note in 1926. For eight years, Dr. Ðukić has been in charge of the major Dubrovnik clock, the one in the city belltower. The bell-tower now houses its fourth clock mechanism from 1926. It is not unusual, because the manufacturers gave a 105-year warranty for their bell-tower clocks. The clock is in fine condition thanks to Ðukić’s predecessor, the late Tonći Krasovac. It is exposed to sudden changes of temperature which cause stretching and shrinkage, and also losing or gaining a few minutes per day. Looking at their Quartz watches, people unrealistically expect the bell-tower clock to be equally precise. However, the preciseness is necessary at least several times a year. On New Year’s Eve and at the Opening Ceremony of the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, when everyone looks at the bell-tower clock, Branko Ðukić comes unfailingly to adjust it. - „Our bell-tower is ecologically aware“, adds this unpretentious resident of Dubrovnik, smiling. „During the Croatian War of Independence we ran short of machine oil, so that we lubricated it with olive oil instead.“ You probably don‘t know it, but Dubrovnik has a Rolex Enthusiasts Society, and Branko Ðukić is its president. His favourite watch is, as you may guess, a 1965 Rolex. He also has a big collection of Seiko wrist watches, and he could wear a different watch every day for two years. When asked whether it is more difficult to heal people or to repair clocks and watches, he replies without hesitation: „There is only one human anatomy, and almost a hundred types of clocks and watches.“

Hotel Neptun Po l u s t o l j e t n a l e g e n d a

P

očetkom šezdesetih godina 20. stoljeća Dubrovnik se vrlo ozbiljno vraćao u svijet turizma (vrijedi se podsjetiti da je prije Drugog svjetskog rata Dubrovnik bio vodeće turističko središte i odredište na ovim prostorima). Sve što se tada događalo bilo je u cilju razvitka turističke privrede, tako da je tih godina, Grad bio, uistinu, veliko turističko gradilište. U planove godine 1959. koji su se odnosili za, u to vrijeme velikih 800 novih postelja, uklopila se i izgradnja Hotela Neptun. Novi hotelski objekt za kojeg je odlučeno da će nositi simbolično ime Neptun (rimski bog mora), počeo se graditi na izuzetno lijepom i atraktivnom rtu poluotoka Babin kuk u Lapadu, odakle se pruža čaroban pogled na Grebene, Daksu, Koločep, Svetog Andriju i dalje prema pučini u pravcu Italije, s južne strane prema Uvali Lapad, dok sa sjeverozapadne strane pogled seže prema Zatonu, Dubrovačkom primorju i dijelu elafitskih otoka. Na tom području prostirala se šuma i tvrde stijene, koje su kasnije dijelom pretvorene u površine za sunčanje kupača, dok je uz samu obalu Uvale Lapad išla šetnica sve do kupališta Sumratin. Na tom „rajskom“ mjestu izgrađen je Hotel Neptun, koji je svečano otvoren u poslijepodnevnim satima 13. svibnja 1961. godine. Bio je to, kako su pisale lokalne novine, objekt B kategorije sa 120 postelja i velikom suvremenom restauracijom koja je bila mnogo veća od potreba tadašnjeg

hotela, ali je to učinjeno za potrebe gostiju koji će boraviti u dva nova paviljona, koji su se planirali kasnije izgraditi kao dijelovi Hotela Neptun. Prvi direktor bio je ugledni dubrovački ekonomist Hinko Dragičević. Hotel je sezonski poslovao kao samostalno poduzeće i postizao odlične turističke i financijske rezultate. Kasnije su izgrađena dva planirana paviljona, a preuređena je i Villa Elita (objekt koji je podignut 1937. godine), čime je ponuda bila zaokružena na 500 kreveta, uređeni su noćni bar i drugi ugostiteljski sadržaji, veliki parking, šetnice... Mnogi Dubrovčani i njihovi gosti i danas se s nostalgijom sjećaju tog noćnog bara i prekrasne terase za ples, uz živu muziku. U kasnijim godinama, Hotel Neptun je izgubio samostalnost, jer je u procesu ondašnjih integracija u hotelijerstvu i turizmu, ušao u sastav najprije Hotelskog poduzeća Lapad, a kasnije Hotelsko - turističkog poduzeća Dubrovnik, u svjetskim razmjerima čuvene i uspješne hotelske kuće. Uspješno poslovanje nastavljeno je sve do početka Domovinskoga rata, a nakon ratnih strahota i nepogoda radio je samo dijelom kapaciteta uz postupno obnavljanje. Novo poglavlje u povijesti Hotela Neptun započelo je 31. prosinca 2003. godine kada kupnjom prelazi u vlasništvo Društva s ograničenom odgovornošću Importanne, koje u svom sastavu ima i veliki prodajno - poslovni centar u Zagrebu. Novi vlasnik, dr. sc. Ciril Zovko,

našijenac iz Kanade, uspješni poduzetnik, kupnjom se obvezao izvršiti dodatna ulaganja u objekt radi povećanja njegove kategorije s tri na četiri zvjezdice. Tu svoju datu obvezu je i izvršio na najbolji mogući način. Predviđeni zahvati su se odnosili na smještajni dio i brojne nove sadržaje, u što je uloženo 105 milijuna kuna. U kompleksu Importanne Resort, poznatijem kao Hotel Neptun, otvoren je i obnovljeni Hotel Ariston sa 115 soba, spomenuti Neptun ima 91 sobu (ukupno 206 soba), te zgrada nazvana Importanne suit koja ima 25 apartmana. Većina soba ima privatne balkone i pogled na more. Ponovno je adaptirana i uređena i prekrasna Villa Elita, koja zbog vrhunskih sadržaja i svega onoga što pruža bogatim turistima, postiže izuzetno visoke cijene na turističkom tržištu. Ova hotelska kuća danas zapošljava 150 ljudi (od kojih je 80 stalnih radnika), vrhunski obrazovanih, koji znaju i vole svoj posao, i dobro su plaćeni, a njihovo usavršavanje u struci i u učenju stranih jezika događa se redovito, svake godine, u kontinuitetu. Predsjednik Uprave, 34-godišnji vlasnikov sin, Dennis Zovko, zadovoljan je postignutim ukupnim rezultatima, a budući da hotel radi tijekom cijele godine, ozbiljno pomaže turizmu Dubrovnika u produženju turističke sezone.

Neptun Hotel A Half-Century Legend

I

n the early 1960 Dubrovnik was returning to the world of tourism very seriously (worth mentioning is that before World War II Dubrovnik was a major tourist destination in the region). All events at the time aimed at the development of tourist industry, so that the City was indeed a huge tourist construction site. The 1959 plans for the then impressive number of 800 new beds included the construction of Neptun Hotel. The new hotel, symbolically named after Neptune (god of the sea in Roman mythology), was constructed in the outstandingly beautiful and attractive cape on the Babin Kuk peninsula in Lapad. It offered magnificent views over the reefs and the islands of Daksa, Koločep and St Andrew, towards the open sea and Italy, the Bay of Lapad in the south, and Zaton, the Dubrovnik littoral and a part of the Elafite islands in the northwest. The site previously covered with trees and rocks was turned into sunbathing platforms, while a seaside promenade stretched from the Bay of Lapad to the Sumratin beach. Constructed in this “heavenly” place, the Neptun Hotel was opened in the afternoon of 13 May 1961. According to local newspapers, it was a four-star hotel with 120 beds and a spacious modern restaurant, which - although exceeding the then needs of the hotel - was also foreseen for the guests of the two new extensions that were to

44

be added to the Neptun Hotel later on. The renowned Dubrovnik economist Hinko Dragičević was the hotel‘s first director. As an independent company, the hotel developed a flourishing business during the tourist season and achieved outstanding tourist and financial results. The two planned extensions were constructed later and the Villa Elita (built in 1937) was renovated, so that the total number of beds was 500. Apart from the newly opened night club, the hotel offered various catering facilities, a large parking area, walking paths, etc. Many guests and residents of Dubrovnik remember with nostalgia that night club and the gorgeous dance terrace with live music. In the years that followed, the Neptun Hotel lost its independence. Following the then hotel and tourist integration, it became a part of the Lapad Hotel Company and later of the Dubrovnik Hotel and Tourist Company, the world renowned and successful hotel corporation. The business was successful till the beginning of the Croatian War of Independence. After the disastrous war the hotel operated only with a part of its capacities, while gradually restoring the sections that had been demolished. A new chapter in the hotel history began on 31 December 2003, when it was purchased by the Importanne Ltd., which also owns a huge trade and business centre in Zagreb. When buying

the hotel, its new owner Ciril Zovko, Sc. D., a successful Canadian businessman of Croatian origin, obliged himself to make additional investments so that the hotel could obtain a four-star rating. Mr. Zovko fulfilled his obligation in the best possible way. The improvements included the accommodation and many new facilities amounting to 105 million kunas. The Importanne Resort complex, better known as the Neptun Hotel, thus includes the newly restored Ariston Hotel with 115 rooms, the afore mentioned Neptun Hotel with 91 rooms (206 rooms altogether) and the Importanne Suite building with 25 apartments. The majority of rooms have private balconies and sea view. Owing to its top quality facilities for tourists with big pocketbooks, the stunning Villa Elita - which was additionally restored and furnished – reaches exceptionally high prices on the tourist market. The Importanne Resort has 150 highly educated employees (80 of whom work on fulltime basis), who are efficient and fond of their work, and also well-paid. Every year they continue to improve their technical training and their knowledge of foreign languages. Aged 34, Denis Zovko, the hotel owner’s son and chairman of the Board is satisfied with the total results. Open all the year round, the hotel contributes to the extension of tourist season in Dubrovnik. Zima 2010/11

PRIRODOSLOVNI MUZEJ DUBROVNIK

K

ada je prije stotinjak godina u Dubrovniku vidio preparat velike glave i repa tune, poznati prirodoslovac Spiridon Brusina zapisao je: „Vidjeti treba, i ponavljam: londonski i pariški bi se zavodi mogli dičiti ovakvim preparatima.“ Gigantska je tuna,jedan od tisuću eksponata Prirodoslovnoga muzeja Dubrovnik, ulovljena koncem 19.stoljeća u Hodilju (Hodiljama) kod Stona, a ovaj raritetni dermoplastični preparat izradio je drugi

poznati prirodoslovac, Dubrovčanin Baldo Kosić. Službeno, najmlađi je to dubrovački muzej, koji se u zgradu u Androvićevoj ulici, u povijesnoj gradskoj jezgri, uselio u ožujku 2009-te. No, povijest prirodoslovlja u Dubrovniku seže još u 1872. kada je otvoren Domorodni muzej (MUSEO PATRIO). Temelj mu je činila prirodoslovna zbirka ljekarnika i brodovlasnika Antuna Dropca pa i većina muzejskih eksponata potječe s kraja 19-og i početka 20-tog stoljeća, među kojima su najbrojniji oni iz zbirki puževa i školjkaša, minerala i ruda, ptica, morskih algi, okamina i riba.Sedam je osobito vrijednih prirodnina - herbarizirane alge Matije Botterija i Marije de Cattani, preparati silikatne spužve venerine košarice, preparat: glave tune, goleme morske kornjače sedmopruge usminjače, sredozemne medvjedice, vidre i preparati rijetkih ptica koje su nađene samo na dubrovačkom području. Kada na prvom katu zgrade ugledate  četiri velika preparata, drago vam je što ste u muzeju jer mnogima zasigurno ne bi bilo ugodno susresti takve primjerke u moru.  Riječ je o psini lisici, atlantskoj  psini, morskoj kornjači sedmoprugoj usminjači  i već spomenutoj glavi i repu tune. Gigantska je tuna svojevrsna zvijezda muzeja jer više od stotinu godina izaziva pozornost posjetitelja koji se čude i pitaju kolika je uistinu bila.

Nedavno su temeljem znanstvenih podataka procijenjene dimenzije tijela tune, kako bi se izradio model u prirodnoj veličini, koji će postati dio stalnog postava muzeja. A tuna je, vjerovali ili ne, bila duža od 2,5 metra i teža od 250 kilograma. Sastavni dio projekta su pedagoške radionice za srednjoškolce, jer se edukativnim programima ukazuje na status ove vrste u Jadranu, te na potrebu njezinog očuvanja i zaštite.Posebna je vrijednost sačuvanog dijela zbirke veći broj različitih vrsta koje kasnije nisu zabilježene na ovom području, pa čine dragocjenu dokumentaciju o stanju prirode s kraja 19.stoljeća. Muzejska građa uostalom svjedoči o promjenama biološke raznolikosti, urbanističkome razvoju Grada i cjelokupnome kulturnome nasljeđu. Srećom, postoji muzej, pa možete vidjeti kako izgleda sredoze-

aving seen the mount of big tuna head and tail in Dubrovnik a hundred years ago, the renowned natural scientist Spiridon Brusina wrote: „ A must see! I repeat: the institutes of London and Paris would be proud to have such mounts.“ One among the thousand Dubrovnik Natural Science Museum exhibits, the giant tuna was caught in the late 19th century in the village of Hodilje near Ston, while the rare dermo-plastic mount was made by another well-known natural scientist, the Dubrovnik born Baldo Kosić. Officially, it is the youngest Dubrovnik museum, which moved into its present day premises - located in Andrović Street in the Old City - in March 2009. However, the history of natural science in Dubrovnik goes back to 1872, when the National Museum (MUSEO PATRIO)

was opened. The museum was based on the natural science collection of the pharmacist and ship-owner Antun Drobac, so that the majority of the museum exhibits originate from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The largest in number are the exhibits from the collections of snails, shellfish, minerals, ores, birds, marine algae, petrified objects and fish. The seven extremely valuable items include the algae herbaria of Matija Botteri and Maria de Cattani, the Venus‘ flower basket silicate sponge mounts, the tuna head mount, the leatherback sea turtle mount, as well as the mounts of the Mediterranean Monk Seal, the otter and the rare birds which were found exclusively in the Dubrovnik area. When facing the four huge mounts exhibited on the first floor, one feels happy to be in a museum because seeing such specimens in the sea would be frightening indeed. They include the thresher shark, the Atlantic shark, Zima 2010/11

For more than a hundred years it has attracted attention of the visitors who have wondered and speculated about the tuna‘s actual size. The scientists have recently estimated the dimensions of its body, so that a life-size model will be made and exhibited in the museum. Believe it or not, the tuna was more than 2,5 metres long and was more than 250 kilograms in weight. This project will include secondary school workshops aiming to acquaint the students with the status of this species in the Adriatic sea and with the necessity of its protection. Especially valuable in the collection is a large number of species which were not found in this area afterwards, providing precious evidence of how the nature looked like in the late 19th century.

However, there have been other opportunities for mountain-climbing, organised by the Natural Science Museum, which always tries to be interesting, original and educative. Some time ago, the members of the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service caused much excitement climbing the roof of the building using their equipment. In order to come to the Natural Science Museum you need neither foreknowledge nor mountaineering equipment. The route is a simple one: if you walk from Gundulić Square past the green market, you will see the Jesuit steps and a banner with the inscription... and you will find yourselves in front of a new dimension of the Dubrovnik cultural heritage.

Luckily, there are places like this museum, where you can see how the Mediterranean Monk Seal, the otter and the huge bustard looked like. The latter is a bird which lived in Gospino Polje a hundred years ago, which you can nowadays seldom or almost never see in its natural environment. On the museum ground floor one can see the exhibition of the Croatian Biospeleological Society entitled The Living Speleological Treasure of the Dubrovnik Area, the result of many years of exploring the rich speleological sites in the Dubrovnik region. However, the people at the Natural Science Museum went a step further. They produced a model of a cave at a scale of 1:1 enabling the visitors to explore it using speleological equipment, helmets and head flashlights. They can thus recognise stalagmites, stalactites, bats, etc. Welcome

prvi sastav dubrovačkih trubadura The original line-up of the Dubrovnik Troubadours

P

rotekloga nas je ljeta napustio uzor svih dubrovačkih zabavljača Marko Brešković, član i suosnivač legendarnih Dubrovačkih trubadura, proslavljenih diljem svijeta. Od osnivanja Trubadura 1962. godine, Marko je uz Ðela Jusića i Luciana Capursa te Ladislava Padjena, Hama Hajdarhodžića i Boba Berdovića – članove izvorne postave, karakterističnim zabavljačkim stilom i vrhunskom vokalnom i instrumentalnom izvedbom stekao iznimnu međunarodnu popularnost, koja je kulminirala nastupom na Euroviziji 1968. pjesmom Jedan dan. Prva im je snimka, Sva u crvenom, snimljena u studiju Radio Dubrovnika, a prvi veliki uspjeh bila je pobjeda na Splitskom festivalu 1967. s “Ulicama moga grada” (Luda mladost). Marko je kao glumac nastupao u predstavama Dubrovačkih ljetnih igara, te u filmu Željka Senečića Dubrovački suton. Kao velik i nepopravljiv zaljubljenik u jazz tijekom 90-ih godina prošloga stoljeća u programu je Radio Dubrovnika vodio specijaliziranu emisiju o jazzu. Brojni Dubrovčani i gosti Grada Marka će pamtiti i kao vještog ugostitelja, koji je sedamdesetih godina prošloga stoljeća vodio popularni “Suvenir-bar”, a potom i zacijelo najpoznatiji dubrovački Hardjazz caffe Trubadur. Tu se svake ljetne večeri (nerijetko i zimi!) čula “živa” svirka – uglavnom jazz-standardi (American

song book) i sve ono što se u takav kontekst moglo uklopiti, a središnji lik svih izvedaba, uz njegov neizostavni kontrabas, bio je trubadur Marko. Uz njega su nerijetko muzicirali, često i znalački među sobom izmjenjujući instrumente, njegovi sinovi Tonči i Nikola, a gdjekad i najmlađi Vlaho, inače vrsni bubnjar. Nije bilo neobično zateći ih pred “Trubadurom” kako s prijateljima glazbenicima iz Grada i odsvukud, sviraju i “usred podneva”, ako je bila neka “festa” ili su jednostavno Stradunom šetale veće skupine turista, želeći im Grad predstaviti u punom svjetlu i zvuku! Za svoje je Trubadure Marko znao naglasiti da su nastali na korijenima romanske, a ne anglo-saksonske muzike, misleći pritom poglavito na Italiju i pjevače kakvi su bili Peppino Di Capri, Renato Carazone ili Adriano Chellentano. Tako je i prva trubadurska snimka zapravo prepjev pjesme koju je skladao Talijan Marino Marina Tutta in roso. Uslijedile su Ðelove obrade poznatih dalmatinskih pjesama u cha-cha ritmu ili swingu, a prvi pravi trubadurski autorski hit bila je Oj, djevojko, dušo moja, koja je već tada bila ono što bi u svijetu danas zvali etno, pa i “worldmusic”. Još će mnogi naraštaji u Dubrovniku prepričavati zanosne plesne večeri u Restoranu Jadran u atriju Samostana svete Klare, gdje su Dubrovački tru-

baduri nastupali od 1962. do 1967. Te godine dolazi već opisana pobjeda na prestižnom Međunarodnom festivalu u Splitu, a Marko s Trubadurima počinje internacionalni pohod i seriju nastupa u najpoznatijim europskim i svjetskim dvoranama, televizijskim spektaklima i festivalima. Marko je znao posebno istaknuti kako su Dubrovački trubaduri obavili veliku misiju nastupajući više od dvadeset godina pred hrvatskim iseljeništvom u Australiji, Južnoj i Sjevernoj Americi, po cijeloj Europi: “Sretali smo publiku koja je već treća generacija u inozemstvu i zaboravili su naš jezik. Međutim, znali su riječi naših pjesama. Neki su uz naše pjesme popravili svoj “broken” hrvatski. Muzika i sport mogu više učiniti nego bilo kakva politika.” Trubadurske vječne skladbe: Noćna muzika, Pusti da ti leut svira, Jedan dan, Marijana, Dok palme njišu grane, Dalmatinski lero, Luda mladost, Adio Mare, Mi prepuni smo ljubavi... mnogi će još dugo pjevati ulicama našega Grada. U odjeku tih ulica raspoznat će se i Markov glas...

arko Brešković, a role model for all Dubrovnik entertainers, member and co-founder of the legendary and world famous band The Dubrovnik Troubadours, passed away last summer. From the band’s foundation in 1962, owing to his distinctive entertaining style and outstanding vocal and instrumental performance, Marko – together with the members of the original line-up Ðelo Jusić, Luciano Capurso, Ladislav Padjen, Hamo Hajdarhodžić and Bobo Berdović - won huge international popularity, which culminated with the band’s appearance at the Eurovision Zima 2010/11

Marko’s voice will live in the streets of our City... glo-Saxon music, bearing in mind Italy in particular and the singers such as Peppino Di Capri, Renato Carazone and Adriano Chellentano. Terefore, the first song which The Troubadours recorded was the arrangement of the song by the Italian composer Marino Marina Tutta in roso. It was followed by Ðelo Jusić’s arrangements of the well-known Dalmatian songs in the rhythm of cha cha cha and swing. The Troubadours’ first real authorial hit was the song entitled Oj, djevojko, dušo moja, which at the time already belonged to the style now called ethno, and even world music.

Song Contest 1968 with the song Jedan dan. Their first recording Sva u crvenom was made in the Dubrovnik Radio studio, and their first major success was the victory at the 1967 Split Festival with the song Ulicama moga grada (Luda mladost). As an actor Marko appeared in the Dubrovnik Summer Festival plays and in the Željko Senečić film entitled Dubrovački suton. A great lover of jazz, he ran a jazz programme on the Dubrovnik Radio in the 1990s. Winter 2010/11

Numerous residents and guests of Dubrovnik will remember Marko as a successful manager of the popular Souvenir Bar in the 1970s, and later of Dubrovnik’s most popular Hard Jazz Café Troubadour. This is the place when on summer nights (and often in winter!) one could listen to live music – mainly jazz standards (American Song Book) along with everything that fitted into that context, and Marko the troubadour with his indispensable double bass was the heart of all performances. He often jammed with his sons Tonći and Nikola, who were occasionally joined by Marko’s youngest son Vlaho, an excellent drummer. It was not unusual to see them playing in front of the Troubadour Café with their friends, musicians from Dubrovnik and from other parts of the world, also at midday on some festive occasion, or when they merely wished to present the City at its best to larger groups of tourists who promenaded along Stradun!

Many generations will continue to talk about the enchanting daning parties at the Jadran Restaurant in St Claire’s Convent Atrium, where The Dubrovnik Troubadours performed from 1962 – 1967. It was the year of the afore mentioned victory at the perstigious International Split Festival, after which Marko and The Troubadours began to perform extensively at the world’s most renowned concert halls, festivals and in TV programmes. Marko liked to emphasize that The Dubrovnik Troubadours completed a major mission performing for the Croatian emigrants in Australia, South and North America and Europe for more than twenty years: „We happened to meet the third generation imigrants who forgot the Croatian langage. However, they knew the lyrics of our tunes, and some of them improved their ‘broken’ Croatian thanks to our songs. Music and sports can accomplish more than any kind of politics.“ Many people will continue to sing The Troubadours’ eternal songs such as Noćna muzika, Pusti da ti leut svira, Jedan dan, Marijana, Dok palme njišu grane, Dalmatinski lero, Luda mladost, Adio Mare, Mi prepuni smo ljubavi… While these songs resound in the streets of Dubrovnik, people will recognise Marko’s voice… Welcome

Mark Th Stranci koji to više nisu

Englez u Dubrovniku

Marka Thomasa sam upoznao tijekom pripremanja prvog broja WELCOM-a (2001.) kao njegov učenik u Inlingue.Kako se poduka održavala u uredu Turističke zajednice Grada Dubrovnika,na stolu oko nas su uvijek bili brojni prospekti koji su jako privlačili Marka. Sve ga je zanimalo pa me često nešto zapitkivao, a najviše smo pričali o sljedećem Welcomu koji ga je jako zainteresirao zbog brojnih tema o dubrovačkoj prošlosti i njegovom danas. Mark je tada sramežljivo govorio hrvatski, bolje rečeno dubrovački, kojeg je naučio od punice, a tema je bilo napretek. Dvije godine kasnije prekinili smo poduku i jako se rijetko viđali. Obradovao sam se kad sam vidio da je pokrenuo „The Dubrovnik Times“, a još više kad je u Moskaru Dubrovačkog vjesnika počeo pisati, izuzetno čitanu i zanimljivu kolumnu Englez u Dubrovniku. Zbog svega toga mi je izuzetno drago da ćemo, umjesto klasičnog razgovora, baš u ovom dvadesetom, jubilarnom broju, i u ovoj rubrici, objaviti dio njegove kolumne Englez u Dubrovniku.

“K

ad sam prvi put došao u Dubrovnik, planirao sam ostati godinu dana. U to vrijeme sam živio i radio u gužvi i jurnjavi Londona pa je godina dana u miru i tišini izgledala kao dobra ideja. Pozdravio sam se sa svojim prijateljima i rodbinom vjerno im obećavajući da ćemo se vidjeti za godinu dana kad završi moj dugi odmor. Moja žena i ja smo se dogovorili da ćemo, nakon što prođe godina dana, sjesti za stol i porazgovarati o tome što ćemo dalje raditi i gdje ćemo dalje živjeti. Devet godina je prošlo i mi još uvijek nismo o tome razgovarali. Prvi posjet Gradu izgledao je kao živa razglednica. Kombinacija Grada s krovovima od terakote i blistavog plavog mora još i dan danas me zadivljuje. Samuel Johnson je jednom rekao da ‘Onaj koji se umorio od Londona, umorio se od života’. Isto se može reći i kad gledate Dubrovnik – nikad se ne možete umoriti od tog pogleda. Integrirati se u lokalno društvo bio je sljedeći izazov pa sam imao konfuzni početak. S prvim okusom dubrovačkog mentaliteta ispod mog remena, krenuo sam dalje. Sljedeći kamen spoticanja bio je jezik. Kad sam prvi put čuo hrvatski zazvučao mi je kao da su talijanski i ruski jezik upali u mikser i rezultat te kombinacije je stvorio hrvatskog govornika s tečnim jezikom. Dubrovčani, imaju sklonost govoriti mnogo glasnije i s puno više pokreta rukama nego Englezi. Ovo sve može biti jako zbunjujuće za turiste kad

ugledaju dvoje ljudi kako živo viču jedan prema drugom dok uživaju u kavi. Iako može izgledati i zvučati kao da se svađaju oko neke životno važne teme, u najvećem broju slučajeva oni samo razgovaraju o nogometnoj utakmici prethodne večeri ili o vremenu. U stvari, što su teme razgovora više svakodnevne, glasnije se o njima priča. Ako vidite da ljudi šapuću, tada znajte da razgovaraju o nečem ozbiljnom. Dok je čaj u 17 sati u Engleskoj poput institucije, ustvari mnogi kafići i barovi izvan Londona uopće ne služe kavu, brazilsko zrno je ovdje broj jedan. Postoji gotovo cijela kultura organizirana oko rituala ispijanja kave. Unutar Grada vidjet ćete osnivače ‘’kava klubova’’,stare gospòđe i gospare kako sjede na Stradunu i piju svoju kavu dok ‘’vježbenici’’ tj.pripadnici mlađe generacije piju kavu po kafićima u pokrajnim ulicama. Poslovi se sklapaju za vrijeme kave, stvaraju se prijateljstva, problemi se rješavaju, upoznavaju se novi ljudi. Jedan ‘’lokalac’’ mi je jednom ispričao priču o odvjetniku u Dubrovniku koji nije imao svoj ured nego je sve svoje poslove obavljao u kafićima u Gradu. Turisti me obično pitaju kad ovdje ljudi rade kad su kafići stalno puni. Kad sam prvi put došao ovdje s namjerom da tu živim, bio sam iznenađen, čak i pomalo ljut na ljude koji su po cijeli dan samo pili kave, zbog toga što na takvo nešto ja nisam navikao. Sada, nakon nekog vremena što sam ovdje, ne bih nizašto propustio pauzu za kavu, iako još uvi-

jek ponekad uživam u mom čaju u 17 sati popodne. Sve stvari se mijenjaju i kako je Gail Sheehy rekla - ‘’Ako se ne mijenjamo, ne rastemo.Ako ne rastemo, ustvari ne živimo.’’

was happy to see that he started The Dubrovnik Times, particularly when he also began to write the widely red and interesting column entitled An Englishman in Dubrovnik in the Dubrovnik Vjesnik’s Moskar. These are the reasons why I am so pleased to publish a part of his column An Englishman in Dubrovnik particularly in this jubilee 20th edition, instead of a classical interview. «When I first came to Dubrovnik, I planned to spend one year there. At that time I lived and worked in London at a hectic pace, so that a year spent in peace and quiet seemed like a very good idea. I said goodbye to my friends and family promising to see them in a year’s time after my long holiday. My wife and I agreed that after that we would sit and discuss what to do and where to live afterwards. Nine years later, we still haven’ had that conversation. My first visit to Dubrovnik looked like a living postcard. The city’s image with its terracotta roofs and glittering azure sea has continued to amaze me up to this day. Samuel Johnson once said: ‘When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life’. This also applies to Dubrovnik – one can never get tired of watching it. My next challenge was to integrate into the local society, and I had a confusing beginning. Having tasted the Dubrovnik mentality, I went on. The following stumbling block was the language. When I first heard Croatian it sounded like the Italian and the Russian languages put into a mixer, and the combination resulted in my fluent Zima 2010/11

An Englishman in Dubrovnik

I met Mark Thomas while preparing the first edition of Welcome magazine (2001) as his Inlingue student. The tuition took place at the Dubrovnik Tourist Board premises, and we were always surrounded by numerous brochures which Mark found very interesting. He wished to know everything, asked many questions, and we talked mainly about the next Welcome edition that intrigued him because of many themes on Dubrovnik’s past and present. At the time Mark was quite shy when speaking Croatian, to be more precise, the Dubrovnik dialect, which he learned from his mother-inlaw. And there were so many things to talk about. Two years later the tuition ended, and we seldom saw each other.

Croatian. The people of Dubrovnik tend to speak much louder and gesticulate much more than the English people do. All this can be quite confusing for the tourists watching two local people who shout bubbly to each other while enjoying their coffee. Although it may seem that they are quarrelling about some essential issue, in most cases they merely talk about the last night’s football match or about weather. Actually the more everyday the themes of the conversation are, the louder people talk about them. If you see the people whispering, you can be sure that they are talking about something serious. While the five o’clock tea in England is like an institution – many cafés and bars outside London actually don’t serve coffee at all - the Brazilian coffee beans are number one here. There is almost an entire culture of coffee drinking ritual. In the Old City you can see the founders of ‘coffee clubs’, elderly ladies and gentlemen sitting in Stradun and drinking their coffee, while ‘the trainees’, i.e. the younger generation members have their coffee at the side-street cafés. Over a cup of coffee people make deals, make friends, solve problems and meet new people. One of the ‘locals’ told me a story of a Dubrovnik lawyer who had no office and managed his affairs at the Old City cafés. Tourists often ask me when these people work, seeing the cafés which are always full. When I first came to Dubrovnik planning to live there, I was surprised and even a bit angry at Winter 2010/11

the people who spent the entire day drinking their coffees, because I wasn’t used to that. Now, having spent some time here, I wouldn’t miss my coffee break for the world, although I still enjoy my five o’clock tea now and then. All things change, and, as Gail Sheehy put it ‘If we don’t change, we don’t grow. And if we don’t grow, we actually don’t live’.”

DUBROVČANIN U KRALJEVSKOM KLUBU

“Košarkaš s lijevom i desnom rukom”

T

ehnika playmakera, mekana ruka i impozantna visina, plus talent i brzina te izuzetna motorika - to su sve odlike jučer najvećeg talenta, a danas već jednog od najboljih hrvatskih košarkaša. Ante Tomić je visok 217 centimetara. Od siječnja ove godine je član Real Madrida. Prvi je Dubrovčanin u Kraljevskom klubu, deveterostrukom prvaku Europe. U redove najtrofejnijeg europskog kluba stigao je nakon igranja za Košarkaški klub Zagreb. Košarku je Ante počeo igrati u Košarkaškom klubu Dubrovnik. Prvi trener mu je bio Pero Jejina, a prvi košarkaški trening je odradio s osam godina, 1995. godine. U Košarkaški klub Zagreb odlazi 2002. godine te s njim osvaja drugo mjesto na Kadetskom prvenstvu Hrvatske, a kao junior naslov prvaka te je izabran za najboljeg juniora Hrvatske. - Tomić će biti naš novi Krešimir Ćosić napisali su tada. Iako mršav za poziciju centra, nedostatak kilograma nadoknađivao je odličnom tehnikom u borbi s protivničkim, daleko težim centrima. - On je najbolji igrač Zagreba - isticali su mnogi košarkaški treneri. Potvrda toga je stigla u vidu trofeja - MVP regionalne lige. Tomić je u sezoni 2008./2009. bio najkorisniji igrač ligaškog dijela lige. - Nagrada godi, ali nisam pretjerano zadovoljan jer je Zagreb ostvario loš plasman - kazao je na kraju te sezone. U novoj sezoni, nakon prvog dijela, ponovno je MVP, najkorisniji igrač lige: drugi strijelac, prvi skakač. Ali, ovaj put je itekako zadovoljan jer je Zagreb vodeći sastav lige. - Može on igrati i u NBA ligi - isticalo se još u ljeto 2007. godine. Godinu dana poslije, 2008., Tomić je izabran u drugom krugu NBA drafta. Izabrao ga je Utah Jazz. - On je budućnost kluba - izjavio je tom prilikom Kevin O’Connor, glavni menadžer Utah Jazza. Ipak, ostao je u Zagrebu, u Europi.

- Bit će vremena za NBA - kazao je. Laskavi naslovi najboljeg igrača regionalne lige i naslov pobjednika Kupa Hrvatske rezultirali su pozivom iz Madrida. Košarkaški klub Zagreb nije mogao odbiti izdašnu ponudu Real Madrida, bogatog španjolskog kluba te je Dubrovčanin osam dana od posljednjeg nastupa za Zagreb, 24. siječnja 2010.

imao debi u dresu Kraljevskog kluba. Unatoč svemu ranije navedenom na debi u dresu A reprezentacije Hrvatske trebao je pričekati. Bio je među kandidatima za nastup na Olimpijskim igrama u Pekingu, ali dobio je virozu te nije nastupio. Iako je godinu dana poslije Pekinga, na Mediteranskim igrama u Pescari, nastupajući za B reprezentaciju Hrvatske osvojio zlatnu medalju i bio ponajbolji igrač, nije otišao s A reprezentacijom tog ljeta na Europsko prvenstvo u Poljsku. Debi na velikim međunarodnim natjecanjima dočekao je na Svjetskom prvenstvu u Turskoj ovoga ljeta i to protiv najjače reprezentacije SAD-a. Unatoč porazu od SAD-a s 28 koševa razlike, ostavio je više nego dobar dojam. Lamara Odoma, centra LA Lakersa, NBA prvaka, Tomić podsjeća malo na Pau Gasola, španjolskog reprezentativca, koji mu je suigrač u LA Lakersima. Tomića je pohvalio i Tyson Chandler, centar Dallas Mavericksa.

- Momak ima budućnost, puno toga obećava. Zna se kretati za visokog igrača, ima i lijevu i desnu ruku, odlične poluhoroke i pred njim je zaista svijetla budućnost. Naravno, i u NBA ligi – kazao je Chandler, koji je tako ponovio sve ono što je o Tomiću napisano prije nekoliko godina.

playmaker technique, soft hand, imposing height, talent, speed and outstanding motoric – are the attributes of the greatest talent of yesterday and one of the best presentday Croatian basketball players. Ante Tomić is 217 centimetres tall. From this January he has been a member of Real Madrid. He is the first Dubrovnik player in the royal club which has won the European Championship nine times. Ante Tomić joined the most successful European club after playing for the Zagreb basketball club.

Ante began to play basketball in the Dubrovnik basketball club. His first coach was Pero Jejina, and he had his first practice session in 1995, at the age of eight. In 2002 he went to the Zagreb basketball club, with which he won the second place in the Croatian Cadet Championship that same year. After that, playing as a junior, he won both the Championship and the best Croatian junior title. - Tomić will be our new Krešimir Ćosić – was one of the comments at the time. Although thin for the centre position, he compensated the lack of kilograms with his excellent technique playing against the opposing teams’ far heavier centres. He is the best Zagreb player – claimed many basketball coaches. That was confirmed by the MPV regional league trophy. In the season 2008/2009 Tomić was the best performing player in the League. Zima 2010/11


A NATIVE OF DUBROVNIK IN THE ROYAL CLUB - The award is flattering, but I am not completely satisfied because Zagreb was poorly ranked – said he at the end of that season. - After the first part of the new season Ante Tomić was again the League’s most valuable player: second best scorer and best jumper. This time, however, he is very satisfied because Zagreb is the League’s top ranked team. Already in the summer of 2007 people claimed that he was capable of playing

Playing basketball with both left and right hands ball club could not refuse the generous in the NBA League too. A year later, in 2008, Tomić was selected by Utah Jazz in the NBA second-round draft. - He is the future of the club – claimed the Utah Jazz General Manager Kevin O’Connor on that occasion. Ante Tomić, nevertheless, stayed in Zagreb, in Europe. - I still have time to play in the NBA – said he. The flattering best regional league player title and the Croatian Cup Winner title resulted in the invitation from Madrid. The Zagreb basket-

offer of the rich Spanish club Real Madrid, and, eight days after his last play for Zagreb on 24 January 2010, the Dubrovnik basketball player debuted wearing the royal club kit. In spite of the above-mentioned facts, Ante Tomić had to wait for his debut in the Croatian national team. He was one of the candidates selected to appear at the Beijing Olympic Games, but a virosis prevented him to do so. Although he won gold medal and was the best player in the B Croatian national team at the Mediterranean Games in Pescara a year after Beijing, Ante Tomić was not invited to play in the A national team in the European Championship in Poland that summer. He eventually made his debut in the World Championship in Turkey this summer, playing against the strongest national team, that of the USA. In spite of a 28-points defeat, Ante Tomić left a very good impression. Lamar Odom, the centre of LA Lakers, the NBA champions, said that Tomić reminded him of Pau Gasol, a member of the Spanish national team and his team mate in LA Lakers. The Dallas Mavericks centre Tyson Chandler also spoke highly of Ante Tomić. - The boy has a future and promises a lot. As a tall player he knows how to move, he uses both his left and right hands, has excellent semi-sky hooks, and really has fine prospects. Of course, in the NBA league too – said Chandler, who thus repeated everything that had been written about Tomić several years ago.

Andrija Habulin

Habulin kao trener na svjetskom prvenstvu u Parizu 1979. godine. Te je godine Kovačević osvojio 3. mjesto. Habulin as a coach in the World Championship in Paris, 1979. That year Kovačević was ranked third.

N

akon što smo odslužili vojni rok, general Janko Bobetko, tadašnji zapovjednik vojne oblasti, pozvao je Sulejmana Muratovića i mene, te rekao: “Ako ne želite biti u rezervi dok sam živ, morate u Dubrovniku pokrenuti folklor i judo.” Tako je počelo. Muratović je pokrenuo folklor, a ja judo - prisjetio se Andrija Habulin događaja s kraja 50-ih godina prošloga stoljeća. - Preko naših veza u Londonu, dubrovačke obitelji Sorgo, te suradnje s dubrovačkim entuzijastima Vlahom Lučićem, Antunom Napicom, dr. Markovićem, Markom Grošetom, Pavom Mitrovićem i drugima, organizirali smo prvu prezentaciju juda na ovim prostorima, i to u Cavtatu. Doveli smo čuvenog nizozemskog judaša Esinga i trenera Van der Eista. Taj prvi seminar, koji je održan na cavtatskom plivalištu, trajao je deset dana. Postavili smo drvene pontone i na njih par strunjača, koje smo posudili od gimnastičkih klubova, a ono što je nedostajalo, pokrili smo praznim vrećama od brašna. Tako je bilo te 1960. godine - prepričao je događaj od prije točno 50 godina danas 73-godišnji Andrija Habulin. Rođen je u Bedekovčini 1937., a od te 1960. godine njegov život vezan je za Dubrovnik. Habulin je začetnik borilačkih sportova u Dubrovniku i okolici, inicijator, pokretač i osnivač, uz još nekoliko sportskih entuzijasta, Judo kluba Dubrovnik, koji je u svom začetku imao i sekciju karatea te ju-jitsua. Od samog osnivanja kluba, pa do unatrag nekoliko godina, bio je trener koji je odgojio nebrojeno mnogo uzornih sportaša i sportašica. - Svih ovih godina judo je u Dubrovniku Winter 2010/11

treniralo više od 6.000 Dubrovčana kazao je Habulin koji je najzaslužniji za brojne uspjehe koji su postignuti kako u muškoj, tako i u ženskoj konkurenciji u svim dobnim kategorijama, pojedinačno i ekipno u domaćoj i međunarodnoj konkurenciji. Bio je trener kako judo reprezentacije bivše države, tako i Republike Hrvatske. - Već 1968. godine, dakle, nakon samo dvije godine od osnutka kluba (registriran je 17. travnja 1966. godine), imali smo državnog prvaka, pa su nas ljudi u Gradu počeli shvaćati ozbiljnije. U početku nisu imali sluha, judo im je bio nepoznanica. Sjećam se kad smo na samom početku rada kluba organizirali demonstraciju kod Orlandova stupa uoči otvaranja Dubrovačkih ljetnih igara, ljudi su komentirali “kako je to neki folklor, koji je došao izvana!” Habulin, koji je nositelj crnog pojasa 8. DAN u judu, 5. DAN u ju-jutisu te 4. DAN u karateu, s judom se prvi put susreo kao 14-godišnjak na seminaru u Zagrebu. - Odmah sam zavolio judo. Sjećam se, učio nas je japanski natjecatelj Nacui, prvi svjetski prvak u otvorenoj kategoriji, po kojemu smo poslije i nazvali dubrovački klub. Da, prvo ime dubrovačkog kluba je bilo Judo klub Nacui. U Dubrovniku, nakon seminara u Cavtatu, formirali smo sekciju 1961. godine. Radili smo tada u Hotelu Excelsior. Shvatio sam to kao zabavu za Grad. Vidio sam da se djeca vole igrati, valjati po strunjačama i kroz zabavu, učio sam ih judo. Prva generacija judaša, kazao je, bila je temelj dubrovačkog juda. - Tu su bili dr. Cikatić, Mitrović, Viđen, zatim Trosman i Škerlj, danas poznati slikari, koji su u to vrijeme bili gimnastičari, ali kako im je klub prestao s radom, nastavili su raditi s nama. Imali smo, takoreći, i svoj glazbeni sastav jer u Poklisarima su svi članovi bili judaši. Tako se judo uvlačio i uvukao pod kožu Gradu, a početkom 70-ih dobili smo prvi put pomoć od gradskih tvrtki. Baš tada smo imali nadarenu generaciju koja će kasnije ostvariti velike uspjehe. Svi znaju danas za Gržetića, Zekića, Spačeka, za Nadu Duš... prvaci ondašnje Zima 2010/11

ANDRIJA HABULIN

By Tonči Vlašić

The Father of Judo države s reprezentacijom su osvajali i europske medalje. Počeli smo tih godina organizirati državna prvenstva, jake turnire... Osjetio sam da Dubrovnik voli momčadi, ekipne sportove, što je posljedica duge tradicije vaterpola i Jugovih rezultata. Grad tako diše! Možeš imati pojedinačnog prvaka Europe, ali to ne znači puno, ako nemaš jaku ekipu. Stoga sam radio na stvaranju jake momčadi. Sedamdesetih godina, kad vaterpolo nije osvajao medalje, mi smo bili ti koji smo osvojili preko pet stotina državnih medalja, državna prvenstva... A za to ostvariti nije dovoljan samo trener jer trener je dobar onoliko koliko dobre ljude ima - zaključio je Habulin.

A

fter we had completed our military service, General Janko Bobetko, the then military district commander, invited Sulejman Muratović and me and said: «If you don’t wish to remain reservists as long as I live, you must start folklore and judo in Dubrovnik». That’s how it began. Muratović started folklore, and I judo – said Andrija Habulin recalling the events in the late 1950s. - Through our contacts in London, the Dubrovnik family Sorgo, and the collaboration with Dubrovnik enthusiasts Vlaho Lučić, Antun Napica, Dr. Marković, Marko Grošeta and Pavo Mitrović, we organised the first judo presentation in the region, to be more precise, in Cavtat. We invited the famous Dutch judo wrestler Esing and coach Van der Eist. The first seminar, which took place at the Cavtat swimming pool, lasted ten days. We installed wooden platforms, covered them with several mats which we borrowed from local gyms, and covered the remaining space with empty flour sacks. This is how Andrija Habulin, aged 73, describes the events that took place in 1960, precisely 50 years ago. He was born in Bedekovčina in 1937. From 1960 on, his life has been connected with Dubrovnik. The originator of Winter 2010/11

in Dubrovnik martial sports in Dubrovnik and its surroundings, Habulin, together with several sports enthusiasts, initiated and founded the Dubrovnik Judo Club, which also included the karate and ju jitsu sections. During his tenure as coach, from the club’s foundation up to several years ago, he brought up a huge number of fine sportsmen and sportswomen. - All these years more than 6,000 people of Dubrovnik have had judo practice sessions – said Habulin, who is most responsible for numerous successes both in men’s and women’s, individual and group competitions in all age groups, at home and abroad. He coached judo national teams of the former state and of the Republic of Croatia. - Already in 1968, only two years after the club’s foundation, which had been officially registered on 17 April 1966, we had a national champion. That is when the people in Dubrovnik began to understand us more seriously. At the beginning they had no interest in judo because they were not familiar with it. I remember that soon after the club’s opening we organised a demonstration by the Orlando Column on the eve of the Dubrovnik Summer Festival opening. The people believed it to be „a foreign folklore!“ The owner of the black belt 8th dan rank in judo, 5th dan in ju jitsu and 4th dan in carate, Habulin met with judo for the first time as a fourteen year old boy at a seminar taking place in Zagreb. - I immediately became fond of judo. I remember that our coach was the Japanese competitor Nacui, the first open category world champion, after whom we later named our Dubrovnik club. That’s right. The first name of the Dubrovnik club was the Nacui Judo Club. After the aforementioned seminar in Cavtat, we formed the Dubrovnik section in 1961. At the time we worked at the Excelsior Hotel. I understood that to be a kind of entertainment for the City.

I saw that the children enjoyed playing and rolling on the mats, and I taught them judo through fun. The first generation of judo wrestlers was the foundation of the Dubrovnik judo, said Andrija Habulin. - It included Dr. Cikatić, Mitrović, Viđen, the nowadays renowned painters Trostman and Škerlj, who were gymnasts at the time and who joined us after the closing of their club. We, so to say, also had our own band, because all members of the Poklisari were judo wrestlers. That is how judo got under the City’s skin, so that in the early 1970s we for the first time got financial support from the city companies. It was the time when we had a talented generation that became extremely successful later on. Today everybody knows Gržetić, Zekić, Spaček, Nada Duš..., champions of the former state who were winning European medals as the national team members. In the years that followed we began to organise national championships and major tournaments… I felt that Dubrovnik was fond of team sports, which was the consequence of its long water polo tradition and of Jug results. Such was the atmosphere of the City! You can have individual European champions, but that doesn’t mean much if you don’t have a strong team. That is the reason why I worked on creating a strong team. In the 1970s, when water polo failed to win medals, we were the ones who won more than five hundred national medals, national championships… In order to achieve such results, you need more than a coach. The value of a coach equals the value of his people – concluded Andrija Habulin.

Torta v od

Rogaca R

ogaču godi topla mediteranska klima, ali ne podnosi dobro preveliku količinu vode. Oblikuje arhitekturu prostora gdje god je stasao. Mnogi pokušaji kultivirane sadnje nisu baš uspijevali. Stari Dubrovčani znaju da najbolje uspijevaju oni koje ne diraš dok se zameću... kasnije ih možeš navrći i „pripitomiti“ da bi ti dali plod, nakon dvije do tri godine. Mahune rogača odlična su hrana. Sladak i mirisan je njegov plod. Tamnosmeđe mahune su bogate šećerom, bjelančevinama, vitaminom A i onima iz B skupine, te nizom važnih minerala. Rogač je bogat pektinom koji pomaže probavi. Ne sadrži masnoću. Kalorijska vrijednost mu je za 2/3 manja nego u čokoladi. Pržen i samljeven može poslužiti kao zamjena za kavu ili kakao. Koristi se za pripremu različitih slatkiša i pića. U prehrani je najbolje i najjednostavnije upotrebljavati fino mljeven rogačev prah (poput kakaa), s kojim se mogu napraviti ukusni i zdravi topli “čokoladni” napitci, a također se njime može raznim pudinzima i kolačima dati fina aroma čokolade. U specijaliziranim trgovinama zdrave hrane mogu se naći proizvodi od rogača.

Winter 2010/11

Prigotovljavanje

U pjenasto izmiješani maslac (0,12 kg) doda se rastopljena čokolada (0,14 kg) i šećer (0,08 kg). Miješajući dodaje se jedno po jedno žumance, dok se šećer ne rastopi. Tada se umiješa posebno tučeni čvrsti snijeg od bjelanca i slatka šećera. Ujednačeno se izmiješa i dodaju (očišćeni mljeveni) rogači, brašno od rogača, strugana korica i sok od naranče te rum. Rahlo izmiješana smjesa istrese se u namazani kalup za torte i peče na temperaturi 175° C oko 45 minuta. Pečena torta treba se odvajati od stijenke kalupa. Ohlađena torta izvadi se iz kalupa i po sredini vodoravno presiječe na pola. Donja polovina premaže se pekmezom od marelice. Preklopi se gornja polovina i poravna, a torta prelije ocaklinom od čokolade. Torta se ukrasi tučenim vrhnjem , komadićima rogača i arancinima.

Napomena

Ukoliko nemate svježih rogača za mljevenje, možete tortu pripremiti i bez njih uz povećanje brašna od rogača. Brašno rogača može se prije upotrebe malo popržiti na suhoj tavi. Okus je puniji i finiji. Welcome

Preparation:

Beat butter until foamy (0,12 kg) and add melted chocolate (0,14 kg) and sugar (0,08 kg). Mix adding yolks one by one until sugar melts. Separately beat egg-whites and sugar until stiff, and add into the mixture. Add (cleaned and ground) carob, carob flour, grated orange peel, orange zest and rum, and mix until well blended and crumbly. Put the mixture into a greased cake tin and bake for about 45 minutes at 175° C. When baked, the sponge should separate from the tin easily. Cool. Take the sponge out of the cake tin and cut in half horizontally. Coat the lower half with apricot jam, cover with the upper part, even, and cover with chocolate glazing. Decorate with whipped cream, carob pieces and arancini.

b o r a C t ea u Note:

If you do not have fresh carobs to ground, you can prepare the gateau without them increasing the quantity of carob flour. Carob flour will have a fuller and finer taste when roasted slightly on a dry pen before use.

Ga

T

he carob tree likes the warm Mediterranean climate, but doesn’t like large quantities of water. Wherever it grows it gives form to the landscape. Numerous attempts to cultivate the carob tree were not particularly successful. The natives of Dubrovnik know that the carob trees which are undisturbed while in the bud will grow the best… after that they can be grafted and „tamed“ in order to bear fruit two or three years later. Carob pods are excellent food. The fruit is sweet and fragrant. The dark brown pods are rich in sugar, proteins, vitamin A and vitamin B group, and many important minerals. They are also rich in pectin which facilitates digestion. They do not contain fat and their caloric value is 2/3 less than that of chocolate. Roasted and ground carob can be served as an alternative to coffee or cocoa. It is used for the preparation of various sweet delicacies and drinks. Carob is best consumed in the form of finely ground powder (similar to cocoa) and used for the preparation of delicious and healthy „chocolate“ beverages. It also gives a fine chocolate aroma to various puddings and cakes. Carob products are sold in the specialised healthy food shops.
