EXHIBITION
CRAFTS. A LOOK AT SOME TRADITIONAL CRAFTS IN KOČEVJE, KOSTEL, OSILNICA, LOŠKI POTOK AND THE RIBNICA VALLEY
conceived by: Živa Ogorelec
organizers: Kočevje Regional Museum, Ribnica Museum, Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka
opening: 18 March 2022 at 12 p.m.
Exhibition will remain open until 5 May 2022

The regions of Kočevje, Kostel, Loški Potok and the Ribnica Valley lie in south-eastern Slovenia along the border with Croatia. A karst and wooded landscape, its infertile soil and severe climate have influenced the creation of today virtually extinct traditional crafts. The residents of these regions, like those on the Croatian side of the Kupa River, generally eked out a living by selling home-made products, often from household to household. They sold so-called “dry goods” such as small woodwork articles, linen, broadcloth, pottery, various sundries, gaming pieces and even certain prohibited raw materials. The port in Bakar, and later in Rijeka as well, played a vital role here, as their proximity considerably influenced the economy of these regions.
Peddlers (known locally as pokućarci), particularly those from the Kočevje area, sold their wares in these ports and, from the 18th century onward, also bought various fruits from southern climes and other materials and then re-sold them in the interior.
Besides “dry goods,” the exhibition will also feature 11 almost entirely non-existent crafts from these Slovenian regions: production of quicklime, shoes, and headwear from dormouse hides, milling, cartage, brick-making, broadcloth and shingle manufacturing, barrel-making, weaving and the work of craftsmen who maintained saws and who, in Croatia and Slovenia, were called žagmojstri.
The organization of this exhibition marks the continuation of successful collaboration between the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka with the Kočevje Regional Museum, which began with the guest appearance of the exhibition “Moj uoča je šiu za vurame: putovima vurmohara gornjega toka rijeke Kupe (On the Paths of Watch Peddlers Along the Kupa’s Upper Course)” in Rijeka in 2017.

EXHIBITION
GET TO KNOW THE FRANKOPANS
organizers: On Frankopan Paths Culture and Tourism Route, Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka
Exhibition will remain open until 20 March 2022

From Dujam to Fran Krsto, from Krk to Wiener Neustadt, from 1118 to 1671… Over five and half centuries of Croatia history are inconceivable without the Frankopans. There were no major social and political functions that they did not perform; they were counts, royal governors, viceroys and warriors, patrons of the arts, poets, and finally political revolutionaries seeking a better world. Law codes, charters and other major cultural documents recorded in the Croatian language in Glagolitic script remain in their wake. A series of 114 Frankopans in 17 generations have been recorded in their genealogy.
The exhibition shows only a miniscule part of their story; one must go ‘On Frankopan Paths’ to see the rest.
