Pomorski i povijesni muzej Hrvatskog primorja Rijeka

The Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka made the Decision on Temporary Organization of Operations of the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka in compliance with the prevailing measures pursuant to the declaration of the COVID-19 epidemic.
The Museum has joined the campaign launched by the Ministry of Tourism and Sports and the Croatian Tourism Board, and obtained the “Safe Stay in Croatia” designation, which highlights it as a museum in which all health and safety protocols are enforced during the COVID-19 pandemic, making it a safe and desirable destination. The Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka and its remote locations, the Kastav Regional Museum Collection and the Lipa Remembers Memorial Centre, are thus safe places to visit.
The Museum is also a proud partner with the Central State Demography and Youth Office of the Republic of Croatia in the IT programme e-Dječja kartica (children’s e-card) and the mobile app Mudrica, which includes features for both parents and children when they visit the Museum. The app is free of charge, and it offers many benefits, such as free admission for children from a single family when the parents purchase tickets, a single admission pass for all three museum locations, free admission for parents whose children are participating in workshops and a 50% discount on children’s publications.

EXHIBITION
Borders – Between Order and Chaos
As something of a signpost for the online exhibition “Borders – Between Order and Chaos,” an info-point was installed in the atrium of the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka which presents the ten primary themes covered by the exhibition. The concept of “one theme – one exhibit” served as a framework to present a complex exhibition about borders created as a part of the European Capital of Culture “Age of Power” programme.

As part of the programme for Rijeka 2020 – European Capital of Culture, the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka presented an online exhibition: “Borders: Between Order and Chaos.” The exhibition deals with the problem of borders – real ones, the ones we impose upon ourselves or those imposed by our environment, way of life, traditions… Even though they still exist when we pay them no mind, we believe that the “new normal” caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has made many people aware of certain borders we had never thought about before.
The exhibition was funded by the City of Rijeka and Primorje-Gorski Kotar County.

The Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka will mark the 350th anniversary of the execution of Fran Krsto Frankopan with an exhibition of photographs and postcards from the Museum’s collection featuring scenes of the Frankopan castles in the territory of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County and publication of a guide to their estates in Croatia, with the aim of consolidating presentation of the Frankopan architectural heritage and fostering awareness of the importance of the Frankopans to Croatian history and culture.

EXHIBITION
THE FRANKOPAN TOWNS AND FORTIFICATIONS IN THE TERRITORY OF PRIMORJE-GORSKI KOTAR COUNTY ON HISTORICAL PHOTOGRAPHS AND POSTCARDS
organizer: Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka
exhibition concept: Margita Cvijetinović
exhibition conceived by: Margita Cvijetinović, Tamara Mataija, Tea Perinčić, Antonella Vlaše
The exhibition will remain open from April to June 2021

Using materials from the Museum’s inventory – maps, sketches, books, postcards, historical photographs – the exhibition will present the Frankopan towns and fortifications preserved in the territory of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County. Visual materials are a significant source for studying the remains of the immovable cultural heritage, so that they not only have cultural/historical and artistic value but also documentary importance. In the late 19th century, at a time of burgeoning national awareness and increasing resistance to centralist authority, the Frankopans acquired cult status in Croatian history, which was reflected in the popularity of numerous reproductions and postcards. The most numerous visual materials are postcards, which contributed to the creation of selective memory as they primarily represent motifs attractive to the wider public. Thus, the romantic motifs of medieval castles and crumbling fortifications, among which the most common contain scenes of Krk, Trsat, Kraljevica and Crikvenica, are present in many variants produced from the end of the 19th to the mid-20th century.
The exhibition is accessible to users in virtual format.

PRESENTATION OF A GUIDE
100 FRANKOPAN TOWNS AND FORTIFICATIONS IN CROATIA
publishers: Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka
written and edited by: Margita Cvijetinović
text supervision: Mihaela Matešić
design: Vesna Rožman
The guide emerged within the framework of the project “On Frankopan Paths Culture and Tourism Route” implemented by Primorje-Gorski Kotar County and co-financed by the EU’s European Regional Development Fund.

The Frankopans were a noble family who left an indelible mark on Croatian history from its emergence in 1118 until the execution of the last Frankopan, Fran Krsto, in 1671. The Frankopans originated on the island of Krk, whence they expanded their influence first to Modruš and Vinodol, and they had estates in almost all of Croatia and in numerous foreign countries (Italy, Austria, Bohemia, Poland, Sweden, Hungary, Slovenia, and Bosnia-Herzegovina). For a time they owned a third of today’s Croatia, with holdings from the island of Krk to the renowned Knin. They acquired their estates by purchase, in return for military service to Venetian, Hungarian, Habsburg and other rulers and through marriages that created familial bonds with the most important Croatian and European noble dynasties.
The guide contains a brief description of 100 sites in Croatia and notes 36 more outside of Croatia’s borders. The publication was conceived as a thematic tourist guide for lovers of history and the old Frankopan towns and fortifications. This is the first time all of the Frankopan estates in Croatia are being presented together, which opens up possibilities for collaboration between local and regional tourism boards and the joint presentation of a unified cultural product. Even though most of the sites are situated in urban areas and/or easily accessed, some of them are more difficult to approach and are meant for tourists with an adventurous spirit. Maps of the local areas and GPS coordinates are provided to help visitors get their bearings.

EXHIBITION
VIOLINS BEYOND BORDERS/STRADIVARI IN RIJEKA – KRESNIK AND CREMONA
organizer: Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka
co-organizers: Consulate General of the Republic of Italy in Croatia (Rijeka), Glazbeni Festival Kvarner d.o.o. (Opatija)
partner: Museo del Violino (Cremona, Italy)
exhibition conceived by: Tamara Mataija, Fausto Cacciatori, Tea Perinčić
the exhibition will remain open until 30 April 2021

The exhibition observes the 150th anniversary of the birth of Dr Franjo Kresnik (1869-1943), one of the greatest Cremonese lutherie experts of his time. Kresnik dedicated over 40 years to the study of bowed string instruments, particularly those made in the workshops of Antonio Stradivari and Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesù.
A film was shot to accompany the exhibition “Violins Beyond Borders/Stradivari in Rijeka – Kresnik and Cremona.” Antonio Stradivari, Guiseppe Guarneri del Gesù and Franjo Kresnik have left behind instruments which are admired to this day, while generations have enjoyed the music that they make. This is why we are calling on everyone to enjoy the music and this film that recalls our great fellow citizen.

EXHIBITION
D’ANNUNZIO’S MARTYR – L’OLOCAUSTA DI D’ANNUNZIO
organizer: Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka
exhibition conceived by: Tea Perinčić and Ana-Maria Milčić
exhibition designed by: Sanjin Kunić and Nikolina Radić Štivić
the exhibition will remain open until 30 April 2021

The exhibition opened on 12 September 2019 to mark the one-hundredth anniversary of D’Annunzio’s occupation of Rijeka. The exhibition was set up as part of the permanent display on the first floor of the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka. It portrays the sixteen months of the dictatorship established in Rijeka by Gabriele D’Annunzio, the Italian poet, soldier and nationalist, through the prism of women – in both the figurative and literal senses, through a cross-section of specific historical events and testimony and by presenting several works by Italian futurists which reflect the spirit of this era.
To accompany the exhibition in the Museum, we have also provided our visitors with the possibility of virtual guidance through it.
