EXHIBITION
NEW ACQUISITIONS OF THE CIVIC MUSEUM COLLECTION
organizers: Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka, Civic Museum Council
Exhibition will remain open until 20 February 2022

In the exhibition “New Acquisitions of the Civil Museum Collection,” the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka is publicly presenting exponents that citizens have suggested and chosen for the Civic Museum Collection following the second Public Call for the Proposal of Exponents for the Civic Museum Collection, under the slogan “How Do We Want to Be Remembered?”
The Public Call was posted by the Museum’s Civic Museum Council, and from 6 April through 30 September 2021 citizens sent proposals via the internet for exponents that will become part of the collection.
The Civic Museum Council (CMC) was established in January 2019, making the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka the first in Croatia to include the community in its work, implement the practice of participatory management in museums, initiate democratization, intensify its adaptation to the community’s needs and begin to approach its collection activities differently.
After establishing the Civic Museum Collection, which is co-created by members of the public, the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka began to gather exponents that will help future generations interpret and contextualize the times in which we live today.
For the Civic Museum Collection this year, citizens selected:
1) Awards to the volunteers for the European Capital of Culture 2020;
2) A feature report aired by Kanal Ri on the heroes of the COVID-19 pandemic;
3) An emergency services badge and photograph of a first aid kit from the 1950s
4) The online programme of the Croatian Culture Hall in Sušak;
5) An empty COVID-19 vaccine vial – Rijeka Clinical Hospital Centre

The exhibition also presents two proposals that did not become a part of the collection: “Zooming” and the video ‘Modra’ in which Ivan Banović’s footage shows Rijeka during the full lockdown in 2020.

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.

VALENTINE’S DAY
CONTEST
ANA & PETAR, TIMELESS LOVERS
To observe Valentine’s Day, the Day of Lovers, the On Frankopan Paths Culture and Tourism Route has organized a creative activity aimed at children aged 7 to 12, who are invited to participate in the contest called ‘Ana & Petar, Timeless Lovers’.

The competition is based on one of the most touching love stories in history, that of Ana Katarina Frankopan and Petar Zrinski. Among the many stories about the lives of these best known noble families, the Zrinskis and Frankopans, it has always been a source of inspiration, and the farewell letter from Peter Zrinski to his wife Ana Katarina, which he sent on the eve of his execution, is deemed the loveliest of all love letters ever written in the Croatian language.
And this is why the youngest friends of the Route are invited to take inspiration from this love story and write their own love letter to someone special – real or imagined.
The contest will be posted on the social media pages of the On Frankopan Paths Culture and Tourism Route on 1 February 2022, and the names of the two winners will be announced on 14 February 2022.
