The project team proudly announces the upcoming publication of our book ‘Robert Adam and Diocletian’s Palace in Split’.
When, in November 2014, an international conference was held in the city of Split to mark the 250th anniversary of the publication of the famous book about Diocletian’s Palace written by Scottish neoclassical architect Robert Adam, it was immediately clear that the wealth of materials and ideas presented deserved to be transformed into a publication that is destined to be so much more than an ordinary collection of papers.
On Friday, April 7, at 5 pm the Institute of Art History in Zagreb will host a panel on the Chronogeographical Database of Grand Tourism in Dalmatia in the 18th and the 19th Century, with a introductionary lecture about the Grand Tour Dalmatia research project progress, focused on the presentation given by a team members at the conference Slavic Tower of Babel in Poznan.
