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.

Cvijeta Pavlović and Ana Šverko participated in the international conference entitled Rewriting, diversity and cultural interference – the Slavic Tower of Babel. Translations, interactions and mutual influences. The conference was held in Poznań, Poland, from October 26 to 28 as part of the Slavic Tower of Babel festival. The paper they gave, entitled Mediating Croatian antiquity: from global to local and back, focused on travelogues about Dalmatia. The authors proposed that travel writers’ texts, just like drawings, convey much more than their ostensible subjects. A search for accidental transmitters of knowledge present in these works can enable us to study the spirit of place of the cities and towns that were recorded.

The workshop seeks to investigate Diocletian’s Palace as a living monument.
By researching the urban attributes of the Palace as systems of mat-organization, the workshop will identify and experience the Palace as highly complex spatial conglomeration.
