Concert in a Dubrovnik Renaissance Garden tonight

Written by  Jul 28, 2017

Dubrovnik will play host to a rather special concert tonight in the gardens of a summer residence. The Renaissance Garden program was premiered in August 2016 as part of the Garden of Music project and is realized in partnership with the Caboga Stiftung Foundation and the support of the City of Dubrovnik.

The aim of the project is to present cultural material and intangible heritage in an attractive way and innovative art practices aimed at bringing together rich cultural heritage and the history of culture in Dubrovnik summer villas. The music is inspired by the spirits of the past and the story is about the villas built by the rich Dubrovnik nobility on the territory of the former Republic of Dubrovnik.

Apart from serving as places for holidays, musical and literary academies were organized in the summer villas, and their gardens were visited by poets, philosophers and writers. At the source and the banks of the river Ombla, where sweet and salted water is combined, there are thirty summer historical villas. Some are renovated and some are still waiting for their renaissance. Entrance to the concert is free of charge and a special bus transfer leaves from the Pile Gate station to the Villa at 7:30 pm.
