Late Venetian fortification (Split, 4 Oct 19)

Split, Split City Museum, October 4, 2019

Until now, research on Venetian fortifications has given considerable more attention to Cinquecento works than to the achievements of the following centuries. This is why the aim of the conference is to focus on the later period. New material and insights are expected on the period starting with the War of Candia. Relevant topics include but are not limited to important fortification sites and projects (Morea, Corfu, Corinto, Dalmatia etc.), activities of military engineers, procedures and institutions involved in the construction of fortifications, Schulenburg's involvement in fortification construction.
Conference languages: English, Italian

Conference venue: Split City Museum, Papalićeva 1
