Abstract

The session is focused on the transfer of different (social, religious, and urban planning) practices between Venice and Dubrovnik. The papers aim at a comparison of political, social, and economic circumstances that provoked and enabled these transfers. The new landscapes, achieved and shaped through the erection of new buildings and the reprogramming and remodelling of the old ones, will be analyzed. The urban phenomena, such as the municipal houses project, the civic patron’s new church, the Observant reform of the religious houses, and establishment of the Ghetto, will be scrutinized as outcomes of parallel historical processes which will be identified and discussed in the proposed papers.
