About the event:

Exhibition of the history of printing

The exhibition covers the period from 1859, when Antonio Coana from Venice moved to Rovinj and founded the printing company "Istriana", until 1974 when the Istratisak was founded in Pazin. It was the first printing house of modern type in Istria, which was granted approval for work after the official establishment of the Austrian authorities throughout Istria in 1814. The exhibition shows part of the print heritage of Rovinj and Istria - the prints of the everyday street life, offices and cafes, schools, workplaces, prayer times and the rare moments of fun and leisure.
