Šibenski.hr reports, this time Radio Šibenik, with the support of the City of Šibenik and the Cultural Association Fotopoetika, is giving it away to all its fellow citizens and visitors to Krešimir’s city. 

“I’m lying in bed waiting for the rhythm, for the music to take me. As in a dream, I am rich in emerald bays, pines, capes, caves, stalagmites”, said the great Vesna Parun in an interview in 2014 (My World).

Šibenik County Radio is dedicating the open-air library, ‘Salto Mortale’ to Vesna Parun, for which the foundations were laid this Tuesday, April 27, in the afternoon. 

“As Šibenik is a city that is a friend of children, a city of young people, it is a city of culture from the city center to other parts of the city. This time we went to the Rasadnik, which until recently was a neglected park, and now is an example of successful cooperation of the city administration with the representatives of the neighborhood and we are turning it into an urban living room. And I hope that this is just one in a series of activities to spread culture”, said Deputy Mayor Rakić.

The ‘Salto Mortale’ library is the third of its kind in Šibenik, and this one has found its place under the canopy of tall pine trees in Rasadnik – a place rich in content for the quality pastime of fellow citizens of all ages, from the youngest to the oldest.

“With this project, as Salto Mortale is primarily a project that will last two months, and will bring a handful of beautiful things to the people of Šibenik in places they would never think of, we want to enrich our city with exactly the content that our fellow citizens love. The location was not chosen by chance either. Namely, Rasadnik is a gathering place for many people from Šibenik, small and large, and is located on the way to the future student center Palacin. We wanted to complete the story and add a cultural, literary note to the place”, said longtime editor Živana Podrug.

The name of Vesna Parun was not taken by chance either. The library is named after her collection of poems published in 1981 to mark the centenary of the great poet’s birth on April 10, 2022. Also, Radio Šibenik and partners with this project join the celebration of 2021 as the Year of Reading by the decision of the Ministry of Culture and Reading.
