Šerbedžija: Dragonera and Porto Mariccio – great touristic and cultural project
...My dear friend Danko Končar is developing an exceptional project in the area of the Brijuni Riviera. It will be a complex tourism-related undertaking that will undoubtedly benefit not only Istria but the whole of Croatia as well. In the area of Barbariga and Dragonera, where Roman villas were located a long time ago, the remains of which can still be observed in all their luxury, a luxurious settlement with apartments and villas will be built that will incorporate architecturally this significant archaeological legacy.
The new tourist settlement will be built directly opposite the Brijuni Islands and, as a result, within reach of the summer stage of the Ulysses theater on the island of Mali Brijun in the old Austro-Hungarian fortress. We intend to cooperate, with great joy, on their major Dragonera and Barbariga project and we wish to be part of that great touristic, but also cultural, project with our performances.
Besides in Croatian, our performances will also be in English and Italian and our wish is to become an international theater over the next several years. Renowned artists from all over the world have already participated in the projects of our Ulysses theater: Vanessa Redgrave, Leen Redgrave, Amanda Plamer, Nigel Osborne... followed by young theatrical artists from America... Major film stars such as Angelina Jolie and Anette Bening had visited us as well... Renowned world producers and directors Peter Medak, Gregor Niccolas, Robert Lantos… We showed all of them the beautiful Brijuni Islands and Riviera from Pula to Rovinj, including Barbariga and Dragonera... They all have expressed the desire to return…
