From Traditional Heritage of Mid-Istria
; Department of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Zagreb, Croatia
Due to its traffic isolation, Central Istria has preserved its environmental features, as well as the traditional culture and way of life until today. Some cultural traits are likely to disappear under the influence of the inevitable development of communications and traffic roads. It is therefore necessary to establish models of protection of environmental and cultural features in the context of contemporary society and ever developing tourist industry. The true natural and cultural values still existing in Istria should be preserved by referring to both positive and negative examples of other European regions. During the past ten years, the author has been concentrating on research into the following places of Central Istria: Draguc, Račice, Sovinjak, Sovinjska brda, Sv. Donat, Vrh, Šćulci, Motovun, Drobezija, Baletićev brijeg and Sirotići.
In the course of the research, a special attention has indeed been paid to economic, and following those, further to the environmental, social and political
context of creation and development of the architecture. All environmental changes that occur in the process of managing the nature, change the way of life of a community, and parallel with these changes have further effect on the way of habitation, which often demands a visible material transformation as well. Each of these villages and towns has its guards of the past times, observable in the way of constructing of sacral monuments, houses and agricultural buildings.
