The White Road: In Expectation of Rain

An untended rural manor in Dobrova near Labin, the property of Labin’s noble Frankovich family, was transformed into a sculpture park in 1969, on the initiative of sculptor Professor Josip Diminić and academic Branko Fučić. This unique exhibition of sculptural works in a picturesque Istrian landscape was supplemented with ‘The White Road’ project. The project itself (the creator of the idea was also Professor Diminić) was conceived as a series of artistic interventions on the existing route of the white road which used to be the access road to the manor. From that time until today, 325 metres of the road have been realized and thirteen artists have participated in its re-formation.
