Toponyms[edit]

I believe that we were on a good path toward a solution, but then the discussion went downhill. I've just attempted a discussion reset, hopefully that will help. The issue is actually a complex one, so I've tried to simplify it by extracting major points and taking it from there. So, let's see how it works out.

Thanks for dropping a note... GregorB (talk) 19:22, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Re:Hvar Rebellion[edit]

Those names may be incorrect for all I know, I was just reverting the banned User:PIO/Luigi 28. I revert him regardless of right or wrong, as should be done with community banned users. When I wrote the article, I basically used the stuff from the Croatian Wiki. The names were copy-pasted from there. I personally am no expert on Venetian nobility, but I must say I doubt somebody just "invented" them to tease the irredentists... I'm going on a wikibreak in about 10 mins :), so I won't be able to get into this as much as I should. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 16:39, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Re:Parenzana[edit]

Hmm, you have a point. "Porečanka" may not bee the right solution to the issue. If I may suggest a middle ground: how about using the railroad's real name: "Parenzaner Bahn" or "Parenzaner Railroad". The redirect is always there and we'd be using a completely indisputable, NPOV name? :) (P.S. Can I have some of your cookies?) --DIREKTOR (TALK) 10:11, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Ok, I agree. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 14:42, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
Also, the Hvar Rebellion thing. If you're convinced the names are wrong, I wouldn't object to their correction. However, I would like to know why croWiki used them... strange --DIREKTOR (TALK) 15:02, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Re:Marta Verginella[edit]

Salve! Infatti hai ragione, sulla pagina di Pahor la discussione non c'è. Ho cercato di trovarla altrove, ma non riesco a ricordare in ché occasione abbiamo discusso sulla questione. Non fa niente. Possiamo cominciare una nuova discussione sulla pagina di Marta Verginella (in inglese, è chiaro). Propongo che cominci tu; io probabilmente risponderò con un po' di ritardo (in questi giorni non ho molto tempo a disposizione). Ciao, Viator slovenicus (talk) 14:31, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Istria[edit]

I am outraged at the wholesale disregard for WP:NCGN and the Consensus we've achieved on the naming of Istrian settlements. I was forced to go through all Istrian settlement articles (again) just to remove the blatant POv and nationalist renaming of a town into the "Italian-Croatian" format, notice: not even "Croatian-Italian". In some cases the Croatian name was completely wiped, for a settlement in Croatia. There is also a double standard for the Grožnjan article, which barely used the name "Grožnjan" at all. The worse part is - you noticed it and only partially reverted the socks and IPs. I don't want to make this "personal", but I did expect the support of you guys in keeping the vandals and sockpuppeteers out. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 13:11, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

There are only two options:
  • #1 semi-protection for all obscure Istrian articles (which would also keep the tourism adds out)
  • #2 range block the suckers!
I personally prefer the second possibility, but its impractical. It would probably be best to semi-protect all the Istrian settlements except Pula, Rovinj, and Pazin (if not those as well). Those three we can keep an eye on and easily revert if necessary. Its simply too much work to go through ALL of them just because those socks have a whole lot of time to push their POV. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 13:56, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Ha convinto in meno di 20 minuti un amministratore che mi ha bloccato per un mese. Ora, io non so perchè tu sei stato bloccato infinito.. secondo me una tua ingenuità sul rilascio delle immagini, non entro nel merito.. ma almeno non sei stato vittima di un'imboscata!

La Città Ideale, Laurana e Alberti[edit]

Vedi questo articolo, apparso sull'ADN-Kronos sei anni fa (http://www.adnkronos.com/Archivio/AdnAgenzia/2006/02/23/Cultura/Arte/ARTE-CLAMOROSA-SCOPERTA-DISEGNO-SEGRETO-SVELA-MISTERO-DELLA-CITTA-IDEALEADNKRONOS_095428.php), che mi sembra convincente (non si menzionano scritture glagolitiche, ma si capisce dove sono le tre tavole):

ARTE: CLAMOROSA SCOPERTA, DISEGNO SEGRETO SVELA MISTERO DELLA CITTA' IDEALE/ADNKRONOS

DIETRO QUADRO ATTRIBUITO A PIERO DELLA FRANCESCA RITROVATO GRAZIE A RAGGI X SCHIZZO LEON BATTISTA ALBERTI

Firenze, 23 feb. - (Adnkronos) - C’è probabilmente la mano di Leon Battista Alberti (1404-1472), l’autore del trattato ‘’De Re Aedificatoria’’, dietro ‘’La Città Ideale’’, il misterioso dipinto quattrocentesco attribuito alla scuola di Piero della Francesca e custodito alla Galleria nazionale di Urbino, simbolo universalmente noto del classicismo e della perfezione formale raggiunta dall’architettura e dall’urbanistica rinascimentale.

Sembra provarlo un inedito e altrettanto misterioso disegno destinato a diventare una delle attrazioni della grande mostra che Firenze, grazie all’iniziativa dell’Ente Cassa di Risparmio, si prepara a dedicare al geniale concittadino a 600 anni dalla nascita: ’’L’uomo del Rinascimento. Leon Battista Alberti e le Arti a Firenze tra Ragione e Bellezza’’, che si terra’ a Palazzo Strozzi dall’11 marzo al 23 luglio.

Individuato grazie ai più moderni strumenti diagnostici (tra cui radiografia e riflettografia), il disegno si trova nascosto sotto la superficie pittorica e in occasione della mostra l’immagine sarà esposta per la prima volta, per di più a fianco del dipinto originale. La qualità è stupefacente e secondo gli esperti che lo hanno esaminato, il disegno è estremamente rivelatore data la sua assoluta particolarità: è infatti identico al dipinto in tutti i dettagli. (segue) ARTE: CLAMOROSA SCOPERTA, DISEGNO SEGRETO SVELA MISTERO DELLA CITTA' IDEALE/ADNKRONOS (2)

L'ESPERTO, UN RARISSIMO CASO DI FOTOCOPIA MONOCROMA

(Adnkronos) - Un rarissimo caso di fotocopia monocroma, lo definisce l’esperto internazionale di diagnostica che ha condotto la ricerca, Maurizio Seracini, cacciatore, tra l’altro, dei perduti affreschi di Michelangelo e Leonardo in Palazzo Vecchio a Firenze. “Anche maestri della prospettiva come Piero della Francesca - aggiunge Seracini - non ricorrevano a simili artifici, bensì preparavano tavole e tele limitandosi a poche linee guida, ad accenni di costruzione geometrica. Il resto era affidato all’abilità del pennello”.

Il professor Gabriele Morolli, docente di storia dell’architettura all’Università di Firenze, tra i massimi conoscitori di Alberti e curatore con Cristina Acidini (soprintendente dell’Opificio delle Pietre Dure) della mostra a Palazzo Strozzi, sostiene con decisione la tesi che a realizzare il disegno sia stato Alberti in persona.

“Le sue teorie - spiega Morolli - hanno influenzato molti dei massimi artisti dell’epoca, tra cui Piero della Francesca, al quale La Città Ideale è di solito attribuita. Ma in questo caso si va ben oltre la paternità mentale. Il disegno prefigura alla perfezione forme, volumi e prospettiva dell’intera rappresentazione rivelando l’opera non di un pittore, ma di un architetto come Alberti, che secondo Vasari era bravissimo a disegnare prospettive di città ‘senza le figure’”. (segue)

ARTE: CLAMOROSA SCOPERTA, DISEGNO SEGRETO SVELA MISTERO DELLA CITTA' IDEALE/ADNKRONOS (3)

PROF. MOROLLI, TRA I TANTI INDIZI EDIFICI RAPPRESENTATI CHE CITANO NOTE OPERE ALBERTI

(Adnkronos) - Ma c’è di più: “Gli edifici rappresentati - ricorda Morolli - non solo sono fedeli trascrizioni di architettura descritte nel trattato albertiano ‘De Re Aedificatoria’, ma citano anche note opere di Alberti, in particolare Palazzo Rucellai e la facciata di Santa Maria Novella a Firenze, il tempio Malatestiano a Rimini. Niente ci proibisce dunque di pensare che Alberti abbia realizzato il disegno da par suo e che, poi, altri lo abbiano colorato”.

Ma gli indizi non finiscono qui. Come noto, esistono altre due ‘’Città ideali’’ raffiguranti analoghe scene urbane realizzate in apparenza secondo una stessa concezione e forse da una stessa mano. La tavola in questione è custodita a Urbino nel Museo Nazionale delle Marche, le altre nei musei di Berlino e Baltimora. Per Morolli il palinsesto grafico alla base del dipinto di Urbino risalirebbe alla meta del Quattrocento e potrebbe essere stato concepito nell’ambito dei grandi progetti di papa Niccolò V (di cui Alberti fu consigliere e al quale donò la prima copia del De Re Aedificatoria) per rinnovare Roma e restaurare le antichità in vista del Giubileo del 1450.

E’ un’ipotesi che trova conforto nei soggetti delle altre due ‘’Città ideali’’. Quella di Baltimora raffigurerebbe dunque non un generico foro, bensì proprio il Foro Romano con tanto di Colosseo e Arco di Costantino accanto a edifici moderni: il grande tempio ottagonale fasciato di marmi bianchi e verdi come la facciata di Santa Maria Novella, i tanti palazzi all’antica che sembrano copie o sviluppi di Palazzo Rucellai. (segue)

ARTE: CLAMOROSA SCOPERTA, DISEGNO SEGRETO SVELA MISTERO DELLA CITTA' IDEALE/ADNKRONOS (4)

SERACINI VORREBBE ORA ANALIZZARE ANCHE LE ALTRE DUE CITTA' IDEALI


(Adnkronos) - Quella di Berlino raffigurerebbe invece la grande strada urbana che doveva mettere in comunicazione il Vaticano con l’approdo sul Tevere presso Castel Sant’Angelo (come l’attuale Via della Conciliazione) per favorire l’afflusso dei pellegrini. Quella di Urbino, infine, sarebbe l’immagine della piazza vaticana circondata da modernissimi palazzi cardinalizi e con al centro il tempio rotondo del nuovo San Pietro.

Maurizio Seracini vorrebbe ora analizzare con i suoi strumenti anche le altre due Città ideali nella convinzione che nascondano anch’esse un disegno. Se progetti giubilari erano, aggiunge Morolli, rimasero senza esito, furono accantonati e infine donati probabilmente dallo stesso Alberti al suo grande protettore Federico da Montefeltro, di cui fu più volte ospite a Urbino. I disegni furono poi portati a compimento, magari anche sotto il controllo dell’autore, da uno dei molti pittori fiorentini o urbinati alla corte del grande Montefeltro.

RSI flag[edit]

Hi Grifter. I hope you're fine. Take a look to this talk and to these decrees: they can clarify that RSI national flag was simply the italian tricolore. The flag with the eagle was the war flag, and should be used only for commanders, soldiers etc. (Same thing for The Kingdom of Italy: State flag was a tricolore with Savoia coat of arms, while war flag has coat of arm crowned). The ip was me, not logged in, by a public access point.

Gondola vs Gundulic[edit]

I do not want to look like canvassing but I start to be very confused and need some help. I really do not undestand how can Direktor claim that he finds so many references for Gundulic in English. I have been trough his search and when I put the English filter on I cannot reproduce his results. Indeed when I go trough his research I find plently of sources in Croatian but he claims that this is marginal.

I have searched in Google books with "Gundulic Ragusa Dubrovnik - Wikipedia -LCC" and the filter on English on and found 1810 references [1]. With the same filter I have researched "Gondola Ragusa Dubrovnik - Wikipedia -LCC" and found 1100 references [2]. The ratio is 1.6, not impressive in favour of "Gundulic". Am I doing something wrong? I really do not understand what to do. Perhaps in my Google research there is something wrong. Can you help?--Silvio1973 (talk) 20:17, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

Here you can see Ivo Perić (Jugoslavenska akademija znanosti i umjetnosti), in his books, used the original name. I don't want to enter in this discussion. It is a waste of time. You have to wait for a competent third part. I'm still with what I wrote in "de bona" discussion page: family names should be written in their romance form, while people should be analyzed. Ivan Gundulić is Ivan Gundulić and not "Gianfrancesco Gondola".

--Grifter72 (talk) 21:25, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

The fact is that all sources or arguments I have brought to the discussion have been completely ignored. I honestly do not understand why. Perhaps there is a will to reduce as much as possible any non-Slavic evidence from the past of Croatia. This really surprises me because the history of a country is something of composite and I do not realise in what is detrimental to admit that some of the people contributing to the history of this country were not ethnically Slavic.
However, the only thing to do is to wait for a competent third party. All other discussion are a waste of time. --Silvio1973 (talk) 20:01, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
