Ivan Vitić and the Historical Centre of Zadar: On the 100th Anniversary of His Birth

Abstract

Rad se bavi djelovanjem Ivana Vitića u obnovi i izgradnji povijesne jezgre Zadra nakon razaranja u Drugom svjetskom ratu. Njegova uloga u Zadru je do sada ostala u literaturi tek fragmentarno naznačena. Ovaj rad kroz provedeno arhivsko istraživanje pojašnjava njegovo sudjelovanje na natječaju 1953. godine, angažiranje od strane gradski vlasti na izradi regulacije vrlo važnog bloka u samom središtu povijesne jezgre Zadra 1955. godine te analizu izvedenih projekata, autorstvo nad pojedinačnim projektima i veliku arhitektonsku važnost koji ima danas devastirana i zapuštena zgrada ZB III u povijesnoj jezgri Zadra.This paper focuses on the role of architect Ivan Vitić in the rebuilding and modernization of Zadar’s historical centre after its devastation in World War II. His role in Zadar has hitherto been only fragmentarily researched. Based on archival research, the author offers new insights on the architect’s participation in the competition of 1953 and his role in developing a master plan, commissioned in 1955 by the municipal authorities, for a very important block of houses in the very heart of Zadar’s historical centre. The article continues with an analysis of Vitić’s executed projects and his authorship of various individual projects, showing the great architectural importance of the presently devastated and neglected building ZB III in the historical centre of Zadar
