Vinkovci wants to preserve its monumental heritage with the help of a 3D scanner

first_imgLast year in January, a bronze memorial bust of Josip Runjanin from Vinkovci, the composer of the Croatian national anthem Lijepa naša, was stolen in Vinkovci, and despite a public invitation and an announced award, it has unfortunately not been found to this day. Due to the mentioned incident, the city authorities started thinking about how to protect the monumental heritage, and decided to scan the entire monumental heritage with the help of a 3D scanner so that replicas of the scanned monuments could be made in the future.”Despite the public invitation and the announced prize of 5.000 kuna, we did not find a memorial bust and we decided to make a new one. Unfortunately, due to advanced years, Antun Babić was not able to make a new memorial bust, so we offered this job to the academic sculptor Dejan Duraković.”, Said Vinkovci Mayor Mladen Karlić, adding that in considering how to protect monuments in public space from future possible alienation, there was a realization of the existence of 3D scanners in Vinkovci Association of Persons with Disabilities “Bubamara” Vinkovci.”We have a 3D scanner and part of the necessary equipment and it will be our pleasure to use it to preserve the monumental heritage in the City of Vinkovci”, Said the president of” Bubamara “Tomislav Velić.According to the head of culture and tourism of the City of Vinkovci, Mario Banožić, there are about 180 specimens of monumental heritage in the area of ​​the city of Vinkovci. “We estimated that the one who stole the bronze memorial bust of Josip Runjanin, which was placed on the square of the same name in 1971, could earn a maximum of 500 kuna by selling it in secondary raw materials, and making a new bust will cost us 50.000 kuna. Not to mention the huge cultural damage”, Said Banožić.A new memorial bust of Josip Runjanin was presented, which will be placed in place of the stolen one for the Day of the City of Vinkovci, July 20. When we talk about cultural tourism, it is certain that 3D scanner technology enables the preservation of monumental heritage for future generations that has been devastated or destroyed, either due to the theft or deterioration of cultural treasures. The original always has and will always have a much higher value than a replica, but if we already have to bit between a replica or nothing, then a replica is a much better option.Josip Runjanin (Vinkovci, 1821 – Novi Sad, 1878) was a Croatian composer and officer in the Austro-Hungarian army. He set Antun Mihanović’s song “Croatian Homeland” to music, which was proclaimed the Croatian anthem called “Our Beautiful Homeland”.Source: www.bubamara.hrlast_img read more

Amused Kevin Lerena has never been called this…

first_img13 years is a big difference in age, at least according to Sefer Seferi’s management.The 40-year-old Albanian veteran will on Saturday attempt to poach 27-year-old Kevin Lerena’s IBO cruiserweight belt at the Fists of Steel event at Emperor’s Palace, clearly banking on his South African opponent being “too young”.“Kevin is, of course, a very good fighter, but he’s still very young,” one of Seferi’s entourage said at the pre-fight conference on Tuesday.“Sefer is a professional, hard boxer. His preparation has been very good and his skill is also very good. We have a very good chance to win this fight. That’s what we came for.”Seferi was flanked by his older brother, Nuri, who is also a professional exponent.Sefer Seferi talks to his team after losing to Tyson Fury after there heavyweight contest at Manchester Arena on June 9, 2018 in Manchester, England. (Photo by Nathan Stirk/Getty Images)A few seats to the left, Lerena sat, amused yet hardly offended.“I’ve never been called young before‚” he said with a chuckle.Nonetheless, Lerena is acutely aware that he can’t underestimate his opponent, who boasts a fine record of 23-2-1 and has only been stopped in his tracks during last year’s showdown with Tyson Fury.“No fight is an easy fight at the top‚” said Lerena, who himself boasts a record of 23 wins and just one blemish.“It gets harder every fight because the expectation gets more. And that’s where Kevin Lerena rises to the occasion.“We’re two men with the same build but different attributes. It’s going to be a very tough fight. This has been my best camp yet. I’ve got a plan and he’s got a plan. It will take a few moments for me to suss him out.”For more sport your way, download The Citizen’s app for iOS and Android.last_img read more

REVIEW: ‘Dirty Dancing’ speedily delivers 80s-era nostalgia

first_imgIf you’re looking for just the hits, the Denver Center’s whirlwind production of “Dirty Dancing” delivers on all of the best scenes from the cult 80s coming-of-age movie starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey.There’s, of course, the watermelon scene where Frances “Baby” Houseman first stumbles into the working-class world of dancers and staff who mostly serve as playthings for well-to-do families vacationing at Kellerman’s, a Jewish resort in the Catskills in the 1960s. There’s the scene in the middle of the woods where the dreamy, other-side-of-the-tracks dance instructor  Johnny Castle helps Baby practice her routine via balancing on a log, and the one where they practice lifts in the water and things get a lot more fun than your typical dance lesson.But the show, especially the first half, speeds through the plot, and sometimes it feels more like watching a montage from the original movie rather than a tale of well-choreographed love between people from two completely different worlds. Baby is a high school graduate who is planning to join the Peace Corps, and Johnny is a poor dance instructor whose talent and passion mostly gets wasted on bored, wealthy women who want to ogle him and stuff diamonds in his pockets while he survives on jujubes.Jerome Harmann-Hardeman, who plays the resort’s band leader Tito Suarez,  saves much of the show’s stilted pacing with his energetic renditions of songs such as “Love Man.”Gillian Abbot is a convincing and endearing Baby and nails the aesthetic in her high-waisted jorts and her frizzy, curly hair, emblematic of the 17-year-old Jewish New Yorker played in the 1987 film by the pre-plastic surgery Grey.Christopher Tierney, who plays dreamy Johnny Castle, definitely manages to craft a swoon-worthy presence and goes as far as to nail the Swayze accent from the original film.“Dirty Dancing” is, in many ways, a film about Jewish culture: Baby’s dad as a doctor, the inevitable hooking up that happens at all Jewish summer camps, the parents’ disapproval for lusting after the Goy rebel when all your parents want you to do is date that nice Jewish boy from Yale who is majoring in hotel management.Baby’s parents, played by Mark Elliot Wilson and Alex Scolari come off — by no fault of their own, really — as kind of wishy washy and WASP-y. But what the show lacks in pace and overdoes in Goy, it makes up for in the most important part: Dancing.It’s hard not to smile when Johnny tells Baby to watch her “spaghetti arms” and to hold her “dance space.” And it’s equally endearing when the two leads finally nail the dance lift at the end of the show and we get to hear our favorite phrase of all time for all women, everywhere: “Nobody puts Baby in the corner.”“Dirty Dancing” runs through Jan. 31 at the Buell Theatre at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. For tickets,  go to denvercenter.org. Tickets start at $30.Writer’s note: Rachel Sapin grew up as one of the few Jews in a primarily Goy (at the time) Arvada suburb. She has experience with the subject of Jews at summer camp through her many summers spent falling in and out of love at Denver’s beloved Maurice B. Shwayder Camp of Temple Emanuel as a youth.last_img read more
