During the 16th and 17th century, Venice, Serenissima, or the Queen of the Adriatic, reached its musical apogee: at that time, it was the center of new spiritual and cultural tendencies, a magnet for musicians from all sides of Europe, and most certainly a magnet for musicians from the oversea Croatian areas of Istria, Dalmatia and the Dubrovnik Republic. Among various other nations in multiethnic Venice, the Croatian community had its own church and brotherhood – today known as Scuola Dalmata. The majority of Croatian folk would gather at Riva dei Schiavoni (”The Croat Promenade“), one of the most beautiful Venetian ports stretching from St. Mark’s Square, over Ponte dei Sospiri (the Bridge of Sighs), and all the way to the Arsenale. At the promenade, Croatians had their traditional meeting points and places for trade and diplomacy. It’s where they danced (the dance Pavana sesta detta la Schiavonetta was published in 1569 in Giulio Cesare Barbetta’s lute collection and was the first known printed music for a Croatian dance), sang folk songs, and many different artists and bibliophiles would gather.
