As our domain continues to expand and evolve, we are continuously seeking volunteers to join our all-volunteer work force to provide materials and/or create web pages on all aspects of Istrian heritage. We are non-commercial and unfunded, so would also your appreciate financial an/dor material contributions, regardless of size. If interested, please write to

We have a tribute to the tragedy of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center of New York City which includes photographs and other contributions by various Istrians and one Dalmatian. To view, click here.
