Marin Držić Theatre and Monument (Dubrovnik)
The monument to the greatest playwright of Dubrovnik Marin Držić is located between the theatre named after him and the Rector’s Palace, under the authentic section of the City Hall in which his brilliant play entitled “Dundo Maroje” was performed in 1551. This monument, the work of the renowned Croatian sculptor Ivan Meštrović, was relocated to the Old City in 2008, on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Držić’s birth. The monuments relocation to the UNESCO world heritage site within the city walls stirred controversy because of the Dubrovnik Republic Statutory Decree according to which the erecting of monuments in public places was considered inappropriate.
