September Double Issue of Matica Magazine Available

3 Min Read

The September double issue of Matica magazine is available. The issue features a twenty-page spread on the island of Hvar, which holds six UNESCO-inscribed examples of humanity’s intangible cultural heritage.

A cornucopia of topics is covered in this issue on the homeland and diaspora community fronts, the CHF’s traditional line-up of summer programmes, and the work of our branch offices. Obituaries offer final farewells to prominent figures Jakša Kušan and Radoslav Katičić. Also in this issue we look at anniversaries celebrated by leading society figures, heritage groups and institutions.
