In 1918 a multinational state composed of nations that had never lived together was founded under the name of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (Kingdom of Yugoslavia from 1929). But, the new state lack full legitimacy. To ensure it authorities tried to form a unified common identity, supporting the idea of unity of three nations, which were according to them, three tribes of unique Yugoslav nation. Important role in the implementation of this plan had monuments and architectural works, which were carriers of suitable symbolism and expressions of the official discourse in public space. Therefore, initiatives for their erection were constant during the whole interwar period. However, only a relatively small number of those initiatives was succesfull due to bad economic situation, constant state of political crisis and different interests of various actors (state, local elite, non-governmental organisations etc.) included in their realization. The aim of this presentation is to study the process of ideologization of public space in the interwar provincial city of Split. Considering that immediately after the end of World War I Italians took control over Zadar, capital of Dalmatia up to 1918, the city of Split became the center of political, economic and social life in the region. Thus, during the interwar period it developed rapidly, which provided a lot of opportunities for implementation of national symbols in its public space. The focus of the presentation will be on the way in which monuments and representative buildings were conceived as personifications of the national idea, as well as on different actors included in their erection and the public perception of these projects.
