Sažetak
Giancix was a Dalmatian (Croatian) officer and engineer in the Venetian service, whose name appears in archival documents in numerous versions. He spent his entire career in the Venetian army, advancing from the lowest to the highest rank. He gained extensive practical experience by participating in battles and was wounded several times. As commander of the defence of Modon (1715) he fell into Ottoman captivity, from which he was released after five years. He continued his career, eventually becoming the third person of the Venetian army in the rank of tenente generale. Croatian literature does not provide much information on Giancix. More can be found in foreign professional literature, where he has been termed ingenious. Such a rating is primarily associated with his main work, the fortress of Palamida in Greece. It was the only fortress that he built from the foundation, while in many other cases he was responsible for modernisation interventions. His activity was particularly intense shortly before the second Morean War (1714-1718), when he was visiting and designing improvements for the most critical strongholds threatened by the Ottoman forces (Knin, Corfu, Castel di Morea, Nauplia, Modon).
