Merlin Association has launched the design of souvenirs - the memories inspired by the sources from the autochthon past of Pula, based on the ancient Roman theater and Roman history. We are making the original souvenirs, inspired by the stone masks from the Small Roman Theater in the Archaeological Museum of Istria, from natural materials (clay and plaster casts), painted and covered with the patina of red and gray soil, as if they have been only recently unearthed from some location in Istria or Pula.
Weaving and embroidery workshops are developing the idea of the revival of decorative objects and parts of the traditional Istrian costumes as the original and specific textile souvenir.
