SCHITTAR MARIO (1862-1890)

Mario Schittar was the first poet to create in the Fiuman dialect under the pseudonym Zuane de la Maesecia.

From 1880 to 1884 he studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice. After returning to his hometown, he lived as a professional painter and writer.

His main works are the comedy “The Triumph of St. Michael” (1888) and a four-act historical drama “Il Bastardi di Huhyad ovvero La Vergine Liburna” (1889). His book of selected poems “Odušci srca” was published after his death (1913).

He wrote different literary genres (drama, novel, poetry), expressing himself in Italian as well as in the local dialect.
