Festival "Curicum Vitae" is all about promotion of cultural heritage of city and island of Krk, an island in Croatia very rich in history and archaelogy with very little focus given to. Main idea is promoting these things through game, workshops, dance shows, plays, exhibitions and similiar things in the center of a very beautiful town of Krk on the island of Krk in the Kvarner gulf, Croatia. This project was started by croatian NGO, ZipArh with collaboration with KreativniKrk and Vilino polje and the goal is to promote the importance of archaeology and cultural heritage, aswell as the island living in Croatia to local residents and to many tourists visiting this town and this island.
Krk is a town with rich history from the prehistoric times and the rule of "Liburnians" during the bronze and iron age, through the rule of the Roman empire when the town was called "Curicum" to the rich medieval period. Medieval period was marked by rule of noble family Frankopans in whose castle will be majority of events, center of Catholic Church Diocese which still is today, glagolitic script and so on.
