first_imgMotor boat Galeb, today a cultural asset, was built and launched in 1938 at the Ansaldo shipyard in Genoa. Its original purpose changed significantly over time, so it went from a transport ship to a military one, first as an accompanying cruiser, then as a minesweeper, and finally as a school ship, occasionally as a presidential yacht. Historically, the ship had a turbulent fate, from the complete destruction of the bow and its reconstruction in 1941-1943, to severe damage in the bombing and sinking in the port of Rijeka in 1944, after which it lay submerged until 1947. The seagull is known as a ship that was often and gladly used by Josip Broz Tito for his voyages and eventually became a symbol of a period of Croatian and even world history.Stalni izložbeni postav odnosi se na sam brod Galeb i ono što je ostalo sačuvano od njegove izvornosti. Riječ je o spavaonici Josipa Broza Tita i njegove supruge Jovanke, sobama časnika, kupaonicama, glavnom salonu, salonu za časnike na višim etažama i drugim prostorijama koje će se  u potpunosti restaurirati  i potom konzervirati. U ovu kategoriju spadaju i prostorije u trupu broda: zajedničke kabine za posadu, mornarski sanitarni čvorovi i društvene prostorije. Na isti način sačuvat će se i prezentirati pogonski sustav, zajedno s pomoćnim motorima.Interventions in these premises will be minimal and reduced to the conservation and restoration of the existing condition with the aim of presenting all visible historical layers and changes on board.Od Ramba III do Seagull the ship underwent a number of modifications, which is recognizable in its construction, and the existing furniture and decoration of the ship can be classified exclusively in the post-war and stylistically most recognizable phase of the 50s, 60s and 70s of the 20th century.Additional themes of the permanent exhibition: History of the ship Seagull – chronology, On the construction of four Ramba, Life on a Warship, Role Seagull in the Non-Aligned Movement and Rijeka after World War II.The project envisages that the ship will remain moored in the port of Rijeka and that its rich contents will fit into the cultural and artistic trends in the city of Rijeka.The program of the museum will coincide with the program line Rijeka European Capital of Culture 2020 “Age of Power”, which deals with a critical re-examination of all totalitarianisms that have touched Rijeka.The ship Galeb was bought by the City of Rijeka at a public auction due to the fact that it is a protected cultural asset of the Republic of Croatia, but also a ship with an interesting and turbulent history that is related to Rijeka. Namely, the ship Galeb was declared a cultural property on October 10, 2006, based on the decision of the Directorate for the Protection of Cultural Heritage of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia.The concept of a permanent and occasional museum exhibition at Galeb was composed with the intention of making the museum exhibition attractive to the widest circle of visitors and all age groups, which will also revive this ship. The permanent exhibition refers to the ship Galeb itself and what has been preserved from its originality.In addition to the ship’s infrastructure, the permanent exhibition will enrich the exhibitions aimed at showing the dynamic history of the ship Galeb and the city of Rijeka. A number of events are planned on board, which will unite various cultural activities in the city, such as theater performances, tribunes, performances, educational workshops, video projections and other contents that will be conducted by Rijeka’s cultural institutions. With the implementation of the project, the ship will become a significant tourist attraction of cultural significance, which will enrich the offer of the city of Rijeka in the form of cultural tourism. The opening of the ship as a new cultural and tourist content will enrich the local economic sector and thus encourage the creation of new jobs in the cultural sector.So the Seagull will transform the ship into a museum which will offer visitors a story about the regime and time that it symbolizes today, not only in the context of the former Yugoslavia but much wider, but also the story of maritime history since the Seagull is extremely interesting in this regard. In addition, Galeb will have an accommodation and catering part, but to a much lesser extent than the museum part. Namely, it is planned that the museum and public will occupy approximately 4.000 square meters of the ship, and accommodation and catering only 1.000 square meters.The museum’s holdings will include all existing ship equipment, existing illustrative materials, such as photo and video materials, copies of documentation on the construction and history of the ship, archives of articles, books and other textual contributions related to the Seagull. Visitors who have stayed and worked on the ship during their lifetime will be able to leave a video of their experiences, donate documentation and exhibits.The exhibition will feature a number of interactive content and questionnaires, and the open decks return to their old glory by restoring a wooden floor made of teak, lighting and awnings, with modern museological additions.The ship museum will be adapted for people in wheelchairs as well as for the blind. For the renovation of the ship Galeb and one of the most beautiful baroque palaces in this part of Croatia, built for the administrative building of the former Rijeka Sugar Factory, today part of the so-called complex “Benčić”, the City and Rijeka and partners, the Tourist Board of the City of Rijeka and the University of Rijeka, approved 68,891,606, 18 kuna grants from EU funds, or 85% of total project costs.This is the program “Tourist valorization of representative monuments of Rijeka’s industrial heritage” for which funds were obtained from the European Regional Development Fund – Operational Program “Competitiveness and Cohesion”, through the Ministry of Regional Development and EU funds and the Central Financing and Contracting Unit (CFCA). ).The goal of the project is to create a cultural and tourist destination that includes new ones cultural and tourist contents developed within the representative monuments of Rijeka’s industrial heritage into a common and unique cultural and tourist product which contributes to tourist recognition and attendance and sustainable development at the local and regional level. The program includes the creation of a new cultural and tourist route, as well as scientific, educational and promotional activities that promote the project and sensitize the general public to cultural heritage.The remaining funds in the amount of approximately HRK 12 million must be provided by the City of Rijeka from other sources. In accordance with the propositions of the Tender, the City of Rijeka requested HRK 7,066,736.48, and the result is expected during September.Sugar Palace and the ship Galeb, a representative of protected cultural monuments, will also be part of the European Capital of Culture 2020 project. Also, as part of the implementation of this project, the Croatian Museum Council approved a museum exhibition on June 12, which will be located in these facilities after the renovation of the Sugar Palace and the Galeb. The Šećerana Palace will become the seat of the Museum of the City of Rijeka, which will also include the ship Galeb.Upon completion of the reconstruction and furnishing, the facilities on a total of 9.524,9 m2 will have multiple cultural and commercial purposes: for permanent museum exhibitions, temporary exhibitions, creative workshops, summer cinema, thematic conferences, accommodation facilities and a range of commercial services directly related to cultural heritage.SUGAR SHOP Sugar Palace the cultural property has been protected since 1970.

The realization of the museum content will achieve a synthesis of presenting the historical and cultural value of the Palace itself with the presentation of significant historical and cultural heritage that in the best possible way testifies to the historical significance of Rijeka, while creating a significant landmark in the development of urban cultural tourism.Koncept stalnog postava zasniva se na dvije osnove – prva se zasniva na pričama koje pripovijedaju oslikane i štukatura dekorirane dvorane Palače, dok se druga zasniva na zbirkama Muzeja grada Rijeke.Stalni postav “Doba šećera i globalizacija” bit će smješten za 1. i 2. katu te je koncipiran pomoću sljedećih tematskih cjelina:  Moć šećera, Mletački lav i carski orao, Revolucija i parni stroj, Prvi torpedo na svijetu , Južni pol Srednje Europe, More, globalizacija, Amerika, Između sjevera i juga, Mirisi i boje Istoka, Došašće, egzodus, novi život – Rijeka i svijet.So, the first and second floors will be the museum’s exhibition spaces. On the second floor, in a large hall and a smaller so-called hunting lounge, various cultural events will be able to take place. On the third floor there will be spaces for the work of the curator and other accompanying staff. In the attic there will be technical spaces for museums and storage. A new staircase for evacuation will be built along the eastern facade of the building.The palace was built as the administrative building of a sugar factory in 1752, at the initiative of the Trieste-Rijeka company. After the fire of 1785, it was significantly renovated and equipped with baroque interiors with wall paintings and stucco.U 19. stoljeću služila je kao upravna zgrada tvornice duhana, a potom i tvornice motora “Rikard Benčić”. Predstavlja najkvalitetniju baroknu palaču na istočnoj jadranskoj obali, čija je izgradnja označila početak industrijskog razvoja Rijeke. Unutrašnjost zgrade bogato je ukrašena štukaturama, freskama i keramičkim pećima.GOLEB SHIPlast_img read more

first_imgPlainfield, In. — Hot weather can lead to higher energy bills as Duke Energy Indiana customers try to stay cool this summer. The company is offering free tools and tips to help customers manage those costs.“We know that May and June brought above-average temperatures in our Indiana service territory, and according to our company meteorologists, that trend will continue in July and August,” said Melody Birmingham-Byrd, Duke Energy Indiana state president. “We want to make sure our customers have the information and tools they need to help control their energy costs.”Duke Energy offers free programs and tools to help customers better understand and manage their energy expenses. Keep in mind that the further your thermostat setting is from the actual temperature outside, the more energy you’ll use. Here are some tips to help manage costs:Budget Billinggives customers better control over their energy spending by establishing predictable monthly payments.Our online savings calculatorshelp customers understand how their homes use energy – and how they can potentially reduce their consumption and better manage their summer bills.Customers can also sign up to receive High Bill Alertsfor when adverse weather is projected to increase their electric bills by at least 30 percent and $30 compared to historical usage.Customers with smart meters cancheck online to view their daily usage tool. Smart meters collect usage information by the hour, so checking spikes throughout the month – by day and even hour – can show what appliances and behaviors are increasing their bill.Set your AC to the comfortable setting that meets your lifestyle needs. Hot summer days can mean higher energy bills. The further your thermostat setting is from the temperature outside, the higher your energy bill will be.Change or clean your air filters monthly. A dirty air filter can make a cooling system work harder, which uses more energy.Inspect and service your HVAC. Have your HVAC system checked by a qualified heating and air conditioning contractor to make sure it is operating efficiently. This will also help extend the life of the system.Don’t cool an empty house. If you’ll be out and about, adjust or program your thermostat to work around your schedule.Close the blinds. Shutting blinds, drapes and shades during the hottest part of the day can keep the sun’s rays from heating your house.Grill outdoors. Cooking in the oven and on the stovetop creates a lot of indoor heat. Help save energy by firing up the grill outdoors, or prepare meals that don’t require cooking.Use fans in occupied rooms. They circulate air to supplement air conditioning. Make sure the fans are set to operate in a counterclockwise direction.Turn off unnecessary lights. Be sure to turn off lights when you leave a room. Lights emit heat and cause your air conditioning system to work harder.Replace incandescent bulbs with energy-efficient lighting options. LEDs use up to 90 percent less energy than traditional bulbs and last at least 15 times longer.Seal air leaks with caulking and weather stripping. And keep the door closed as much as you can to keep the cool air inside.Eligible homeowners in Indiana can get a free home energy assessment, which includes an Energy Efficiency Starter Kit containing LEDs, an energy-efficient showerhead, and switch and outlet energy seals.Duke Energy partners with local agencies to help low-income customers who may struggle to pay their energy bills. Please visit the company’s website or call 800.521.2232 to learn more about the special assistance programs available to Indiana customers.In addition, financial emergencies may occur from time to time. Duke Energy strongly encourages customers to call 800.521.2232 to learn about payment arrangements if they receive a disconnection notice and cannot pay before the disconnection date.last_img read more
