MARCO POLO - Croatian Adventurer
The Marco Polo Coat of Arms includes four chickens. In Italian, Polo means chicken or fowl; in Croatian Pilich means chicks or chickens. Accident or coincidence? The Arms are registered in Dalmatia.

Henry S. Hart in his book, Venetian Adventurer: Marco Polo, states, "These merchants were Maffeo and Nicolo Polo, sons of one Marco Polo, a descendant of an old Dalmatian Family which had come from Sibenik, Dalmatia, and settled in Venice in the 11th Century." Hart goes on to say, "The crews of the Venetian ships were freemen, so many of them Slavonians (Croatians) from the Dalmatian Coast that the long dock by St. Mark's Square was and is known as the Riva degli Schiavoni (Slavonian-Croatian)." Marko Polo was the greatest explorer of all time. More significant than Columbus, he opened to Europe all of Asia, including China, which in turn prompted the discovery of America. Marco Polo had a home on the Island of Korcula in Dalmatia, then a shipbuilding and merchant center of Dalmatia. The merchant and the noble class in Dalmatia did use two names, one Latin-Italian as citizens of Venice and their own Croatian name in their own circles. Bogdanich became Bogdaneo, Mladinich-Mladineo, Arnerich-Arneri and Glavinich-Capogrosso. Some simply used the Latin-Italian meaning of their name, such as Cvietkovich-Florio, Lupis-Vukasinovich or Polo-Pilich.

Genealogy The most prominent researcher and historian of Marco Polo, Sir Henry Yule, In his book Ser Marco Polo 1903, John Murray, London drew a genealogical chart of the Polo Families on pages 5O6-507. Marco's daughter, Moreta, married Dolfln; daughter, Fantina, married Bragadin. Vinko lvancevic in his article "Stone Carved Coats of Arms on Korcula" in Croatian Academy of Arts and Sciences, No. 381-1978 has the Illustrated Coats of Arms of Dolfin and Bragadin. On the same, the wife of Marino Gradenigo chooses as her executors, "My mother Dona and my uncle (Barba) Ser Marco Polo." Gradenigo Coats of Arms are also carved in stone on Korcula. She also used the term Barba for uncle, this is Dalmatian dialect for uncle. Zio means uncle In Italian. Bragadin is cited on page 125 In History of Medieval Croatia by Guidescu as a Croatian. Marco's genealogy also listed a brother married to a Sagredo-this Sagredo is registered in the Dalmatian nobility and states In German: "Welches aus Sebenico stammt" or originated in Sibenik. It is significant in his genealogy the association with Korcula and Dalmatia. The Croatian Census of Population for 1948 lists DEPOLO (De-of Polo) on the Island of Korcula with 40 individuals in 15 families and the city of Drnis, Dalmatia approximately 20 kilometers from Sibenik (the origins of Polo) has over 25 families with more than 130 individuals named PILICH. Polo is found in only two families far to the north. Courtesy of the Croatian Genealogical and Heraldic Society.

Faust Vrancic
The first technical discoveries are related to the name of Faust Vrancic (lat. Faustus Verantius, italianized name Fausto Veranzio, hungarized name Faustus Verancsics, 1551-1617). It is known that he collaborated with Tycho Brache and Johannes Keppler. Vrancic was fluent in at least seven languages. At the court of King Rudolph II in Hradcani in Prague (Rudloph II was Roman-German Emperor and Croatian-Hungarian King) he worked as his secretary, and in that period completed his important dictionary of five most noble European languages (Dictionarium quinque nobilissimarum Europeae linguarum: Latinae, Italicae, Germanicae, Dalmaticae et Hungaricae) and published in Venice in 1595. He is best known for his book of inventions in Machinae Novae, published also in Venice in 1595. The book was financially supported by the French King Louis XIII, and the Toscan Duke Cosimo II de Medici. Among his numerous inventions the most famous is the parachute, which he tested in Venice. It is true that Leonardo da Vinci had a similar idea earlier, but he made only a rough sketch of it, of pyramidal shape, while Vranic's parachute had rectangular shape, as today.

Ruđer Bošković
In his lifetime a personality of high esteem in European circles, however, it was only the recent times that defined how he was ahead of his time and, in many things, a precursor of scientific achievements. Ruđer Bošković, one of the most famous Dubrovniker of all times, excelled with intellect, imagination and intuition with indelible traces in European history of science.

Ruđer Bošković, one of the greatest scholars of his time, was born in Dubrovnik on May 18, 1711. At 14, after an education at the Jesuit college in Dubrovnik (Collegium Ragusinum), he went to Rome to pursue his studies with the Jesuits there. Before departing for France and England in 1759, a professor of Physics and Mathematics, he taught at the Jesuit schools in Fermo and Rome. At his most prolific years, he published some 40 treatises and prepared his most relevant works on natural philosophy. Some of his papers deal with issues on light, on the law of continuity, and on the laws of natural powers. Bošković also made his name when he measured the two meridian degrees in the Papal State by using apparatus and gauging he himself improved. Traveling extensively throughout Europe, he stooped in Paris and Vienna, where he published his most important work on Philosophiae maturalis theoria redacta ad unicam legem virium in Natura existentium (known under a shorter title as A Theory of Natural Philosophy). In London he studied lunar and solar eclipses. A tempest prevented his ship from arriving in Istanbul from Venice in time to observe the passage of Venus by the Sun - disembarked at the islet of Tened, he studied the ruins of Troy instead. From Istanbul, having missed the desired experience of an unusual encounter of the planets, he set of to Bulgaria, then to Moldavia and then to Poland, the voyage minutely described in his diary.

In 1770 he moved to Milan to reach at the new department of astronomy and optics, but having failed the appointment to the director of the observatory in which he had invested his own money and time, disillusioned, he moved to Venice. Though away almost all his lifetime, Bošković never lost his links with Dubrovnik, maintained especially through a regular correspondence with his elder brother Baro and sister Anica. He never stopped to care for the welfare of his native town. And was always ready to answer requests by the Dubrovnik Senate and to assist in diplomatic and political issues. Reflecting upon a return home, yet incessantly busy, he went to Milan to prepare for the publication of his five-volume work "Pieces from Optics and Astronomy ", where he died in 1787.
Ruđer Bošković was not only a scholar, but, to the fashion of his time, a Latin poet too. His poetic versatility shines in De solis ac Lunae defectubis, describing abstract astronomic theories in easy-flowing, elegant hexameters. He was a fellow of the Roman Arcadia that published his poetry in its editions.

In his lifetime he was a personality of high esteem in European scientific circles. However, only recent times have defined just how much Bošković was ahead of his time and, in many things, a precursor of scientific achievements. Ruđer Bošković, one of the most famous Dubrovnikers of all times, excelled with an intellect, imagination and intuition that have left traces in the history of European science.

Marko Polo se u svijetu još nikada nije spominjalo kao Hrvat, Dalmatinac ili sl. , uvjek je spominjen kao Italijan ili u najmanju ruku kao gradjanin Venecije - ali joč nikada čuo nisam da kažu - Marko Polo, Hrvat (ili rodjen u Hrvatskoj) krenuo je na dugi put ka istoku...

Čak se i za njegovog oca kaže da je venecijanjski trgovac i putnik, porijeklom iz dalmacije, ali talijanskog porijekloa !

A sasvim druga tema je da se čak i sumnja dali je marko polo uopšte i stigao tako daleko...jer kineski zid nije ni jednom rječju spomenu kao ni neke druge: da kinezi jedu štapičima, da su kineskinjama veuzane noge u čudnim sandalama, nije ni spomenuo da se tada u svim djelovima kine več upotrebljavala tiskana knjiga,ništa nije pomenuto o čaju ili o kineskomk pismu koje bi jednom europejcu morali izgledati jako čudno itd....a Marko Polo, kako navodni visoki činovnik u kineskom carstvu bi trebao sa svim tim biti upoznat !!!

Znanstvenici i povjesničari pretpostavljaju, da je marko polo stigao do centralne azije , maximalno do zapadnih granica Mongolije pod Kublai-kanom, ali nikada do kine...a njegove priče baziraju se na pričama
drugih putnika, koji su se kretali izemdju južne i centralne azije prema kin i i nazad...a osim toga, u kini nije nadjeno niti jedno jedino slovo o jednom europljaninu koji je (navodno) tri godine vršio jednu od važnih pozicija u kineskom carstvu...

Još nešto: u Europi je jako rašireno mišljenje da je Polo donjeo nudle iz kine...Ustvari, nudle su koristili več stari grci i rimljani, a način da se nudle suše i time duže mogu sačuvati im je več tada bilo poznato od arapa...jedino što je Polo (mođda) donjeo u Europu, bila je priča o jako dugom nudlama koje mongolci koriste...špageti

ps: osim toga sam mišljenja, da mi imao dostza poznatih i čivenih otkrivača, znanstvenika i umjuetnka, a da bi se morali kititi sa jednim talijanjskim \"prevarantom\", čija je jedina zasluga bila da je sa svojim pričama pšotaknuo ljude da stvarno poklrenu komunikaciju između ewurope i dalekog istoka

Marko Polo
Izvor: Wikipedija
Skoči na: orijentacija, traži
Marco PoloMarko Polo (Korčula, 1254. - Venecija, 8. siječnja 1324.), Mletački trgovac, koji je postao poznat zbog zapisa o svom putovanju kroz Kinu. Rođen je na otoku Korčuli.

[uredi] Životopis
Oko mjesta njegovog rođenja postoje mnoga sporenja (Venecija, Istanbul, Korčula i Blato na Korčuli), no najvjerojatnija i znanstveno najutemeljenija verzija je ipak mjesto Korčula na istoimenom otoku. Naime, ulica i dio grada (po postojećim zapisima koji postoje i danas) u kojem se danas nalazi tzv. kuća Marka Pola, odgovaraju prostoru koji od najranijih dana pripada upravo obitelji Polo. O podrijetlu imena također ima sporenja, talijansko ili hrvatsko podrijetlo, ali najlogičnija se čini pretpostavka da je ime slavenskog (hrvatskog) podrijetla i dolazi od ptice vodarice koja se u tom kraju nazivala pol. Tome u prilog ide i sam grb obitelji Polo koji u sebi sadrži slike četiri ptice vodarice, štoviše i sam Marko se potpisivao s Pol, a ne latiniziranim Polo.

Nikola, Markov otac i njegov brat Marko, poduzetni trgovci s Istokom, prevalili su između 1261. i 1269. godine put do Kine, priključivši se poslanstvu perzijskog kana Hulagua velikom mongolskom kanu Kublaju, koji je u to vrijeme imao svoju prijestolnicu u današnjem Pekingu.

Polo na kanovom dvoruIz Kine su se vratili kao Kublaj kanovi poslanici papi s pismom u kojem Kublaj kan moli papu da mu pošalje učene ljude koji bi poučavali u njegovu Carstvu. Kad su oni s papinim odgovorom i s dva dominikanca krenuli ponovo prema Mongoliji god. 1271., poveli su sa sobom i 17 godišnjeg Marka Pola. Nakon četiri godine putovanja, god. l275., stigli su do Kublaja. Marko je Polo postao kanov pouzdanik i ostao u njegovoj službi punih 17 godina.

Proputovao je mnoge zemlje Dalekog istoka sve do današnje Burme i Vijetnama i upoznao mnoge jezike i običaje tih naroda. Godine 1292. pružila se Marku Polu, njegovu ocu i stricu prilika da se vrate natrag i nakon tri godine putovanja stigoše god. 1295. u Veneciju.

Preko 25.000 prijeđenih kilometara i 24 godine trajanja, s koje su donijeli mnoštvo ˝čudesa˝ u Europu, zbir je njihove legendarne odiseje.

Tri godine nakon povratka, god. 1298., Marko Polo je zarobljen u sukobu đenovljanskog i mletačkog brodovlja kod otoka Korčule. Odveden je u Genovu i bačen u tamnicu.

Tad je Marko Polo imao vremena razmišljati o dogodovštinama sa svog dugog i zanimljivog putovanja po istočnim zemljama. Te svoje doživljaje on priča svom \"cimeru\" u zatvoru Rustichelliju, koji ih je zabilježio na francuskom jeziku u knjizi: Livre des merveilles du monde.

Danas je ta knjiga poznata pod talijanskim naslovom: Il millione, i druga je najprevođenija i najčitanija knjiga u ljudskoj povijesti nakon Biblije.

Tisuće pustolova i istraživača nadahnjivali su se njegovim pričama, te su kretali u nepoznato, željevši vidjeti i doživjeti barem djelić onoga o čemu je Marko pričao. Najpoznatiji među njima je bio Kristofor Kolumbo.

[uredi] O knjizi ˝Il millione˝
Markova knjiga imala je presudan utjecaj u doba velikih otkrića. Zemljopisne karte Dalekog istoka stoljećima su izrađivane baš po njegovu putopisu.

Njemački je kartograf Johannes Schöner zapisao 1533. godine: \"Iza Sinae i Ceresa (mitskih gradova središnje Azije)... otkrića mnogih zemalja zasluga su Marka Pola... obale tih zemalja nedavno su oplovili Kolumbo i Amerigo Vespucci u svojim putovanjima po Indijskom oceanu.\" Pokazat će se, dakako, da Kolumbo nije stigao do predjela koje je opisao Marko Polo, jer ga je na putu do njih zaustavilo kopno koje će po Amerigu biti prozvano - Amerika. Ali, preko crte obzora, Kolumba i druge velike istraživače privlačili su upravo Markovi živi prikazi. Poznato je da je Kristofor Kolumbo (1451.-1506.) posjedovao jedno latinsko izdanje Markove knjige i u bilješkama koje je pravio tokom putovanja uspoređivao vlastita otkrića s mjestima koja je Marko opisao.

[uredi] Zanimljivost
Poznato je da se riječ (broj) milion (milijun) dovodi u vezu s Markom Polom. Ali zašto? Kada se je vratio u Veneciju pričao je svoje doživljaje, čak i megalomanski uvećavajući činjenice, opise i brojke. Ubrzo je po tome postao poznat, te su dotadašnje \"normalne\" brojčane oznake i relacije postale premale da bi pratile njegova opisivanja. Ali za broj 1 000 000 tada nije bilo posebnog brojčanog izraza nego se je koristio naziv tisuću tisuća. Kako je njegovo drugo ime bilo Emilio (dakle puno ime: Marco Emilio Polo), to se ubrzo među mletačkim pukom proširila kovanica \"emilioni\", iz čega je, sitnim modificiranjem, \"rođen\" novi broj.

jako volim da mislite za sebe sa logikom i sto je bilo u 1200 je sigurno jako daleko

sve zavisi jel Marko Polo zabiljezijo svoje korake , tada dali je netko pisao iza njega sve sto je radio, kao sto je bijo obicaj staroj Grckoj koja se trudila zabiljeziti sve od jos i danija vremena

jel Marko Polo bijo Hrvat, sigurno se Rodijo u Hvatskoj to se ne demantira.

Ja ga nedam kao Hrvat, On je Moj.
a mi Hrvati prelako Davamo nase na sve strane.

Temu sam zamislila nedavno kad sam bila u Hrvatski Konzulat..

David Schwarz (aviation inventor)

David Schwarz.David Schwarz (1852 - 1897) a Croatian aviation pioneer of Jewish ancestry. Commissioned by the German army, he had constructed the first dirigible airship in 1896, which was tested with partial success at Templehof near Berlin, Germany, on November 3, 1897. The propeller belts broke, causing the pilot to lose control and crash the airship. Schwarz died shortly afterwards, before further testing was conducted, supposedly as a result of a heart attack which is attributed to the excitement of receiving a telegram from the German government informing him that his invention has been accepted. Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin, a witness to the first flight, purchased the plans from his widow in 1898. Zeppelin went on to develop a successful line of dirigible airships which bore his name.

Josip (Juan) Vucetic

Josip (Juan) Vucetic (1858-1925), a criminologist and anthropologist born on the island of Hvar, lived in Argentina. He was one of the pioneers of the scientific dactyloscopy (identification by fingerprints) and occupied the position of the director of the Center for Dactiloscopy in Buenos Aires. His method of identification was in use throughout South America. The police school in La Plata is bearing his name: "Escuela de policia Juan Vucetic", as well as the Argentinean Police museum. About 250,000 Croats live in Argentina today. It is interesting that in 1933 the Croatian community in Argentina collected about 50,000 signatures asking for the right of the Croats to live in the delicious and independent state.

Marin Getaldic

Marin Getaldić (Latin: Ghetaldus, Italian: Marino Ghetaldi) (1568 - April 11, 1626, Dubrovnik (Ragusa), then independent city-state in Dalmatia, Croatia) was the most outstanding Croatian scientist of his time. A mathematician and physicist who studied in Italy, England and Belgium, his best results are mainly in physics, especially optics, and mathematics.
Among many books let us mention his Promotus Archimedus published in Rome, in 1603 and De resolutione et compositione mathematica, also Rome, in 1630. Renowned for the application of algebra in geometry and his research in the field of geometrical optics on which he wrote 7 works. He produced a pamphlet with the solutions of 42 geometrical problems, Variorum problematum colletio, in 1607 and set grounds of algebraization of geometry. His contributions to geometry had been cited by Dutch physicist Christian Huygens and Edmond Halley (Halley's comet) in England.

Getaldić was the constructor of the parabolic mirror (2/3m or 66cm in diameter), kept today at the National Maritime Museum in London. During his sojourn in Padua he met Galileo Galilei, with whom he corresponded regularly. He was a good friend to the French mathematician François Viète. The fact that the post of professor of mathematics had been offered to him in Leuven in Belgium, at the time one of the most prestigious university centers in Europe, proves his scientific reputation.
He was also engaged in politics and was the envoy of the Dubrovnik Republic in Constantinople in 1606 as well as the member of the Great and Small Council, the political bodies of the Republic

John Malkovich

John Malkovich was born in Christopher, Illinois, to a Croatian father Daniel Malkovich, a state conservation director and publisher of a conservation magazine, and Joe Anne, who owned the Benton Evening News in Benton, Illinois, as well as the Outdoor Illinois.[1] Because of his father's work, the Malkovich family is widely acknowledged as one of the founding families of the environmental movement in Illinois. By high school, he had transformed himself physically and was a star athlete. He transferred to Illinois State University from Eastern Illinois University, with an interest in ecology, but he soon changed his major to theater.

Shortly after dropping out of college, Malkovich took on a series of odd jobs to make ends meet: school bus driver, house painter, office supply store employee, and landscaping. In 1976, Malkovich became a charter member of the Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago, Illinois. He moved to New York City in 1983 and appeared in the play True West. He appeared on Broadway with Dustin Hoffman in Death of a Salesman (1984). Malkovich won an Emmy Award for this role when the play became a television movie. One of his first forays into film was as an extra alongside Terry Kinney, George Wendt, Joan Allen, and Laurie Metcalf in Robert Altman's A Wedding (197.

He made his film debut in Places in the Heart (1984) for which he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role. He got fame in 1988 playing the leading part of Valmont in Stephen Frears' adaptation of Choderlos de Laclos' Dangerous Liaisons. In 1994, he was nominated for an Oscar in the same category for In the Line of Fire (1993). Malkovich also plays the main villain Cyrus "The Virus" Grissom in the movie "Con Air." Though he played the title role in the Charlie Kaufman-penned Being John Malkovich, he is playing a slight variation of himself, as indicated by the character's middle name of "Horatio". Malkovich has a cameo in the movie Adaptation.—also written by Kaufman—appearing as himself during the filming of Being John Malkovich. The Dancer Upstairs, Malkovich's directorial debut, was released in 2002. He recently appeared in Art School Confidential (2006) as a pompous art professor.
