“I found myself in the deep heart of the deep sea. It was the fairies themselves who brought me here, on an unkown date when the globe fell asleep and no one could see me. I am in the empire of adventures, in the miracle of events. I finally experienced what the world has forgotten. And I became the owner of a mystery.

Tin Ujević, Nit u srcu mora: Komiža na Visu, 1930

Build with Us

We’re literally starting from scratch, with a few hectares of land and an old stone house in the hills of one of the farthest islands in the Adriatic Sea. We will need years and decades to build ISSA. So if you like what we are doing, even a small donation will go a long way.
