In honor of our beloved Aunt Vesna… today’s birthday...
The adored Lady of Vesnini dvori usually called by her friends Aunt Vesna, was the first lady of social life for decades in Zadar and Vela Luka, places where she almost was able to pass her time during a year, gathered around her a number of known and unknown, artists and bohemians, politicians and journalists, fishermen, architects, doctors, lawyers.
In her apartment in Zadar where she lived during the winter - also called the "yellow" house – situated in a part of Zadar recognized like as “Foša”, frequently stayed also many Croatian known people like as Vlado Gotovac, Franjo Tudjman, Leo Znidarčić, Miljenko Stancic, and Savka Dabcevic-Kucar's that for her whole life, from childhood, was her greatest friend.
Vesna Matanic was a mother of four children and the wife of the Zadar's physician, researcher in dermatology and a famous Croatian scientist, Dr. Vladimir Matanic, the sister of academics Sime Vucetic and the niece of Blessed Marija Petkovic – in fact now exists the Sanctuary of Blessed Marija of Jesus Crucified Petković in Blato where many pilgrims from all over the world come to visit.
She was friendly with the most famous Croatian intellectuals such as Vesna Parun, Tin Ujević, Luko Paljetak, Branko Gavella, Vojin Bakic, Edo Murtić ...
We will remember her 80th birthday which was celebrated with glamorous hundred guests in the Zadar Marina and symbolically on Valentine's Day (2003), although he was born February 11, but, in fact "whole life was in love with love, beauty, art and friendship" as she herself often used to said. That evening her birthday came to congratulate many publicly known from Zadar, Zagreb, Vela Luka and abroad. Her friend then among other things said: “It is never imposed, but her people flocked, and were captivated with its originality...”
Aunt Vesna’s last goodbye was in 2009, but she’s never leaving these places and the hearts of friends and family who loved and loves her… forever with us in our thoughts …
