Faculty of Economics & Business - Zagreb

EXHIBITION "FERNANDO GUERRA: PORTUGUESE ARCHITECTURE" within the project “EU countries in the lens of education”

The Faculty of Economics and Business, University of Zagreb is strategically oriented towards the internationalization of its study programs and has become a center of economic and business education for students from various countries of the European Union and beyond through its accredited programs. In order to provide domestic and international students and other members of the academic community with the opportunity to educate themselves about the similarities and differences between the countries of the European Union and to promote greater student mobility, the idea arose to launch the project EU states in the focus of education. The initiator of the project is the Faculty of Economics & Business of the University of Zagreb, which will organize a series of exhibitions on cultural, educational, economic, and other important aspects that characterize each country, in cooperation with the embassies of EU member states. The project is implemented with the support of the Representation of the European Commission in Croatia. The organization of exhibitions is carried out by the Library and Documentation Center (LDC) and the European Documentation Center (EDC-LDC) of the Faculty of Economics & Business - Zagreb. The exhibitions will be open to the public in the premises of LDC and EDC.

The oldest European country, Portugal is one of the most attractive European tourist destinations thanks to its carefully preserved cultural and historical heritage, architecture (10 Portuguese landmarks are on the UNESCO World Heritage List), beautiful coast, excellent food and friendly people. Portuguese is the official language in nine countries, and is spoken by more than 230 million people. One of the oldest European universities is the Portuguese University of Coimbra, founded way back in 1290 and it has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

One of the biggest promoters of Portugal's stunning sights is certainly the architectural photographer and Canon Europe ambassador Fernando Guerra, whose photos are regularly published in prestigious international publications, and six of his photos are part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

You can visit part of this beautiful collection at the exhibition at the Library and Documentation Centre/European Documentation Centre from December 16, 2022 to January 31, 2023, organized in cooperation with the Embassy of Portugal in Croatia.
