On Sunday, July 7, a concert organised by the Tourist Board of the Town of Rovinj-Rovigno entitled The Most Beautiful Opera and Operetta Arias at the Fantazija was held in the unique setting of the Fantazija Quarry – Cava di Monfiorenzo.

Soloists from Opera b.b., namely Lidija Horvat-Dunjko – soprano, Blanka Tkalčić – mezzosoprano, Siniša Galović – tenor, and Ronald Braus – baritone, and Mario Čopor – piano, performed in front of a large audience.

In the middle of 2022, an EU-funded project dedicated to the preservation and educational and tourism valorisation of this area was completed. The project was run by the Natura Histrica Public Institution, with the Town of Rovinj-Rovigno and the Tourism Board of the Town of Rovinj-Rovigno as project partners and full support from the Istrian County. Thanks to successful realisation of all project ideas, the quarry now boasts state-of-the-art visitor and interpretive infrastructure and offers professional interpretations of the geology and geological phenomena that can be seen at the site. The Visitor Centre of the Fantazija Quarry geological monument has thus become the only site in the Istrian County equipped to receive a wide range of visitors and offering expert-led educational program in geology intended for pupils, students, and the wider interested public. It is open to visitors free of charge every day from 12 noon to 6 p.m.
