Hollywood Walk of Fame Croatian Style

CroatiaIt is not anything like Hollywood Boulevard, adorned with scores of permanent pavement monuments in honour of movie, music, and theatre stars, but Zagreb’s main street Ilica last month got its own…

32 years after Croatian contemporary artist Tomislav Gotovac acted out his famous  performance on Zagreb’s main street, a pavement monument has been laid in his honour.  In 1981 Gotovac performed Zagreb, I love you, which saw him run naked, kissing the asphalt of the capital’s famous Ilica street. The performance shocked Zagreb’s otherwise conservative public.
