Online petition launched Save the island of Biševo from concreting

first_imgPokrenuto je potpisivanje peticije “Spasimo Biševo od betoniranja”​, a možete ju potpisati hereBespravni građevinski radovi koji se trenutno vrše u neposrednom okolišu crkve sv. Silvestra i unutar međa srednjovjekovnog samostana na otoku Biševu narušavaju ambijentalnost i sklad naselja Poje, svojedobnog centra otoka. Peticijom se traži da Konzervatorski odjel u Splitu izađe na teren i zaštiti ovaj arheološki lokalitet od nasrtaja divlje gradnje Rješenjem o preventivnoj zaštiti.Crkva sv. Silvestra nalazi se unutar skladne mikro-povijesne jezgre naselja Poje na otoku Biševu (zaštićeno kulturno dobro RST-0613-1972). Povijesni izvori svjedoče da se uz crkvu nalazio benediktinski samostan darovan redovnicima s Tremita koji je u punoj snazi djelovao tijekom 12. i 13. st. Nad ostacima je samostana, najvjerojatnije tijekom baroka, nastao omanji građevinski sklop kamenih kuća s vrtom koji zajedno s crkvom čini veoma skladnu ambijentalno-povijesnu cjelinu.  “Ovo je jedini način da upozorimo javnost na grubo kršenje zakona i teror koji se trenutačno vrši nad kulturnom i prirodnom baštinom otoka Biševa. Napominjem kako članak 3. Zakona o zaštiti i očuvanju kulturnih dobara nalaže da kulturna dobra bez obzira na vlasništvo, preventivnu zaštitu ili registraciju uživaju zaštitu prema odredbama predmetnog zakona. Također, upozoravam kako je još iz vremena zadnje konzervatorske obnove crkve, kada su otkriveni čak i starokršćanski slojevi iz 6. stoljeća, ostalo dosta nedovršenog posla sa strane izvođača radova kao što je otvorena grobnica u kojoj se vide kosti itd. Ovim Vas putem još jednom usrdno molim da zajedničkim naporima pridonesemo zaštiti još uvijek netaknutog krajolika i kulturne baštine pučinskog otoka Biševa” ističe pokretač peticije Stjepan Tafra.Spasimo Biševo od betonizacije, a podršku možete dati herelast_img read more
