Forgotten for many years, the history of the Lace School of Isola/Izola was reconstructed by the author after a long archival search. The lecture will outline the school’s 55 years of activity, from the establishment as an affiliation to the Central School of Lacemaking in Vienna, Austria, until the cancellation during the Kingdom of Italy.

The lecture will take place at Telovadnica, address: Rejčeva ulica 1b, Nova Gorica, Slovenia. The multipurpose centre is in the very centre of the city. The lecture will last 30 minutes followed by a 10 minute question and answer period.
