Repyartrium Tunnel Parenzana
Exhibition 18. ­ 20. June 2010, Portorož Slovenia

My friend, painter Repy Repija come to an intriguing idea to prepare an exhibition in a 550m long tunnel of ex-Narrow Gauge Railway Parenzana , leading from Trieste, Italy across a coastal part of Slovenia to Pore, Croatia. 550 m long tunnel Valeta is situated in Slovenia and connects Strunjan and Portorož.

The Narrow Gauge Railway Parenzana was aborted before II.WW, but most of the tunnels and buildings along the ex-Parenzana railway line are now in use on a different way.

More information for Narrow Gauge Railway Parenzana you can find on following link:


President of Marathon club Umag, ing. Predrag Živković,organizational motor of International Essence SF Ultra Marathon “Parenzana – The Route of health and friendship”, Trieste /ITA – Pore /CRO, 123.8 km supported Repy Repija’s event and helped in realization of the project.

100 artworks on the exhibition Repyartrium Tunnel Parenzana

Repy Repija decided to exhibit 100 artworks in acrylic technique / format 90 x 90 cm / along the sides of tunnel, 50 of them at each side.
