About Ivo pl. Tartaglia

Ivo Tartaglia (born in Split 1880 – died in Lepoglava prison 1949), was the mayor of Split in the period 1918 - 1928. During his tenure, the city experienced significant urban progress and flourished in many ways: it got electrification, railway junction with Zagreb and became the largest national port in the newly established Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. During his mandate as mayor, the waterfront (Riva) of Split was renewed, palm trees were planted, and ports expanded and modernized, an urban plan for the development of the city was accepted. New apartments for workers and civil servants were built, the existing hospital expanded and renovated, a fire station, schools and nursing homes were built, a new cemetery on Lovrinac was opened, as well as preparations for the construction of a new hospital on Firule. Ivo Tartaglia undertook his duty of Mayor without pay, as he considered his income from his law office to be sufficient. With the establishment of the Primorska banovina in 1929, Ivo Tartaglia was appointed its first ban, but 1932, he submitted his resignation to the office and moved closer towards the policies of the Croatian Peasant Party. He was also a chairman of the Adriatic Guard (Jadranska straža), an organization which strongly supported the maritime orientation of the state, and finally, he was active in charity work.

Apart his political work, he is also well known for his love of art; he was known as a patron, bibliophile and a collector; he owned the largest private art collection in Dalmatia and from 1939 he was a chairman of the Croatian Society of Arts.

During WW2, Tartaglia was imprisoned by the Italians and after the war, the communists sentenced him to 7 years in prison due to his "unwilingness to cooperate". He died just two weeks after being imprisoned.
