Krsan – Chersano: “Krsonski pir”

Few years later he sold it to Giorgio and Antonio von Kerschan or Karsan, the successors of the family de Pisino.

In 1450 Giorgio von Kerschan asked Venetians to give him the control over Sumber feud that was controlled by Venetians and Venetians accepted the request with a condition that Krsan maintains good relationship with Venice.

The successors of Giorgio were: Andrea, Gaspare I (1503) and Gaspare II. Later on Giorgio II was the lord of Krsan. This was at the end of the 16th century when the preparation of the war with Uskoci started. Giorgio II in that period led different attacks against Venetians and in 1600 Venetians arrested Giorgio II in Roc. The next year in Kopar he was sentenced to death penalty and executed.

After Giorgio II was executed the castle was given by Venetians to Count Giuseppe Rabatta, the uncle of the von Kerschan family. Uskoci army killed him in Sinj on December 31st, 1601. In 1612 Venetians occupied the Castle and during the war with Uskoci in 1614, 1615 and 1617 the defence system of the Castle was organized by Gian Francesco de Fin.

In 1637 de Fin family bought the feud and in 1643 they became Barons of Krsan. In 1666 the feud was sold to Prince Auersperg and later on passed to his successor Giovanni Vicardo. In 1699 de Fin became the owner of the feud again due to a victory in a twenty years old law litigation with Auersperg for the low price they received in 1666 transaction.

Later on De Fin sold the feud to family Rampelli, Barons of Kascerga, and in 1735, the last successor of Rampelli family, Eleonora Angelica, married Baron Giuseppe Dell’Argento. Later on Krsan passed to the family Susani and in end to the Count Teonetti from Plomin.

During the Austrian reform in 1814 Krsan became a municipality but was always part of the Auersperg’s district that was administered from Belaj.

After the First World War passed to Italy and after the Second World War became part of Yugoslavia (Croatia).

During the Italian Fascist period in Istria many Istrian families suffered from the regime or had to leave Istria. Fascism in Istria applied various repressive measures mostly towards Slav populations and this created the Antifascist Movement. The Second World War was a very painful experience for the Istrian population and many innocent Istrians, both Slav and Latin, died during that war.

After the second World War Krsan became part of Yugoslavia (Croatia). There were three agreements between Yugoslavia and Italy which established that Istria would become a part of Yugoslavia: Paris Agreement of 1947, London Memorandum of 1954 and the Osimo Agreement reached in 1975. In the first decade after the Second World War many Istrians, especially those living in towns and villages that for centuries were part of the Venice Republic, decided to leave Istria.

In 1991 with the fall of Yugoslavia and the founding of the Republic of Croatia, the internal republic boundaries were recognised as the state boundaries and Krsan is today part of Croatia.

In 2013 Krsan became part of the European Union. You can not change the past but you can try to learn from it. The main aim of the European Union founders was to build a system that could avoid future wars and future refugees in Europe as I explain in COSMOPOLITE.
