This presentation will highlight some of the most important industrial events that are essential for the development of the region of Istria, Croatia in the XXth century. With shutting down or serious restructuring of industrial plants (mining, shipbuilding, garment industry) this part of Croatia oriented its economy, culture and development mainly towards tourism. This passage towards service economy has a huge influence on communities and relations between people that can be interpreted in terms of post-fordism.
