Why is this website called "Defora"?

The dalmatian coast of Croatia was under the rule of the venetian

government for more than three centuries.

Thus many words on Korcula have their origins in the italian language.

"Defora" in old venetian dialect means "from the outside" and is

the name of a part on the south-eastern coast of Korcula,

directing to the open sea (Italy).

Since Defora has a unique countryside and great fishing areas

it is very special to me and many other people on the island.
