Who was Alexander Lombardini?
Alexander Lombardini (1851 – 1897) was a famous Žilina´s revivalist, historian, lawyer and archivist. In 1874 his ''Brief history of the Free town of Žilina'' was edited. A seventy-five page book has been quoted up till now, as it comes out from original municipal documents. A. Lombardini wrote it in Slovak and therefore created the first Slovak history of the town. That is why Lombardini is considered to be the first promoter of the town of Žilina.
