On the Dubrovnik City Wall
The fort was important to the safety of the city, so the walls were well fortified. They knew that Italian aristocrats had assumed power in their states and declared themselves as absolute rulers. The aristocrats of Dubrovnik did not trust their own kind. So, in case of a mutiny, the guns from the city walls could bomb the east corner of Fort Lovrijenac. This indicates how much the citizens of Dubrovnik loved freedom and the republican system.
