Giuseppe Modrić was born most probably in 1855 in Zadar. He was an author and journalist who traveled in Europe (from Dalmatia to Russia) and South America (Argentina). He combines his journalistic gift with a curiosity about the world and a love for travel. Modrić has undertaken a number of tours around Europe and around the world. Endowed with adventurous attitude and reporter observation, he excellently systematized his impressions in diaries and travelogues. Among his notable titles are La Dalmazia: Romana Veneta Moderna; Note e Ricordi di Viaggio and Repubblica Argentina: Note di Viaggio da Buenos Aires Alla Terra del Fuoco.
