The history of the Luštica Peninsula is an inseparable and very important part of the history of the Gulf of Kotor (Boka kotorska). Although they were not as famous as the seamen, shipmen and merchants of Perast, Dobrota, Prčanj or Kotor, the denizens of Luštica through past ages represented one of the more important links of this side of the Adriatic coast with the Apennine Peninsula and Venice. The research into the course of immigration and presence of the denizens of Luštica (as well as of immigrants coming from the region of Krtole) in Venice is also a part of the comprehensive study of the centuries-long history of the community of immigrants from the eastern Adriatic in the city. The article, based on the study of historical sources kept in the State Archive of Venice and those kept in the seat of the Croatian Confraternity of SS. George and Tryphon, explores the basic components of the everyday life and activity of immigrants from Luštica in Venice within the period from the sixteenth to the eighteenth century. Thus, it shows the chronological scope of migrations, the frequency of their appearance in the sources and the way in which they were noted there, along with the immigrants’ professions and economic potential, as well as the places of their residences in Venice. Furthermore, research attention is paid to the private life of the immigrants of Luštica in the circles of their families and relatives, as well as their ties of friendship and relationships based on business, in the first place those with other members of the Croatian immigrant community and other immigrants from the eastern Adriatic area. The attitude of the immigrants from Luštica towards ecclesiastical institutions (churches, convents, monasteries, confraternities and hospitals) in Venice is also explored, and special attention is paid to the immigrants who were during their lives in Venice particularly connected with and active in the Croatian Confraternity of SS. George and Tryphon. At the end of the article it is concluded that the history of Luštica, as well as the history of the rest of the Gulf of Kotor, should be researched more systematically and more efficiently within the Croatian historiography.
