The presence of the Dubrovnik citizens in Venice from the 13th to the 18th century is a fact involving specific features not evident among the immigrants from other Eastern Adriatic regions. Their existence in Venice was vastly recognized from the second half of the 15th century to the first half of the 16th century. The immigrants belonged to all social classes, from numerous members of nobility and gentry down to plebeians. Unlike most of the Slav immigrants engaged in less prosperous enterprises, the citizens of Dubrovnik are mentioned as merchants, captains, parsons, public and civil servants. They concentered in Castello, the community they shared with other Slav immigrants. Family and religion played important parts in their everyday life, as well as friends, kin and business associates. The Dubrovnik immigrants were skillful businessmen focusing on financial affairs, trade and real estate, some of which they themselves owned in Venice. Misbehaving individuals were rare in their community as their bad conduct inevitably led to the status of outcasts. The citizens of Dubrovnik proved themselves as outstanding diplomats representing the interests of their own and other countries. Writers, scientists and artists worked and published in Venice contributing to the prosperity of the Lagoon civilization.
