In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the Florio family was among the leading families of shipowners and traders in Prčanj, Boka Kotorska (The Bay of Kotor). Their prominent members contributed to the development of lively economic and cultural ties between the two Adriatic coasts. Based on the available historiographic material, as well as archive sources from the Historical Archives in Kotor and the Archives of the Confraternity of SS Giorgio e Trifone in Venice, this article aims to trace the lives and activities of certain members of the Florio family. Main emphasis is placed on their participation in the shipping and maritime commerce of Boka, and broader of the Adriatic, but also their role in the social, economic and cultural history of Prčanj. A separate section deals with the participation of the Florios in the Croatian Confraternity of SS Giorgio e Trifone in Venice, around which most of Croatian immigrants gathered. The author concludes that the sea- and tradeoriented families of Boka represent a most resourceful research topic, the aspects of which are still understudied and moderately evaluated.
