Ottoman merchants in the Adriatic
Maria Pia Pedani, 2008, original scientific article

Abstract: In the 15th century sultans discovered the economic importance of the Adriatic. They accepted doges' rule on this sea but, at the end of the 16th century, the presence of Christian and Muslim pirates marred the relations between the two states. Ottoman merchants used to cross the Adriatic to reach the markets of Venice and Ancona. Besides regular trade there was also smuggling: above all arms were exported to the Empire while wheat went westwards. Several links united the two commercial communities: for instance, subjects of the Republic embarked sometimes on Ottoman ships; in the ports of the Serenissima the sultan's merchants used to pay the same customs as Venetians and, sometimes, they also insured themselves with Venetian companies. The wars of the end of the 17th century put a momentary stop to Muslim commercial activities in Venice and in the Adriatic. However, at the beginning of the following century, Albanian vessels charged with Ottoman goods appeared again at St. Mark's docks, even if soon after, in the 1720s', short-sighted Venetian protectionist politics pushed them to prefer the port of Trieste.

Tihotapstvo Istrank v 20. stoletju v kontekstu njihovih življenjskih zgodb
Vida Rožac-Darovec, 2006, original scientific article

Abstract: For Istrian women, smuggling was before, during and after the Second World War an established practice of survival, dictated on the one hand by social distress and on the other by the near-frontier position, which has through the course of history often generated smuggling operations. We should also stress the influence of Trieste, which thanks to the many possibilities for development of secondary activities that it offered bound the neighbouring population to it with very strong ties. And when Trieste offered no sales possibilities, Istrians resorted to illegal activities, if necessary, to secure extra income. The method that proved suitable for studying this problem is that of questioning, considering that such activities are not recorded in written sources. This way we were able to understand the causes, forms and strategies of a phenomenon that would otherwise have been lost to history. The financial contribution made by female smugglers also affected their mentalities-they were not helpless beings in need of protection, but rather self-assured, independent and brave women. Two examples, our informants Emilija and Jolanda, despite having been spared no blows by fate still profess a great deal of contentedness with their lives. Although the women's important contribution to the household budget undoubtedly influenced their position within the family, it would be illusory to speak of parity, as the tradition of the male-centred society, repeatedly generated by the Church, was strongly anchored in the mentality of the people of that period. The position of the Istrian women was therefore ambivalent. While their roles may not have been visible in public, the women had a strong and important role inside the family.
