People living in Venice are not the same as the Venetian elite. Most of the Venetian Aristocracy are of the New or Old houses, most of which fucked off to other places. Artists in Venetia are there to amuse people of higher economic or political status with their pretentious junk because rich and powerful people don't like the "profane" public culture of the people which is cultural Christianity for Europa. Only a few of said artists get invited into actual elite Venetian mask parties like what Dali had done.
