Początki Instytutu Kultury Polskiej im. Attilia Begey’a oczami Polaków i Włochów

The beginnings of the Attilio Begey Institute of Polish Culture through the eyes of Poles and Italians

ABSTRACT. The article focuses on the Attilio Begey Institute of Polish Culture which was created in Turin in 1930, after the death of Attilio Begey in 1928, due to the initiative of Roman Pollak and with Italian and Polish governmental support, as well as with the voluntary help of Italian Polonists.
