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. After a few years, the institution became one of the best-performing pro-Polish organizations in Italy. In the article, I point out the Polish and Italian opinions about the activities of this pro-Polish phenomenon in the capital of Piedmont in the first years of its existence.
