Presented paper: Eight Years Following the Traces of Giuseppe and Amalia Nizzoli: Preliminary Results of the Nizzoli Project

The Chancellor of the Austrian Consulate in Egypt, Giuseppe Nizzoli, and his wife Amalia Sola represent two prominent personalities who contributed much to the history of Egyptology: they sold a remarkable number of Egyptian collections and left an important book of memories of those years in Egypt. Nevertheless, they are frequently neglected in Egyptological studies and several aspects of their lives are still unclear. In 2008, the present authors started a long-term project to re-investigate of these two personalities, following their footsteps through Italy as well as across Europe.

The paper presented the preliminary results of the Nizzoli Project, providing information concerning professional and private lives of Giuseppe and Amalia.
