Summary/Abstract: A diary from the only trip to Italy ever made by Maurycy Dzieduszycki (1813–1877), a conservative Galician writer, historian, art connoisseur, and politician. The author describes the sights and monuments visited during his travels, as well as meetings, mostly with representatives of the clergy, church dignitaries, and Poles who lived in Italy. In Florence, he visits the youngest (among his thirteen children), a 14-year-old daughter treated there for tuberculosis, who dies the day of his arrival. He is assisted with funeral arrangements by his friend, Teofil Lenartowicz, a Polish poet and sculptor established in Italy. One of the reasons for Dzieduszycki’s trip to Italy was a private audience with Pius IX to update the Pontiff on the assistance for the Uniate clergymen who fled to Galicia from the diocese of Chełm abolished by the tsar in 1875.
