Traces of Hungarians in Italy

Welcome to the virtual exhibition set up by the Hungarian National Archives in cooperation with the Vestigia Research Group at the Péter Pázmány Catholic University, Budapest, and opened on the occasion of the Workshop on Hungarian Document Research, 7 March, 2022.

With the documents presented here, we would like to offer a first impression of the rich and valuable archival material preserved in Italy, which documents different moments in the history of Hungary.

We recommend the exhibition not only to those who are interested in Italian-Hungarian relations, but also to everyone who has not yet had the opportunity to explore the amazing world of archival records. Embark upon this virtual tour through space and time and discover ciphers, maps and plans, royal charters, medieval and early modern Hungary and Europe through the narratives of the contemporaries.

The virtual exhibition was supported by the National Cultural Fund (NKA).
