The Sobieski Family: history, culture and society. Insights between Rome, Warsaw and Europe. 

The two-day conference will take place in Warsaw on 17 and 18 October 2019 in three different locations: the afternoon session on the first day (17 October) will be hosted by the Wilanów Museum; the morning session will be hosted by the Italian Cultural Institute; the afternoon session of the second day (18 October) will take place at the University of Warsaw.

The Organize Committee invites to present a contribution focusing on the members of the Sobieski family and/or related events, highlighting as much as possible the relationships between Poland, Italy and the Europe of the time.
The participation of scholars and specialists in the field with their different scientific approaches, interests and nationalities, will help expand the research beyond a simple reflection on protagonists and historical facts, offering an analysis aimed at proposing a more in depth investigation of the cultural and geopolitical dynamics of the time.

It will be sponsored by the following institutions and academic institutions (in alphabetical order): British Academy, Cambridge University, CESPoM (Center for Studies on the Age of Sobieski and Modern Poland), Italian Cultural Institute of Warsaw, Istituto Nazionale di Studi Romani (Rome), National Museum of Warsaw, Musei Capitolini (Rome), Museum of King Jan III’s Palace at Wilanów, Tuscia University, Warsaw University.
All contribution will be published in a volume.
