Perception of the Orient in Central Europe (1800 – 1918)
21-24 October 2013

After the expedition of Napoleon Bonaparte to Egypt in 1798, Europeans increasingly began to encounter Near Eastern countries and to become acquainted with the cultures of the Orient. The conference seeks to examine the perception of the Orient, especially Egypt, in Central Europe during the 19th century up to the First World War and the legacy of Egyptomania and Orientalism up to that time. The lectures should target cultural interactions, but topics referring to political, economic and social relationships are welcomed as well.

With special reference to the conference venue, attention should be given to travelling and collecting activities of the nobility from the countries of the former Austria-Hungary, that gave rise to libraries, artistic and archaeological collections and common knowledge about the Oriental world.

Title: A hitherto unknown source by Giuseppe Nizzoli, Chancellor of the Austrian Consulate in Egypt (1818-1827)

The so-called Age of the Consuls, during the first years of Egyptology, was crowded by several outstanding personalities. Amongst them, Giuseppe Nizzoli is doubtlessly one of the most fascinating as well as one of the most frequently neglected. Nonetheless, he played a leading role in the formation of some of the most important collections of Egyptian antiquities in Austria and Italy.

Recently, a new manuscript has come to light, allowing to discover previously-unknown details concerning the Chancellor and his collections. This paper intends to investigate this new evidence.
