Abstract

A really important moment in N. P. Antsiferov’s education was his Italian travels in 1910s. The trip to Italy had been very common since the XVIII century among wealthy people from Northern Europe, later from USA (this is the so-called “Grand-Tour”), and since the second half of XIX century until First World War also from Russian Empire, also thanks to the promotion by prof. I. M. Grevs. The aim of my article is to outline the standard and individual elements of Antsiferov’s travels, according to his late memoirs of three trips, in comparison with the experience of his Russian and Foreign contemporaries. The first voyage proves young Antsiferov’s poor preparation, whereas the second and the third ones were more thought-out and show more similarities with the experience both of his countrymen and Western travellers, particularly in the choice of itineraries. It has to do with the books he read and the people he travelled with. N. P. Antsiferov, I. M. Grevs, Grand-Tour, Travel Notes, Russians in Italy.
