  • Franca Sinopoli


The aim of this study, which works out a contribution to the IVth Congress of Hungarian Studies (1996), is to testify the intellectual relationship between the Hungarian Imre Károly Reviczky and the Italian historian Carlo Denina, both involved at the end of the 18th century in the well-known form of bibliophily called “bibliomania”.
