Important scholars trace a multifaceted portrait of the Demidovs, and explore their relationships with the culture of their times, Italian in particular: from their travels across the Peninsula in the mid XVIIIth century; to their activity as art collectors during the XIXth century; to their taste in shaping and decorating villas, or in crafting artistic objects in stone; to the activities of the last members in Italy during the XXth century.
