Giovanni Batistta Gisleni (1600-1672), Italian architect, stage designer, and musician, left his home town of Rome in search of work in order to settle in 1629 for 36 years in Poland where he was employed at the court of three subsequent kings. The article focuses on his stays in the Eternal City: two shorter ones (in 1643 and in 1656(57?)-1664), and the third longer one in 1667. On his first trip, Gisleni was busy employing musicians for the Royal Orchestra that he himself played in. During his second stay, he busied himself organizing the Academy of Saint Luke to which he was elected in March 1656. From 1659, Gisleni lived in Via della Croce where he had his own house built; it featured the coat of arms of Poland and Lithuania on the façade. At the same time, he remained in touch with the country he had stayed in for long, serving in Rome as Poland’s informal diplomatic agent. He eagerly met with Poles coming to Rome, arranging for them to meet some outstanding personalities and taking them round the city sights. A good example of such an activity is the visit young Prince Aleksander Ostrogski-Zasławski paid to Rome in 1669, recorded by his entourage member Kazimierz Wojszanorowicz. That very year, Gisleni published the description of the election of King Michał Korybut Wiśniowiecki. It seems that by the end of his life, Gisleni no longer pursued his career. His only works from that period are the design of church decoration for the Quarantore Service, possibly unaccomplished, and the design (1670) of his own tombstone erected in the Church of S. Maria del Popolo. The final part of the article is dedicated to the tombstone; the Author attempts at deciphering its ambiguous content expressed in a Baroque form and the extensive Latin inscription. The Polish version of the article was published in the proceedings from the Conference: ‘Poland and Europe in the Modern Era’ (Royal Castle in Warsaw, 16-17 December 2008), dedicated to Prof. Juliusz A. Chrościcki.
