After the death of his wife, Stella Sas Korczynska (d. 1956), the renowned Italian architect Piero Bottoni (1903–1973) established a scholarship in her name for young Polish sculptors. It included the financing of a four-month stay in Italy for one person every two years. The choice was made by the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan out of the candidates indicated by Polish schools of art. The scholarship program consisted of the study of sculpture in Milan and a two-month trip around Italy, i.a. tours of the most important monuments, museums and galleries. Among the scholarship holders were Anna Praxmayer (in 1962), Zofia Mital (in 1970) and Zofia Kulik (in 1972). Their impressions from the stay in Italy, very different, depending on their personalities as well as the artistic temperaments, resulted in interesting artistic achievements. The young artists’ trips around Italy are documented not only by works made then but also by the survived sources, both official (formal letters and protocols, reports) and private ones (letters, memoirs, travel journals, which included drawing notes), and newspaper articles. Despite the wealth of the survived source materials and subsequent significant achievements of the artists, this youthful Italian episode of their biographies is little known and, consequently, not very appreciated in the analyses of their creative output.
