Archive of the Institute
The largest sections include the correspondence exchanged between the Institute and art historians, museums, and German, Italian and international institutions over the course of its history; it contains significant evidence of interests and scientific initiatives in the sphere of international art history and, specifically, relating to the history of the Institute. Papers concerning the specific activities of the Photo Library and the Library also form an integral part of this correspondence. While a separate collection of documents centres around Kunstschutz (art protection) activities.
The archive can be accessed for research purposes by appointment.
