Conference as part of the cycle: “Pioneers of Europe? – Italian-German economic relations in the modern and contemporary age”

In his native city Frankfurt Heinrich Mylius was a well-kown merchant, entrepreneur and banker. Due to economical investments, technical innovations and his political as social engagement Mylius was distinguished citizen of his adopted hometown Milan, too. Furthermore he assumed an important role even in various cultural contexts.

The lecture brings out for the first time one detail of the manifold interrelations between Heinrich Mylius and the Italian-German music scene: it’s going to be presented the reconstruction of the polyhedral relationship between Mylius and Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy around the cities of Milan and Frankfurt during the first half of the nineteenth century.
