Carlo Ignazio Busca Arconati Visconti was part of the nineteenth century fascination towards the culture of Ancient Egypt and came in contact with the main personalities of Egyptology. He travelled to Egypt in 1826. Even before this journey, he had started to collect Egyptian antiquities. The "Busca papyrus" was known to modern Egyptological literature but the history of its arrival in Europe remained an unsolved question. In-depth research on this collector has resulted in the discovery of many details regarding his life and the formation of his collection, as well as the discovery of two stelae that belonged to him.
