    This paper presents the inter-relationships between the Poles arriving at Padova for University studies or actively present in the Venetian Republic during the Renaissance and the representatives of the Serenissima intellectual elite. The author is particularly interested in the aspects of the contacts that touch upon the humanist culture developed in the suburban mansions, which constituted the characteristic feature of the culture at the turn of the 15th century. The paper examines the arguments in support of the thesis that the numerous presence of the incomers from the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth had a decisive influence on the cultural choices made by Polish and Lithuanian gentry in regards to construction of the suburban residences and their ambitions to introduce into those spaces some elements of art and literary culture adopted from the environment in which they had lived in Italy.
