The operational framework of the agents in Rome, who represented certain local churches, national communities, namely the representatives in the 19–20th century is less explored than that of their colleagues’ work in the 16–18th century. It is encouraging to note that more and more researchers deal with the interesting yet challenging unfolding of this role’s nature. The Fraknói Research Group organised a grandiose academical session, “The Agents of Foreign Communities and European-American States in Rome”, in Budapest, in the palace of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences already in September 2018. Later on, the lecturers analysed the actions of the agents in the 15–18th century, and then in 2019 they turned their attention to the 19–20th century on another international conference where Italian, Austrian and Hungarian academics were at present in the Eternal City.
