This paper proposes to examine the ties the young Albert Einstein had with the Italian scientific community between 1895 and 1901 in order to better understand the context of his educational background. It analyses both his real and probable ties with the University of Pavia, Milan's Politecnico and Accademia di scienze e lettere. It concludes with a discussion of relations his friend, Michele Besso, developed with the University of Rome, including a thesis on wireless telegraphy on which Einstein collaborated.
