He had the chance to travel across Europe and to get in touch with many important jurists like Karl J. Mittermaier. During his journey, he met the polish Andrea Towianski whose religious beliefs determined a wide-ranging change in the attitude of Tancredi Canonico towards his personal life and his academic career.
