<title> SUMMARY </title>This paper deals with a scientific tour of the Italian observatories made in 1875 by the French astronomer Georges Rayet (1839-1906) who was mandated by the French Government involved in the reorganization of astronomical research in the 1870s. His notes and publications relating his investigations permit us to draft a listing of the astronomical instruments used in Italy at that time. We attempt to show that the Italian model praised by G. Rayet and based on a decentralized system and on the coordination of the spectroscopic studies could not be applied in France. The persistence of the centralization and the monopoly of the Meudon Observatory in the astrophysical field could explain such an impossibility. However, the reasons of these French features remain to be specified.
