Goethe’s House, Rome
A young Johann Wolfgang Goethe lived in this apartment in Via del Corso, between 1786 and 1788. In 1997, the apartment became the new Goethe Museum in Rome.
Drawings, water colours, diaries and original Goethe letters, as well as many common household objects of the time, are exhibited in six hundred square metres of exhibition space.
The exhibition focuses on Goethe’s “Italian Journey” and on the marked impact it had on the poet from Weimar. However, the house museum is also the venue of many cultural initiatives ranging from concerts to film viewings, readings and conferences.
The Goethe Museum also hosts temporary painting and photography exhibitions.
