- The house is situated at the foot of Trinità dei Monti, where the English poet, John Keats spent his final days. It was acquired at the beginning of the century and contains memorabilia relating to the young Romantic poet: items such as a lock of hair, manuscripts, Oscar Wilde's autograph, as well as an urn containing remains of the poet Shelley, Keats' friend, who also died at a young age. The collection of volumes on Romanticism in English and Italian is very impressive. A papal order decreed that Keats' furniture should be burned after his death and so the original furnishings no longer remain.
