Casa
di Goethe

The Via del Corso 18 in Rome is a remarkable place, steeped in history.
Where once Johann Wolfgang Goethe (1749 – 1832) lived with his painter friend Johann Heinrich Wilhelm Tischbein during his famous Italian journey, a unique museum has been established: the Casa di Goethe. Visit the permanent exhibition that is well worth seeing, discover Goethe’s versatility and make a foray into the 18th century.

The museum features not only two impressive libraries, but also regular temporary exhibitions, a scholarship programme and events dedicated to German-Italian cultural exchange.
