The Keats-Shelley House (26 Piazza di Spagna) is most famous for being the final dwelling place of John Keats, who died here in 1821, aged just 25, and to this day Keats’s bedroom is preserved as a shrine to his tragic story and extraordinary talent. Displayed through a chain of beautiful rooms, the museum's collection contains a great many treasures and curiosities associated with the lives and works of the Romantic poets, as well as one of the finest libraries of Romantic literature in the world.

Keats House (Hampstead, UK) is where the poet John Keats lived from 1818 to 1820, and is the setting that inspired some of his most memorable poetry. Here, Keats wrote 'Ode to a Nightingale', and fell in love with Fanny Brawne, the girl next door. It was from this house that he travelled to Rome, where he died of tuberculosis aged just 25.

The Keats-Shelley Memorial Association was formed in 1903, with the support of King Edward VII, King Vittorio Emmanuele III and President 'Teddy' Roosevelt. The Museum was opened in 1909. Apart from maintaining the Keats-Shelley Memorial House, the Association is responsible for the upkeep of the graves of Keats and Shelley in the non-Catholic Cemetery at Testaccio. It also awards an annual Keats-Shelley Prize for exemplary essays and poems on Romantic themes. Visit their Web site
