On Goethe's traces in Rome...

Andy Warhol, J.W. Goethe, silkprint, 1982, Casa di Goethe

REOPENING 27 April 2021
We will be open from Tuesday to Friday 10.00-18.00. Booking not necessary.


In the very rooms where Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) stayed with painter Johann Heinrich Wilhelm Tischbein (1786-1788) and other German artists on his journey to Italy, the Casa di Goethe – Germany’s only museum abroad – has been opened in 1997.

In September 2012 further rooms for events were acquired on the second floor of the building, while a new bookshop and entrance area was opened in 2014.

The permanent exhibition, conceived in German, Italian and English, addresses/highlights Goethe’s journey to Italy and his sojourn in Rome.

The temporary exhibitions however, are mostly/usually devoted to German-Italien subjects/subject matters as well as the tradition of the journey to Italy in general. Besides those, the Casa houses its own collection. Events hosted by and at the Casa di Goethe such as lectures, readings and colloquia provide a space for artistic, scientific and cultural exchange and encounter that visitors like to return for.

You can visit our specialized library with its rich selection of first editions, illustrated editions and secondary literature on appointment. The library and archive of the Deutscher Künstlerverein belongs now to the museum's collections.

The Casa’s specialized library, available by appointment, not only holds a selection of valuable first editions, but also a wide variety of secondary literature on the poet’s life and oeuvre. As of 2012 the library and archive of the Deutscher Künstlerverein Rom are part of the museum’s collections as well.

The Casa di Goethe is a member of Association of Independent Cultural Institutes (AsKI e.V.) in Bonn and funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media, Germany. It also is/makes the Roman-branch office of the Society for German language (GfdS) and furthermore is present at Lake Garda documenting Goethe’s stay in the small town of Malcesine.

Over the centuries the palazzo Via del Corso 18 hosted many guests and residents – among them e.g. Paul Heyse, the first German writer to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature.
