Casa di Goethe houses two libraries:
- Italy's only specialised Goethe library (German)
- Historical library of the German artist association
The Casa di Goethe's reference library houses the collection by editor Richard Dorn and is continuously updated.
The library catalogue contains precious first editions of Goethe's books as well as secondary literature on his life and work, on the tradition of the Italian journey, the history of ideas in Italy and Germany and the cultural relationship between both countries. You can do research consulting our online catalogue. There are no public computers available, but you can bring your laptop.
The books can be consulted on appointment (Tuesdays - Fridays, 10.00-18.00).
