Goethe stayed in Rome from 1786 to 1788, residing in the house in Via del Corso 18 with his friend and artist Tischbein. Today, the house has become a museum, with letters, drawings, books, paintings and a portrait by the artist depicting the journey undertaken by the poet and mentioned in his Journey to Italy, published between 1813 and 1817. The first floor of the building was used as a private home by the Bracci family, with rented accommodation on the upper floors, while there were traders had their businesses on the ground floor. The family history is characterised by close cultural links and friendships with the most famous artists and intellectuals; the neoclassical style of the building was influenced by the family’s friendship with Antonio Canova.
