When he had just arrived in Rome, Goethe found out that on All Souls Day, the Pope would be celebrating a chapel in the Papal Palace on the on the Quirinal hill, known at the time as Monte Cavallo because of the two colossal statutes of the Dioscuri and their steeds, originating from the Baths of Constantine. The following day, 3 November 1786, Goethe noted:
Because entry was free, I hurriedly climbed Monte Cavallo on foot. The square in front of the palace has something absolutely personal, beautiful, irregular and grandiose as it is: I am now looking at the two colossuses. Neither human eye nor mind are sufficient to grasp them.
