Italy had a tremendous impact on literary heavyweight Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. He stayed in Italy for two years, from 1786 to 1788. The very rooms he stayed in with painter Johann Heinrich Wilhelm Tischbein and other German artists have now been converted into a museum dedicated to the influence Italy had on him as a person and on his works. On display are original drawings, watercolors, diaries, and letters. The museum also features a specialist library containing a fine collection of first editions, illustrated editions, and secondary literature.
