Whether or not you are in Rome, if you are an admirer of John Keats’ poetry or poetry in general, then this fundraising event may be of interest to you.

On Wednesday, October 1, 2014, the Non-Catholic Cemetery (also known as the Protestant Cemetery) will be holding a reading of Keats’ poems and letters to raise funds for the renewal of his gravesite area.

Unbeknownst to many, the Non-Catholic Cemetery is operated by means of donations and voluntary service.  Keats is not the only notable figure to be buried in the Cemetery.  In fact, visitors to the Cemetery will find the graves of Percy Bysshe Shelley, Joseph Severn (buried next to Keats), Antonio Gramsci, August von Goethe, Amelia Rosselli, Juan Rodolfo Wilcock, and many more.

Where: Cimitero Acattolico, Via Caio Cestio, 6 –00153 Rome

Time: 6PM – 7PM
