Founded in 1903, we maintain and support the Keats-Shelley House at 26 Piazza di Spagna, Rome, where the English poet John Keats died in 1821. As part of our ongoing committment to poetry lovers, we publish the scholarly Keats-Shelley Review and run the annual Keats-Shelley and Young Romantic Prizes to find the most promising poets and essayists from around the world.
