Casa Guidi, Florence, Italy (cont'd)

The Drawing Room is where Elizabeth wrote; it contained bookcases, couches, books from fellow authors, and had so much meaning for Robert that he sanctioned an oil sketch of the room. The couple sensibly filled their home with mostly used items; they were not a couple of extravagance. In 1861, Elizabeth passed away at Casa Guidi and Robert left soon after. The house is open to the public and contains memorabilia of the poetic couple.
