Dr Clark's house in Rome

Hello! I'm new to the forum and have a question about Dr Clark's house in Rome. I'm visiting the city (relatively) soon and am trying to find out the exact address at which Keats's doctor, James Clark, lived and whether the house is still standing? All I remember is that it is across the square from Piazza di Spagna 26. Does anyone happen to know anything more?

Welcome Cath to the Forum. I can't find anything more specific on the home of Dr. James Clark than that he lived "across the Steps" where John resided at 26 Piazza di Spagna. This is from the author John Evangelist Walsh in his book Darkling I Listen. I'm sure the people at the Keats Shelley Museum might know more.

Thanks for replying BrokenLyre and your suggestion!

I got in touch with the Keats-Shelley House today, but unfortunately all they knew was that Dr Clark's rooms were located in the Piazza di Spagna - none of the books at the Memorial House specified where exactly...

Oh well!

James Clark (Dec 1788 - Jun 29 1870) obit in the London Standard. Even 50 years later his association with Keats doesn't merit a mention.
