Rome's Protestant Cemetary in the news

Postby Credo Buffa » Mon Feb 13, 2006 9:30 pm

I just found this very distressing article on Yahoo news:

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20060213/lf_afp/afplifestyleitaly;_ylt=Ah6HM6PrNCwFghNH_SivJpADW7oF;_ylu=X3oDMTBiMW04NW9mBHNlYwMlJVRPUCUl

Is there anything the Keats/Shelley fans of the world can do?

I think maybe the page has changed or your link is wrong Credo - this has nothing whatsoever to do with with The Protestant Cemetary in Rome as far as I can see :? :roll: :?:

Is there some hidden meaning in that article that only you can glean?

Oh, weird! The link is the article I read right before the one about the Protestant Cemetary. . . I'll fix it.

EDIT: Alrighty, all better :)

There was an article about the Protestant Cemetery in Rome recently.They may have to close it because it is deteriorating and there are not enough funds to support keeping it open.If anyone has ideas to help please write me.I'm open and I wish to do something.

Hi Catlover :)
One idea I had was to contact the Keats-Shelley Memorial museum in Rome and see if they might be able to set up a fund where we can send money to help keep the cemetary open--or at the very least replace/rennovate Keats's gravestone.

That's a good thought.If you write them I will too and if enough of us contact them then they will take notice and perhaps come up with some kind of fund.I'm sure they are very much aware of the issue.
