The Protestant Cemetery in Rome, also known as "Non Catholic Cemetery" or Englishmen's Cemetery, is located near the Pyramid of Cestius (a funerary monument built about 30 BC as a tomb for Caius Cestius) and it is partly surrounded by the ancient Aurelian walls. The cemetery contains the graves of famous personalities such as the English poets John Keats and Percy Bysshe Shelley, the American poet Gregory Corso, Goethe's only son and Antonio Gramsci.
