ROME, ITALY - MARCH 26: The gravestone of prominent American sculptor William Wetmore Story's wife Emelyn, stands in Rome's 'Non Catholic Cemetery' on March 26, 2013 in Rome, Italy. After working as a sculptor for 40 years Wetmore died in 1895, and was buried in the same tomb. Rome's Non-Catholic Cemetery contains one of the highest densities of famous and important graves anywhere in the world including John Keats, one of England's most famous poets, who died early in 1820 of tuberculosis aged 25, after travelling to Italy in search of a better climate to help cure him of the disease. As well as being the final resting-place of the poets Percy Shelley and John Keats, it is also home to graves of many other painters, sculptors and authors who died in Rome. The cemetery which began it's use in 1730 continues today, containing graves of Orthodox Christians, Jews, Muslims and other non-Christians, and is one of the oldest burial grounds in Europe.
